Stefan on first year as President


A year since becoming president of Dormer Pramet, Stefan Steenstrup, looks back at the last 12 months and gives his expectations for 2018.


Stefan said: “I have really enjoyed my first year as president. It has been great to meet many customers and members of our team around the world. When travelling, you get to see different viewpoints and market needs, but one thing which remains consistent is the passion everyone has for Dormer Pramet.


“Every day we are building and developing relationships with customers, growing their trust and proving our expertise. Yes, this is backed up by our high-quality products, easily accessible services and positive market conditions, but that personal approach to our daily tasks really does make a difference.


“Looking ahead to 2018, it’s great to see growth in markets such as the USA, China and Brazil, which provides optimism for the future. Also, we are increasing sales of round tools and indexables around the world, with standard inserts rising by 19%, and interest growing in our solid carbide milling and drilling tools.


“We are a relatively new organization, but in the last 12 months we have shown that by working together, with clear and achievable goals in front of us, we can deliver great success for our organization and importantly our customers. Thanks to everyone for your support.”
