With effect from 15 Aug 2023, the responsibility for company management at Fagus-GreCon will be distributed across three pairs of shoulders rather of two.

Alexander Kuppe is taking over the management of the marketing, sales, after-sales and service departments with immediate effect.

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.

The company is taking this step to fulfil another prerequisite for profitable growth, as well as driving 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.

“Fagus-GreCon has managed to successfully overcome new challenges on numerous occasions during its history, which goes back more than a hundred years,” said Kuppe.

“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.”

With a degree in mechanical engineering, focused on process engineering, and with part-time Bachelors in business administration, Kuppe started his career in the marketing of machinery and systems 25 years ago.

Since then he has held management positions in the areas of marketing, sales, service and international business development in global medium-sized companies.

“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,” emphasised Uwe Kahmann.
