Presidents / 1909: Gunnar Jacobsson / Gunnar Jacobsson

Gunnar Jacobsson

Expanded the pneumatic range

1909-1940: Gunnar Jacobsson
Gunnar Jacobsson, Managing Director of Nya AB Atlas from 1909, continued in the same position at AB Atlas Diesel after the merger with AB Diesels Motorer in 1917.

He expanded the pneumatic range with new tools and air compressors.

Seldom has a corporate manager had to suffer such a long uninterrupted series of frustrations, but when he retired in 1940 Jacobsson had succeeded in keeping the company alive and in 1937 bringing it on the road of prosperity.

Gunnar Jacobsson was Managing Director between 1909 and 1940. He was succeeded by Walter Wehtje.
