Plastics and additives distributor Biesterfeld Plastic has appointed Steen Jensen as the general manager of its Scandinavian subsidiary Biesterfeld Nordic.

Jensen succeeds Eric Lundén, who is moving on from the company after six years.

According to Biesterfeld, Jensen has over 20 years' experience in chemicals and plastics distribution and extensive knowledge of the Nordic and European markets. Most recently, he was COO of an internationally operating independent subsidiary of a Scandinavian plastics distributor.

‘Over the coming years we intend to strategically drive forward the expansion of our business and our organizational structure,’ said Carsten Harms, member of the Biesterfeld AG board. ‘Steen Jensen is a very experienced market expert who is also an excellent fit with our jointly defined vision and values.’
