Kährs Group strengthens Group Management

Kährs Group, a world leading manufacturer of wood flooring and PVC-free resilient flooring, is reorganizing and strengthening Group Management as of 1 February 2017. The purpose is to further increase focus on the operational management, to strengthen the consumer message and to develop the sales concept on the global project market.

Kährs Group has undergone major changes in recent years that have laid the foundation for continued expansion in both the consumer and the project markets. To clarify responsibilities and to streamline operations, the current Supply Chain will become part of Operations. Marketing will focus on areas related to marketing communication, design and digitalization. The global resilient flooring business will have a new manager and Kährs Group is creating a new Group management position to develop the areas of Communication and Compliance.

"By these organizational changes, we are taking another step towards our ambition to become part of leading interior design concepts, primarily by strengthening the operations of the business, but also by further simplifying and clarifying our message to both the consumer, and the project markets," says Christer Persson, President and CEO of Kährs Group.
