At the same time Flexit’s board have assigned Knut Skogstad (49) as the new CEO from 1st of May this year. Knut has 20 years of experience in Flexit, and until now been employed as Business Development Manager.
Flexit is under growth and expansion and has a number of exciting projects and products underway. Flexit focus on clean, fresh air.

Flexit is therefore developing a completely new energy efficient and environmental friendly product range for ventilation and heating of homes.
