Today on 5 May 2008, Aktiebolaget Ångpanneföreningen has changed its name to ÅF AB.
"The time is ripe," says Jonas Wiström, President of ÅF.
"Today ÅF is as well known as a brand as is Ångpanneföreningen - but ÅF better reflects the modern, international technical consulting company that we have become. So we're changing our name," Wiström explains, and continues, "And by making the change to ÅF, we can still retain a clear connection to our proud history."
The name change took place in the afternoon local time, after the Swedish Companies Registration Office had registered the changes in the Company's Articles of Association.
The Annual General Meeting held on 23 April 2008 resolved to amend the Articles of Associations meaning i.a. that the name of the Company shall be ÅF AB.
