Intensive concentration on compressed air products and international marketing
Walter Wehtje succeeded Gunnar Jacobsson in 1940.
This initiated an era of intensive concentration on compressed air products and on international marketing.
He represented a new kind of leadership in what had hitherto been a technology-dominated company. Previously head of a department store in Stockholm, he was a businessman brought up in sales and marketing.
Walter Wehtje was President between 1940 and 1957. He was succeeded by Kurt-Allan Belfrage.
