Geppert-Band, a Dorner Holding Company, and leading European manufacturer of belt and modular belt conveyors, has added Sven Fitschen to its management team.
Fitschen has been appointed Managing Director of Operations. Fitschen replaces longtime President Thomas Blesinger who retired in November. Fitschen brings a strong European operation and material handling background to Geppert-Band, having previously worked at DB Santaslao Gears and Getriebebau.
“I’m thrilled to join Geppert-Band and the Dorner Holding family of companies,” Fitschen said. “I look forward to working with the Geppert-Band team to grow and support the European market for all Dorner Holding Company brands.”
In December 2015, Dorner Holding Company acquired Malaysian-based FlexMove, a leading manufacturer of flexible chain conveyors for food, beverage, automotive, electronics and other industries; Dorner Holding Company acquired Geppert-Band in May 2016.
