As a solutions provider of air and environmental technology, Austria-based Scheuch has expanded its operations worldwide and across various industries such as metals, industrial minerals and wood-based panel industries, among others. In June this year, the Scheuch Asia subsidiary welcomed Mirko Köhler to the role of managing director, succeeding Jan Eike Graeff who has been in the post since 2019.
In his new role, Köhler is responsible for the expansion of Scheuch Asia’s sales and partner network. Outlining his strategies in strengthening the company’s presence in the region, Köhler highlighted that one of the key initiatives for the next 12-18 months is to establish a service hub for South East Asia with fully trained commissioning and mechanical supervision for its clients directly on the spot.
He told Panels & Furniture Asia: “We aim to greatly extend our after-sales and service offering to our customers in the region. Our focus will be on offering shorter delivery times for critical spare parts as well as the introduction of service packages tailored to the individual needs of our customers.
“We are also aiming to localise a part of the engineering and supply chain to bring down cost and delivery times for our clients whilst offering more capabilities to manage projects with increased local content.”
