Since May 2015, Alfred Rochlus has become co-partner of Assyx GmbH & Co. KG. Taking this step, the company honored the achievement of Rochlus, who has already been supporting Assyx since the planning phase, managing the operational business since 2007. In the last few years, he successfully expanded sales and distributions as well as the international business.
Rochlus is graduate engineer (Dipl.-Ing.) in electrical engineering. Before joining Assyx, he was head of several technology cen-ters in the German Federal State of Rhineland Palatinate for more than 14 years.
Rochlus and Manfred Kessler, the founding partners of Assyx GmbH & Co. KG, are the exclusive shareholders and are also managing the company. With the participation of Rochlus, the company believes that it is securely positioned for future developments. Kessler pointed out in a conversation with the trade magazine, BFT International, that the expansion of the shareholder structure does not involve any strategic change.
At the production site in Andernach am Rhein, Assyx is manufacturing the Duroboard production board. The board consists of a core of laminated long-fiber pinewood. The laminated layers guarantee a high level of bend and warp resistance as well as an optimum vibration transfer, according to information given by the manufacturer. The core is covered with a coat of polyurethane plastics. Thanks to the coat, the boards are durable, have a smooth surface and the wood does not swell. The coating is moreover resistant to oil, enabling the use of release agents. The Duroboard production boards are used at concrete block factories all over the world.
