AVROGAN’S STORY OF FOUNDING
Avrogan was founded in late 2019 by Hamed Hakimian and Arsham Mazaheri, two long-lasting friends and colleagues, who are experienced consultant leaders with a track record in service management and aftermarket business. They both have experience in serving various sizes of OEM and industrial manufacturers regarding their aftermarket and spare part pricing as well as supporting them with the design, development, and implementation of the analytical tools used for their business management and SaaS solutions for their aftermarket business.
After working with several of the largest companies in Europe, North America, and the Far East in their previous roles and seeing the needs of the businesses for guidance through the fourth industrial revolution (Industry 4.0), which made the circular economy an inevitable future, Hamed and Arsham decided to take the steps.
The need was clear, the expertise was in place, the desire to help the clients was in their veins, and on top of that, they both wanted to create a fun working place where both clients and employees enjoy supporting each other for their challenges, while not forgetting the main purpose of the life, which is to live!
Avrogan became fully operational right from the beginning of 2020 with the head office in Stockholm, Sweden. Despite the challenges of the time (global pandemic!), Avrogan grew quite fast all over Europe and North America through the networks of its senior partners. Avrogan is serving some of industry leading OEMs in these continents with top satisfaction rate.
