ScanBox recruits to further global expansion
In February 2019, ScanBox opened up for selling its products on the South American market. Careful product training has been carried out with representatives from the agency located in Chile. The agency will start by covering six countries on the continent. This is only six months after ScanBox made a similar investment in India, which has already resulted in the company’s largest order thus far. Close to 100 Banquet Masters for hot and cold food have been delivered to a conference center in Bombay. As a result of the rapid expansion, ScanBox has recruited Peter Schön as a board member to promote further growth.
Peter Schön most recently came from a position as successful CEO of Granuldisk for 13 years. In total, he has over 26 years of industry experience in leading and operating companies that manufacture commercial kitchen equipment both nationally and internationally. Merits that are particularly interesting to ScanBox are that Peter accelerated sales as President of Rational USA and turned the North American market from many years of negative earnings into a profitable market as well as multiplied sales during his time as CEO of Rational Scandinavia AB.
“Peter is an important addition to the team, since he has extensive experience in building companies as trademarks and an extensive global network in our industry. Furthermore, Peter has broad experience of building new markets rapidly which ScanBox now aims to do,” says Torbjörn Peltonen, Chairman of ScanBox.
When ScanBox looks ahead, they are convinced that Peter’s experience increases their chances of successfully opening up additional markets over the next few years:
“We are very positive about the future and see that there is a lot of potential for our products on the export market. But we also predict a bright future on the Scandinavian market with our “connected boxes” that provide a unique insight for our customers in their food transport routines. This will provide our users with monetary and food safety benefits,” says Torbjörn Peltonen.
