Gränges has approximately 1,800 employees. The Group’s day-to-day work is led by 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. Group Management members report directly to CEO. A number of other key persons in the Group also report to the CEO.
The sales organization 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, Tennessee, Salisbury, North Carolina and Newport, Arkansas, in the US.
Gränges’ strategic research work is managed globally, while the customer-driven development work 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 the 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 Communications, Law and certain financial functions, among other things, are run by the headquarters. The IT department is group-wide.
The Board is responsible for the company’s organization 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.
