Kim Klausen, Founder of the Nordic headquarter Covestro A/S

After selling the business, Kim H. Klausen was employed in Bayer and became in charge of the Nordic countries and the Baltics. As of October 1st 2017 Kim H. Klausen handed over the position as CEO to Lars Bruntse, making Kim H. Klausen able to devote his time to the job as being Head of Covestro Global Wind Project.

Lars Bruntse was employed in Covestro A/S in April 2016 as Sales & Marketing Manager, coming from a similar position in the furniture company HOWE. Lars Bruntse quickly found himself in our world of liquid polyurethane systems, and only 1½ year after his first day, he said yes to the position as CEO of Covestro A/S.

Lars Bruntse, CEO Covestro A/S

Since September 1, 2015 the business, Covestro A/S (Nordic), has been a subsidiary of Covestro with 14,100 employees globally. Covestro A/S last year had a turnover of more than DKK 300 million. The interim financial statements for this year points to an even better result, and reality has by far surpassed the expectations Kim H. Klausen had for more than 30-years ago when he began to experiment with the two fluids that are needed to create PUR foam at home on the kitchen table in a property next to where he lived with his family. Kim H. Klausen had his first big success with his business, when freon was banned from use in refrigerator insulation. Ahead of large international companies, he developed a freon-free insulation foam. Within a short period of time, the business had gained one third of the Nordic market and invested in, among other things, a factory for the production of the two fluids needed to produce PUR.
