After 17 years at the helm of Alfeld-based company Fagus-GreCon, Uwe Kahmann will step down as managing director on 30 Jun 2024 by mutual agreement with the shareholders.

Over the 17 years, Kahmann has contributed to the company’s development and almost tripled its turnover. Under his leadership, the company has reportedly become much more international while strengthening its market leadership in its core fire prevention and measuring technology businesses.

With his trustworthy and cooperative personality, he has played a role in shaping Fagus-GreCon’s corporate culture. He has driven the introduction of technical innovations to international markets in recent years and actively supported several restructuring measures, putting Fagus-GreCon in a position to pursue its growth plans.

“I would like to thank the shareholders for the trust and support they have shown me, [as well as] the more than 700 employees worldwide for their committed, team-orientated cooperation,” Kahmann said. “It has been an honour and a pleasure to lead Fagus-GreCon through challenging but mostly aspiring times over the past 17 years.”

Shareholder Ernst Greten added, “We are delighted that we have found an arrangement with [Kahmann] where he will continue to be available in an advisory capacity if required.”

From 1 Jul 2024, Fagus-GreCon will return to a two-person management team of Alexander Kuppe and Mario Haas. The expansion of the first and second management levels will also support strategic expansion, further internationalisation, and strengthening of other application areas.
