He speaks the customer voice

Ulf Abrahamsson Key Account Manager

This past year has really tried us. The world changed rapidly over night, and much will forever be transformed. This type of change will probably take place at an even faster pace in the future, and it is important to keep up.

We notice that Ulf Abrahamsson has had a lot on his desk lately. It has certainly not been an easy thing to deal with the problems that have arisen as a result of the material delays most industries have experienced. First, a pandemic that resulted in several countries' lock down and completely shut down of factories worldwide. Then, earlier this year, we experienced a stranded container ship in the Suez Canal which caused a long chain reaction to the whole shipping industry. The consequences of these events are in fact difficult to imagine.

We do all need to cross through outer circumstances at regular basis and this is exactly what belongs to Ulf's everyday work. With an agile mindset he set new targets and goals depending on the direction of the wind. He works as a Key Account Manager and sees himself as the customer's representative into the business, a good description in fact. This means that you need to be sharp and listen for signals of what the next thing on the market will be. With his 36 years at Spaljisten, he has an enormous amount of experience. He plays a big role to the successful collaborations with our customers.

So Ulf, what makes Spaljisten an exciting workplace?

- Working with large customers gives us opportunities to constantly grow and invest in order to lead the way in the development of the products of the future, which is of course incredibly fun and exciting.

It is no exaggeration that a lot is going on at Spaljisten. The organization is forward-leaning and works innovatively to find new ways of working, implementing new automation across the production and develop the materials and adjust to more sustainable alternatives.

What makes you most proud to be a part of Spaljisten?

- The demands of the end consumer are high, and that is something we have with us in all parts of our business. Our mission is to be a world-class furniture front manufacturer, and in some respects, we are actually already there. In some parts we surpass our competitors in Europe, even though they are much bigger than us.

Together we make it possible to deliver high-quality furniture fronts, and there is a lot of time behind the scenes with ongoing discussions and developments with our customers. With a job that is hectic between laps, you need to relax after working hours, and Ulf prefers to take his border collie Smilla out into the woods for a walk to clear his head. But if it is Ulf that walks Smilla or the other way around can probably only she answer to, but anyhow, it keeps him alert at work and we want him for many more years.
