At the forefront of the hydrogen and fuel cell industry since 2008, Per Wassén has been nominated to join Impact Coatings’ Board of Directors.
Mark Shay, Chairman of the Board of Impact Coatings, said Wassén has formed strategic alliances with global leaders in the automotive, power and maritime industries.
“He has commercialised and industrialised what was originally a start-up company and built a globally recognised brand,” Shay added.
“In his previous executive role within the Volvo Group, for many years he was involved in developing leading-edge vehicle technology companies in several application areas.”
“On behalf of our two largest shareholders, Accendo Capital and Hyundai, and for the obvious benefit of all shareholders, I welcome Per Wassén’s nomination to Impact Coating’s Board of Directors.”
Commenting on the nomination, Wassén said, “Impact Coatings, with an ambitious vision and a long-term commitment from its main owners, has assembled a hard-working team that delivers innovative and high-quality solutions in PVD coating for fuel cells and for a wide range of decorative, metallisation and reflector applications.”
“I would like to challenge and help the board and management to strengthen the company’s market presence globally and to accelerate the industrialization process that began in 2018.”
