Kaimann expands its management team
In order to position itself right at the top of the international elastomeric insulation materials market, Kaimann GmbH has taken early steps over the past years to achieve the highest levels of productivity and efficiency. In order to further support its growth, the insulation specialist is currently expanding its management team with a further specialist. Andreas Huhn is starting on 1 September 2017 as the new Chief Operating Officer (COO). He and Jürgen Kranke, who as Chief Technology Officer (CTO) will be responsible in the Executive Management for technical and chemical process development as well as the company's process technology, will form an experienced team: each skilled member ideally complementing the other, improving process efficiency and bringing lean production proactively forward.
With Andreas Huhn, Kaimann is reinforcing its Executive Management team with a multi-faceted production professional. The experienced mechanical engineer and process technician was previously employed at one of the leading companies in the field of plumbing and heating technology with an annual turnover of € 1.4 billion, 4,200 employees worldwide and 17,000 items in its portfolio. As plant manager, he was responsible for the drainage and pre-wall technology division for ten successful years.
“I am very pleased to have acquired a highly respected veteran and expert on system-assisted production planning and automation of production runs, as well as a proven SAP expert, for the Kaimann management team,” says CEO and owner Georg Josef (Jürgen) Kaimann. “I am very confident that alongside Jürgen Kranke, he will significantly increase our productivity, efficiency and delivery reliability. This renewed expansion of our management team is a further necessary step in order to manage the individual areas of our company in a targeted manner and proactively continue on our successful path.”
