Gränges has approximately 1500 employees. The Group’s day-to-day work is led by the CEO Johan Menckel. Management is mainly exercised through two forums – firstly in the Group Management and secondly in the Boards of the Group’s subsidiaries. The members of the Group Management report directly to the CEO. A number of other key persons in the Group also report to the CEO.
The sales organisation is divided according to geographical regions, which today consist of Asia, Europe and the Americas.
Gränges has production sites in Shanghai, China; Finspång, Sweden; and in Huntingdon, Tennesse, Salisbury, North Carolina and Newport, Arkansas, in the US.
Gränges’ strategic research work is managed globally, while the customer-driven development is carried out locally, in close co-ordination with customers and production plants. Metal purchases are handled locally at each production site. There are quality functions at the different production sites.
Gränges has application engineers, product developers and technicians in all regions (Asia, Europe, and Americas).
Human Resources is locally based, and has, just like other local functions, a close co-operation with the headquarters in Stockholm.
Investor relations, Corporate Communication, Law and certain financial functions, among other things, are run by the headquarters. The IT-department is group-wide for Gränges.
The Board is responsible for the company’s organisation and administration. The Board also issues guidelines and instructions to the CEO. The Board’s task is to ensure control of the company’s accounting, administration and financial affairs.
