At Elos Medtech, we take pride in nurturing talent and providing a platform for individuals to flourish in their careers. One such success story within our organization is that of Jimmy Johansson, who has been an integral part of our team for the past three years. Jimmy’s journey with Elos Medtech exemplifies dedication, growth, and a passion for making a difference in the field of medical devices.

Before joining Elos Medtech, Jimmy had a successful career in the automotive industry. However, he was drawn to the unique challenges and opportunities presented by the medical devices sector. The prospect of contributing to the improvement of patients’ lives resonated deeply with him, prompting him to transition into the world of medical devices.

Sam Svännel, VP Sales Life Science, says:

 ”Jimmy initially joined us as a Production Manager, responsible for ensuring the stability and efficiency of our processes. We were quick to notice his exceptional work ethic and keen understanding of the industry and that earned him recognition, leading to his promotion as one of our Site Managers. In this role, Jimmy also took on additional responsibilities in project management, tool making, and overseeing the technical department.”

Rising career

His journey continued to ascend, and Jimmy’s dedication did not go unnoticed. He was appointed as the Director of Operations, taking on responsibilities for all functions at our Skara sites, except for Sales. This role marked a significant milestone in his career, showcasing his ability to manage diverse aspects of our operations seamlessly.

In January of this year, Jimmy assumed the role of Vice President of our Diagnostics Business. Leading this crucial sector, he focuses on delivering outstanding results and fostering the growth of the business.

”The diagnostics business holds a special place in my heart, as the parts produced directly impact and change patients’ lives,” explains Jimmy.

Dedicated employees

Elos Medtech’s diagnostic businesses’ involvement in the production of parts for respirators, especially during the global pandemic, has highlighted the critical nature of their work. Partnering with both large, established companies and innovative startups, the diagnostics team, under Jimmy’s leadership, plays a pivotal role in developing groundbreaking products that positively impact people’s lives.

Jimmy reflects on his journey, stating:

“I have the privilege of working with so many people who have unconditionally helped and supported me when I was new to the company, and I learn every day from my colleagues. A company is nothing without its dedicated employees, and at Elos, we have plenty of them. Another thing that has felt very positive is the support I have received from the senior management who support, coach and challenge when necessary.”

Work and family balance

Beyond his professional achievements, Jimmy maintains an active life outside of work. Living just 35 minutes from the Skara site, he relishes spending time outdoors, and engaging in sports. Not only does he play sports himself, but he also coaches,soccer and ice hockey, sharing his passion for these activities with his children.

Jimmy Johansson’s journey at Elos Medtech is not just a success story; it’s a testament to our commitment to fostering growth, innovation, and a supportive work environment.
