“Mr Fischer knows the challenges facing a medium-sized company in global mechanical and plant engineering and will be a great asset to us with his extensive experience,” said Wolf-Gerd Dieffenbacher, chairman of the Management Board.

Dieffenbacher is also restructuring the management of its Wood Business Unit. Bernd Bielfeldt will leave the company and hand over the division to his former deputy Stefan Zipf.
