Over the years I've come to known Autoadapt in more ways than one, as a competitor, as a dealer and even as an end user, says Autoadapt's newly appointed Managing Director, Jan M Jensen. It's a company that has a reputation of great service and high quality products. I felt very honoured to be offered the position and I'm eager to take on the challenge of leading this great company to the next level.

I've known Jan for many years. He's a great person and a very competent leader, says former CEO Håkan Sandberg. I'm very pleased with the board's choice of the new Managing Director and I feel confident leaving Autoadapt in his capable hands.
