With effect from 1 Mar 2023, Wolfgang Lashofer was appointed as the new managing director of Dieffenbacher Energy, which was formed at the beginning of the year from the acquisition of BERTSCHenergy, based in Bludenz, western Austria.

As the new managing director of Dieffenbacher Energy, Wolfgang Lashofer thus also takes over the management of the newly established Energy Business Unit at Dieffenbacher.

Lashofer previously worked for the Austrian Andritz Group for more than 35 years. As senior vice-president and global division manager, his most recent responsibilities there included recovered paper treatment, medium-density fibreboard (MDF) and recycling.

“I very much look forward to the tasks ahead of me and, above all, to work with the highly motivated team at Dieffenbacher Energy,” said Lashofer. “The employees are absolute experts in their field and have a track record for creating products and technologies that enjoy an excellent reputation in the market. That is a great basis for a successful future.”

“The fact that we have won over such an experienced management personality like Mr Lashofer gives Dieffenbacher Energy further tailwind,” said Volker Kitzelmann, CFO of Dieffenbacher. “We have created the best conditions for a successful start to our youngest subsidiary.”
