Vellinge – May 4th, 2021- Mr Jonas Sjöström, Managing Director of SAMON AB, has decided to step down from his current position as the Managing Director of SAMON AB as of July 1, 2021.

SAMON is a world leading niche supplier of refrigeration gas detection solutions for industrial, commercial, and marine applications. The company offers complete gas surveillance products targeting a growing non-cyclical segment, benefitting from increasingly stringent regulations and environmental requirements. SAMON is headquartered in Vellinge outside of Malmö, Sweden, and supplies international markets though long-standing relationships with industrial leading OEMs, distributors, and blue-chip end-customers. The company has an annual turnover of approximately 50 MSEK. SAMON is owned by Alder II AB, Mr Jonas Sjöström and selected people from the board and the company.

SAMON was founded in 1990 by its current Managing Director Mr Jonas Sjöström and in recent years the company has grown rapidly thanks to its broad product portfolio, customer application knowledge and supported with stringent regulations in the refrigeration markets.

The SAMON team has successfully worked together to develop the company to its current position, and I am happy to step down from the MD role and into a strategic position as board member. I will be happy to support Alexander with whatever I can do and will actively work with our acquisition program to try to attract other relevant companies that would like to join in on our growth plan, says Mr Jonas Sjöström.
I am delighted to take on this challenge and rewarding duty and look forward to working together with the team in Vellinge, the board and to continue the success of SAMON also into the future, says Mr Alexander Larsson.
