Darmstadt, January 2016. The long-established company GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH, part of the Italian IMS Deltamatic Group, is appointing its new Management Board. As of January 14th,  2016, three Managing Directors will conduct the business of one of the world's leading providers of slitter rewinders and winding machines. Former Managing Director Andreas Hollmann left the company consensually.

 

Roberta Ghilardi, who already led the company as Managing Director in 2014, will be responsible for, amongst others, Administration and Finance. Dr Hans-Peter Bauer, Head of Mechanical Engineering at GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH since 1997, becomes Managing Director Operations (Engineering and Production). Harald Knechtel, since 2011 Head of Sales, is appointed Managing Director for the company's worldwide sales and marketing activities.

 

 

“We are delighted that we have been able to appoint the Management Board with Mrs Ghilardi, Dr Bauer and Mr Knechtel. Having been with the company for many years, they are extremely familiar with our company and the markets. Together, in line with our company's future-oriented corporate governance, we will be able to secure the success and competitiveness of GOEBEL IMS in the long term and continue to inspire our customers,” says Daniele Vaglietti, CEO of IMS Deltamatic S.p.A.

 

GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH and IMS, a brand of the Italy-based IMS Deltamatic Group, merged their business activities in March 2015. The first step following this fusion was to expand the international sales channels, customer service and the product portfolio for customers worldwide. The new trio at the top will continue this success story. 

 

Optimising the brand's position in the core markets and tapping new sales markets is the top priority for Harald Knechtel. The new Managing Director for Sales and Marketing at GOEBEL Schneid- und Wickelsysteme GmbH has already successfully expanded new markets in his role as Head of Sales from 2011 to 2015. Collaborating closely with Product Development, Harald Knechtel was able to achieve numerous synergy effects and successes, including the largest single order in the company's history. His many years of experience in steering international sales channels have provided Harald Knechtel with extensive expertise in the products and in-depth knowledge of the core industries.

 

The new Managing Director Operations (Engineering and Production) is Dr Hans-Peter Bauer, who has worked for GOEBEL since 1989 and in leading management positions for many years. As Head of Mechanical Construction, he played a vital role in further expanding the product range. The company developed numerous new machines under his leadership, including the largest slitter rewinder MONOSLIT GIANT. Dr Bauer intends to expand the product portfolio through product developments such as new, contemporary machine constructions and control systems that meet customer needs and create long-term value. In close cooperation with the parent company IMS Deltamatic, the Darmstadt based company will be able to achieve numerous synergy effects. 

 

For Roberta Ghilardi, responsible for Administration, Finance and other functional units, the top priority is to secure and strengthen the company's competitive position. Since GOEBEL was taken over by the machine group IMS Deltamatic S.p.A., she was responsible for the strategic direction of the Darmstadt based company. “By restructuring, we have laid the groundwork for a successful future, even in difficult market and competition conditions. We will therefore continue to optimise business processes and maintain a consistent customer focus.”
