The French Textile Equipment manufacturers’ Association (UCMTF), has selected Hugues Schellenberg as the new president, following the retirement of Bruno Ameline who has chaired the association since 2004. UCMTF comprises around 30 members companies. Some of them are world leaders in their markets while others are small and medium size companies.

Schellenberg is the CEO of Dollfus-Muller of Heimsbrunn in the French province of Alsace. An engineer, Schellenberg got an MBA from Montpellier University in Southern France. As president of UCMTF, Schellenberg will represent the French association on the board of Cematex, the owner of ITMAs.

As CEO of Dollfus-Muller, Schellenberg spends at least half of his time with customers that he visits worldwide. This is how he keeps a firsthand contact and a deep connection with the needs of the market in order to both manage his company on a day to day basis and design its long term strategy.

In addition to UCMTF, Schellenberg is very active in many national, regional and national associations, including the chairmanship of a trade association to improve the employment of underprivileged workers.

“It is a great honour but a stressing responsibility to become the UCMTF president in such an uncertain environment our companies have to face worldwide due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For the long run, I am very positive thanks to our state-of-the-art equipment, our services which are up to the best standards, our teams which are so professionals and motivated but right now our business is on a bumpy road,” Schellenberg said.
