Jörg Westphal has joined the management team of BST eltromat taking responsibility for the fields of service, sales and marketing.
Westphal has many years of experience in the management of small and medium-sized companies and their international sales organizations. Most recently, he was a member of the management team at EAE Engineering Automation Electronics in Ahrensburg near Hamburg. He joined BST eltromat in July 2019 as a manager of service, as a new managing director, he will also take responsibility for sales and marketing at the group.
‘Over several decades, BST eltromat has earned an outstanding reputation as a leading supplier of first-class quality assurance systems in the printing, packaging, plastics and nonwoven industries,’ commented Jörg Westphal. ‘Furthermore, with its very efficient global sales and service network, and its production sites on other continents for the markets there, it is well positioned internationally. Both of these aspects provide a solid basis for successes in other sectors with web-processing production methods, and I intend to pursue those.’
‘At the moment, for example, that goes for the battery industry, which holds its processes to very high standards with regard to their quality, reliability and connectedness. With our broad-based knowledge and our wide-ranging field experience, we want to become the preferred partner for the equipment makers in that sector too, in all aspects of quality assurance, added Westphal. ‘We’re going to make use of our comprehensive, practical expertise, move into other sectors through diversification, and in the process tap into new markets for the future. At the same time, we want to protect our leading position in our core markets and build on it. In the process, we’ll bring in specific industry partners in order to round out our portfolio and generate added value for our customers.’
Westphal will manage the businesses of the BST Group together with Dr Jürgen Dillmann, who has been responsible for the company's technology field since June 1, 2018. Kristian Jünke, who has managed the business together will Dillmann in recent years, is leaving the group.
