Effective April 1st, 2020, Mr. Heinrich Nieder was appointed the new managing director of PEC Europe GmbH. He takes over this function from Mr. Arne Echterbruch, who has been temporarily responsible for the management and successfully developed the company during this time. As planned, Mr. Echterbruch is returning to the south of Germany for personal reasons and will be responsible for the Business Development division of PEC Europe in the future.
Mr. Heinz Nieder was already responsible for PEC Europe GmbH, Duisburg, as Operation Manager from 2015 to 2018. In the course of the integration of PEC Europe GmbH into Hilti AG, he moved to China as Plant Manager for the production facility in Suzhou, which was taken over from Hilti AG. During the two years there, he was responsible for the move to a new plant with a modern production facility for cast-in products and successfully installed a new ERP system.
With his many years of experience as plant manager at the Halfen company, Mr. Nieder has the ideal prerequisites to continue to successfully manage PEC Europe GmbH together with Hilti AG in the future.
For our customers nothing will change in the daily cooperation, as the business relations with the employees you know will continue as before.
