Fagus-GreCon has decided to distribute the responsibility for company management across three pairs of shoulders rather than two effected from August 15, 2023. The company took this step to fulfill another prerequisite for profitable growth. This change is also an initiative to drive forward toward becoming a customer-oriented technology leader in the areas of measurement technology and preventative fire protection in an even more consistent way, by means of the transformation process that is needed as a result of digitalisation and globalisation.
Expressing his excitement Dipl.Ing. Alexander Kuppe, the new member of the Fagus-GreCon company management said, “Fagus-GreCon has managed to successfully overcome new challenges on numerous occasions during its history, which goes back more than a hundred years. I am looking forward to helping to shape the future of this company together with my colleagues and our committed employees during this important phase.”
Dipl.Ing. Alexander Kuppe already took over the management of the marketing, sales, after-sales and service departments with immediate effect. Dipl.-Kfm. Uwe Kahmann will continue to be responsible for all commercial areas of the company and its subsidiaries, as well as for the UNESCO World Heritage Fagus factory. Dr. Michael Gawronski will continue to manage production, the R&D areas and also quality and information management.
Mr. Kuppe brought some very appropriate experience to the table with his impressive professional track record. He supplemented his degree in mechanical engineering, with a focus on process engineering, with a part-time Bachelor of Business Administration degree. 25 years ago, he started his career in the marketing of machinery and systems which required explanation, since when he has held management positions in the areas of marketing, sales, service and international business development in global medium-sized companies.
Praising the excellence of Alexander Kuppe, Uwe Kahmann emphatically stated, “We are convinced that Alexander Kuppe will be a valuable addition to our management team with his experience and commitment. Together we will continue the success story of Fagus-GreCon, impress our national and international customers even more with our products and services, and will continuously expand our share of the market.”
