Hönle appoints new leadership team for curing business unit

The new management team aims to advance the curing business unit of Hönle.

Hönle has completed its management team with expert appointments for the newly established curing business unit.  

Since February 2024, Dr Tim Rüttermann has been the vice president of BU curing. Dr. Rüttermann, who holds a PhD in Physics, has held leadership positions in various internationally operating technology companies. Most recently, he worked as senior vice president of the polymer division and as SVP Transformation at EOS, the world's leading provider of 3D printers. 

‘Hönle operates in many different markets and in numerous applications with significant growth potential. For our customers, we develop pioneering technological solutions and manufacture the critical components predominantly in-house in Germany,’ said Rüttermann. ‘I am excited to lead the Hönle business unit curing in this dynamic environment.’ 

Hönle has also recruited Volker Selg, a true specialist in UV curing for printing and coating processes, who previously worked at IST Metz for almost 35 years, most recently as head of sales converting and print web.  

‘My priority has always been to provide the perfect solution for the customer's application. At Hönle, I have the opportunity to implement this across various printing processes. It's an exciting task,’ said Selg. In the future, he will coordinate the individual units of BU curing, which, in addition to Hönle, also includes the printing and coating experts Eltosch Grafix, PrintConcept, and GEPA Coating Solutions. 

Together with the long-time Hönle head of sales Dieter Stirner, the new management team aims to advance the business unit curing of Hönle.  

‘Hönle has been a well-established supplier of UV systems for years and is a recognized development partner in the printing and coating industry. We have often been trendsetters for new technologies, especially when it comes to LED-UV,’ emphasized Rüttermann. The new structure aims to strengthen this innovative capability and elevate the global service to a new level.
