Tomas Hedenborg, Group CEO of Fastems, elected as President of Orgalime

Orgalime, the European Engineering Industries Association, has just elected Tomas Hedenborg of Fastems as its President.

We are delighted that Tomas Hedenborg is taking up this very important mandate. The company Fastems as a whole, and especially their representatives in CECIMO’s Board have always been strongly involved inside CECIMO. Tomas constantly highlighted the potential of automatization and now digitalization for the industry. He and CECIMO made it clear that our industry is at the core of “Industre 4.0” and the Internet of Things,” said Jean-Camille Uring, President of CECIMO.

This nomination will surely reinforce the already close collaboration between Orgalime and CECIMO. Tomas Hedenborg will emphasize that machine tools are indeed the mother machines and also that they are constantly on the cutting edge of innovation which makes them key instruments of the manufacturing renaissance. He will stand for issues important to us, like innovation and skills. CECIMO is willing to give its full support to Orgalime in all their actions aiming at revitalizing manufacturing investment in Europe,” stated Filip Geerts, Director General of CECIMO.
