Jochen Adler will take over as head of the development division within the Oerlikon Manmade Fibers (MMF) segment, beginning January 1, 2017. Adler has headed up the Development Project Management at the manmade fibre systems market leader for the past 10 years. He succeeds Dr. Klaus Schäfer, who is finally retiring from the company as planned.

The machine construction graduate engineer (FH) has worked in various areas of research & development at Oerlikon Barmag, where he was most recently responsible for the development project management for the Oerlikon Barmag and Oerlikon Neumag brands.

CEO of the company, Georg Stausberg said, “As a result of his work as head of development project management, Jochen Adler is the natural successor to Dr. Schäfer. Dr. Schäfer has decisively shaped the company over his more than 30 years with Oerlikon. His development work has been decisive in establishing us as a technology leader within the market; something that we continue to benefit from.”

For over 30 years, Dr. Klaus Schäfer headed the development division at Oerlikon Barmag and Oerlikon Neumag. It was under his leadership that ground-breaking technologies as the EvoQuench radial quenching system, the WINGS winder for POY and FDY filaments and the Sytec One BCF system for polyester recycling applications were developed. The honorary IPA Kiev professor will remain a member of the board for the Barmag Brückner Engineering (BBE) joint venture in Remscheid. (GK)
