Change in management within Topwerk Group

The Topwerk Group, a world-wide leading supplier of machinery and equipment for shaping and finishing of concrete products, announces changes in management of individual subsidiary companies. Richard Scheuerlein and Georg Prinzing, the main initiators of the Topwerk company group and, so far, general managers of SR Schindler GmbH and Prinzing-Pfeiffer GmbH, respectively, have withdrawn from the management by mutual agreement and will continue to be available to the company in an advisory capacity with the focus on sales and marketing.

“In the future, I would like to concentrate on the support of our customers as well as the further development of our very efficient system solutions and, therefore, I have decided to withdraw from the operational management,” Scheuerlein says. Prinzing adds, “We have the widest range of products all over the world, offering maximum customer benefit. I would like to drive this forward and convey it to the customers, in future too.” Scheuerlein and Prinzing will remain shareholders of ­Top-Werk GmbH.

Arns, Rauter and Lanik take over leadership

Olaf Arns, former head of business development at the Topwerk Group, takes over the management of SR Schindler GmbH in Regensburg with immediate effect. Oliver Rauter, so far responsible for business planning at the subsidiary Hess Group GmbH, immediately assumes responsibility as general manager of Prinzing-Pfeifer GmbH in Blaubeuren.

Michael Lanik, CEO of the Topwerk holding, emphasized the strong operational achievements of the two initiators, Scheuerlein and Prinzing, who are shareholders of Top-Werk GmbH together with the CGS investment company, stating: “We will gladly continue to take advantage of the comprehensive technical knowledge of the two men as well as their excellent customer relationship characterized by enormous trust, so as to push the growth of the group forward in future.”
