March 24, 2014 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Markus Sandhöfner is the new general manager of B&R Germany.
Sandhöfner – a specialist in the field of automation engineering – took over from Frank Winter at the beginning of this year. Winter, who led the company in Germany with great success since its founding in 1983, will continue to assist B&R in an advisory capacity.
Sandhöfner has held various positions at B&R over the past 13 years and has been part of the B&R Germany management team since 2010. He has 20 years of experience in the area of machine manufacturing.
“Together with our customers, we want to further increase our strength in the market,” said Sandhöfner, defining B&R Germany’s primary goal for the coming years.
Working closely with customers and offering an extensive range of services will also remain central elements, he said.
“With many new products and innovations, we will be able to further increase our customers’ competitive edge.”
