Lindemann Metal Recycling Solutions has announced that Carl Gustaf Göransson is the company’s new ceo.

Lindemann, a Düsseldorf, Germany company producing shears, shredders and balers, was acquired from Metso in 2022 by Swedish private equity company Mimir Group. Göransson will be responsible for delivering Lindemann’s ‘ambitious market and service growth strategy’.

Meanwhile, previous ceo Ioannis Giouvanitskas will become senior executive advisor for both Mimir and Lindemann. The company says he will ‘support the development of strategic accounts and drive the Lindemann and Mimir M&A agenda’.

Göransson has worked in the global capital goods industry, including senior executive positions at Volvo Construction Equipment and Cargotec. Before becoming ceo of Lindemann, he was global president of CNH Industrial’s construction equipment division in Munich. From 2021-23, he was the managing partner of Munich-based consultancy abcg AB in the transportation industry.

‘Lindemann is a respected brand with a long and venerable heritage and it remains more relevant today than ever before,’ Göransson says. ‘I’m excited at the prospect of helping ensure Lindemann’s continued success, both on behalf of the company’s stakeholders and also for the benefits the metal circular economy can bring to society.

‘In my new role I will do everything to steer the company into a successful future and bring all our employees and customers along with me on this exciting journey.’

Lindemann chairman Magnus Yngen says the company is happy to have Göransson on the team and that it can retain Giouvanitskas in his new role.
