New Managing Director
Dirk Wachsmuth to become CEO
The management of vombaur was restructured as of 1 May 2021: Dipl.-Ing. Dirk Wachsmuth will be responsible for sales, marketing and development as the new Managing Director. The previous Managing Director Peter vom Baur will retain responsibility for vombaur after almost 30 years as a shareholder of the parent company Textation Group.
His successor as CEO Dirk Wachsmuth is an experienced and proven expert in the industry. After studying mechanical engineering, he worked for many years first for a filter manufacturer, then in the plastics industry. Together with Andreas Kielholz and Christoph Schliefer, he now heads vombaur GmbH & Co. KG.
Peter vom Baur is handing over a dynamic, future-oriented company to the new management: "vombaur is in excellent shape, has come through the crisis year of 2020 on a solid footing and is positioned for the future. Currently, the company is investing a double-digit million amount in a state-of-the-art headquarters, which will be inaugurated in 2023. As part of the Textation Group, the strength and culture of a family-run company is also being retained. "Three things were close to my heart when handing over the company: I wanted to hand over a healthy company that offers employees and customers security. I wanted to help shape its future. That's why it was important to me that not the new building itself, but the concrete plans for the new headquarters are in place and the contracts are signed and sealed. And thirdly, I wanted to complete the handover around my 60th birthday," explains Peter vom Baur. "I am very pleased that this has now happened – and I am looking forward to continuing to accompany the future developments of this company, which is as rich in history as it is viable for the future, as a shareholder."
