Continuity needs change

Everything has its time
Since there is no company succession from my own family, I decided to sell W.AG Funktion + Design to a long-term orientated investor one year ago.
Now, on 31st March, 2015 I am going to hand over the management of the company to my qualified successors. Therefore, I will retire from the operational responsibility.
I am proud of having built up a competent company for plastic cases over the last 23 years. My special thanks go to the hard-working staff, the trustful customers, the partner-like suppliers, the attending service providers and my appreciative family.
The company‘s growth and perspective require the highest attention in all areas for satisfying the customer demands with even better innovations, an optimal organisation and highest quality in future. Hence, my succession will be split up between two competent young managers, divided into the technical and commercial area, on 1st April, 2015.
Mr. Konrad Goldbach will be responsible for the commercial area, including Sales and Marketing. With a second degree temporary interruption Mr. Goldbach has been active for 10 years in a responsible position within the company. On account of this he knows the structure, processes and market demands very well.
Mr. Michael Buitmann will take over responsibility for the whole technical area, including product development and toolmaking as well as all areas of Production and Logistics. Mr. Buitmann has been an executive employee for 2 ½ years and is an experienced production expert.
Both gentlemen have my full confidence and will receive support by a competent owners‘ advisory board. Market compliant innovations and closeness to customers will stay in focus. I will continue to be personally available for advice in future as well.
Dear business partners and employees, please place the same trust in W.AG Funktion + Design GmbH in future. Due to target-orientated innovations and consequent market postitioning the company developed power and strength from which another firework of innovations will be created. These customer-orientated innovations and all participants will shape the future.
With great confidence I will look at the exciting future of the company.
With best wishes
