Dr Jürgen Dillmann was appointed managing director of BST eltromat International GmbH (Bielefeld, Germany) on 1 June 2018 and is responsible for the Technology Division. The mechanical engineer succeeds Dr Johann-Carsten Kipp, who retired at the end of August. Over the decades, Dillmann has acquired extensive practical know-how in various functions in the design, development and production of several medium-sized companies in the capital goods industry and, as managing director, has been responsible for the companies for a long time. Until joining BST eltromat, Dillmann was responsible for worldwide operations at Endress+Hauser SE in Maulburg, a leading manufacturer of measuring instruments for the process industry, as a member of the management board.

The technical managing director sees many exciting challenges in his new area of responsibility. "We will intensively deal with the question of how to shape the transformation of the industry into the digital age and how to accompany our customers. We will align and strengthen the worldwide organisation of BST eltromat to support our globally active partners. They expect further innovations, support and advice from us in optimising their own processes so that they remain competitive in their own markets," explains Dillmann.

To this end, the mechanical engineering expert intends to align the company's product portfolio more closely to the different requirements of global markets and develop solutions for customers that are tailored to the different requirements of the respective markets.

The further development of the existing portfolio is a focal point of his work at BST eltromat: "The design of our product portfolio - also on the basis of the findings of our innovation management and identified future market requirements - opens up a wide range of potential for us to supply customers with groundbreaking new solutions for quality assurance and thus secure their economic success. Our range of products extends from innovative components and systems to comprehensive automation solutions.”
