AMSilk GmbH, that produces and distributes increasing volumes of high-quality silk biopolymers for use in textile products, medical devices, and cosmetics, headquartered in Planegg near Munich, Germany, has announced the expansion of its business development unit with the appointment of Dr. Volker Wagner-Solbach as the procurement and supply chain manager.

Volker Wagner-Solbach is responsible for the procurement and the smooth supply chain process to make sure that the increasing demand of silk biopolymers, and especially the Biosteel fibres can be met by AMSilk’s external production partners.

With Dr. Wagner-Solbach, AMSilk GmbH gains an experienced and well-connected expert, who has been working in the chemical and textile industry for 20 years, with a focus on international trade and innovations. Wagner-Solbach received his chemistry degree at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich and then wrote his dissertation at the TU Munich. Over the past years, he has been able to attract a large number of partners for AVA-CO2 Schweiz AG and its subsidiary AVALON Industries AG and their first large-scale production plant for 5-HMF/FDCA worldwide.

Wagner-Solbach said, “I have been in contact with AMSilk since 2011. Silk is a fantastic product and the innovative biotechnological manufacturing process of AMSilk is the best chemistry can do today. The realisation of the company aims regarding the production of silk biopolymers on an industrial scale is a very exciting challenge for me.”

Jens Klein, CEO of AMSilk said, “With Dr. Wagner-Solbach, we gained an experienced and competent business development expert. With his many years of experience regarding the setting-up and optimisation of supply chains, he will further advance the expansion of the production of our premium performance products.” (GK)
