Thomas Norrby Joins Nynas as Senior Technical Coordinator Naphthenics

Thomas Norrby has joined Nynas as a Senior Technical Coordinator Naphthenics. He brings more than 16 years of experience in the lubricant industry, including working as R&D manager for Statoil Lubricants for most of that time. In his new role, Thomas will be working as a technical expert, giving support to Nynas’ customers in the areas of industrial lubricants and metalworking fluids, where an increased interest on naphthenic oils have been seen in the last few years.

Norrby is also active as Affiliate Professor at the Department of Machine Design at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden, where he coordinates industrial R&D projects.

“I have had a long and fruitful period of scientific work with various universities and clients within applied science, and this is something I can pursue in this position from a slightly different angle,” Norrby said. “My main input will be in lubricant applications. There is so much going on at Nynas with new technology regarding lubricants and lubricant systems, so it is an attractive place to work and grow.”

Working as part of the Nynas TechDMS-LUB group in Nynäshamn, Sweden, Norrby said his role will be very solution oriented towards customers.

“My work will involve applied R&D work and offering hands-on advice to clients about improvements,” Norrby said. “One of the many reasons why customers want to buy from Nynas is the high level of support they get. Up until a few weeks ago I was one of those discerning customers, so I have a good idea of the kind of support they need.”
