Christian Benz appointed new CEO of Jetter AG

Christian Benz takes over the chair of the managing board of Jetter AG with effect from 1 January 2014. He replaces company founder Martin Jetter, who is moving to the supervisory board. Plans are also in place to appoint Stefan Düring, head of Corporate Development at Bucher AG, as a member of the supervisory board. Dr Michael Oltmanns will remain chairman of the supervisory board. Kurt Hauser and Theo Frank have declared their readiness to relinquish their mandates on the supervisory board.

Martin Jetter says: "We have therefore completed the planned restructuring and changes at the top of the company. Christian Benz will continue to develop Jetter AG and further strengthen our competencies in the field of control and drive technology for industrial and mobile automation."

Christian Benz has been a member of the executive board since April 2013 and is responsible for the areas of Sales and Marketing.

Christian Benz explains: "We are pursuing a clear strategy of growth. The area of industrial automation will grow on the basis of defined segments and strengthen our market shares accordingly. Even stronger growth is possible in our second business field of mobile automation. Major advances will be made in the next 5-10 years, especially in the electrification of systems and agricultural implements. Operating under the umbrella of the new parent company - Bucher Industries AG from Switzerland - will give us new perspectives for targeted investments. This will enable us to continue supplying the various Bucher divisions with perfect, market-appropriate products and also offer outstanding total solutions in defined market segments."
