At the same time I want to thank Omar for his valuable contribution to the company over the years and during the intense period of business transformation,” Hans Sohlström, president and CEO of Ahlstrom said.

Ahlstrom is a global leader in fibre-based materials, supplying innovative and sustainable solutions to its customers.
