7 June 2019

Sandvik has announced the appointment of Johan Salwén as technical marketing specialist for the EMEA region.

Johan will be based at Sandvik’s sales office in Kista, Sweden. His role will primarily be looking after the EMEA region, while also supporting product management and R&D projects. Part of this activity will involve joint visits with the sales teams to customers’ premises to assist and advise on the appropriate material selection for a range of corrosion issues.

He returns to Sandvik following 12 months working as an application engineer for metallurgy with a heat treatment company based in Sweden. Prior to this he worked for Sandvik Materials Technology for seven years, based in Sandviken, where he held a number of roles, mainly on the research and development side of the business. These included R&D responsibilities in the tube department as a development engineer then process engineer. He later became R&D development engineer in the welding department, and then took the role of senior R&D development engineer.

Johan has an International Welding Engineer (IWE) diploma from KTH. He has great experience and knowledge of different welding techniques and welding of a large range of materials, from carbon steels to highly alloyed stainless steels and nickel alloys.

Barinder Ghai, Regional Technical Marketing Manager - EMEA application products for Sandvik, said: “We are delighted to have Johan back within the Sandvik ‘family’ as he brings with him a wealth of industry experience, having previously worked in engineering positions involving stainless steel materials and metallurgy with fertilizer, welding and heat exchanger applications. We are confident he will have a significant contribution to make to our technical sales and marketing activities moving forward.”

After studying at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Johan achieved a Masters’ degree in materials science. He is a Swedish national and is fluent in English.
