– Packaging machine specialist Hugo Beck has appointed Timo Kollmann as managing director, following the retirement of company owner Dieter Beck as managing director after almost 30 years’ service.
Timo Kollmann joins Curt-Juergen Raiser as co-managing director to form the company’s senior management. Further, Simon Beck, a member of the founding family now in its third generation, joins the restructured management team and adds to his duties as production manager, by becoming an authorised signatory for the business.
Having extensive management experience within the business as international sales director, Timo Kollmann has already significantly shaped and driven forward the strategic direction of Hugo Beck within the horizontal packaging sector. The organisational changes associated with the restructured management are now setting the course for the company’s stable and sustained development over the coming years.
Commenting on his appointment Timo said, “As a specialist for customised horizontal film packaging machines, Hugo Beck is now widely recognised in many industries for the high quality of our flowpack, bag and shrink packaging solutions, and our new management team will work tirelessly to continue to deliver on the decades of excellent leadership provided by Dieter.
“I am now looking forward immensely to building on this platform and leading Hugo Beck in its next chapter of growth as we focus on expanding our technological expertise in paper packaging solutions and the opportunities provided by automation technology.
“Despite the difficulties of the current economic climate, I see the broadening of Hugo Beck’s international market presence as a vital cornerstone to our future and regard this as a key personal challenge and priority to delivering our corporate goals.”
