European growth prompts management reorganization
Ratingen, Germany, May 2015 - In February 2015, Jan Treede took over the post of Managing Director Germany at KOLLMORGEN, newly created by the leading servo drive technology and motion control provider in light of the continued growth of its European operations in recent years. Up until now, KOLLMORGEN Germany as well as all European subsidiaries were managed by Dennis Gallagher, Vice President Europe. The growing number of subsidiaries in different European countries prompted the strategic organizational change.
Based in Ratingen, Jan Treede will further promote drive and automation solutions especially for the packaging, food, drinks, and pharmaceutical industries. KOLLMORGEN has in recent years become a successful specialist solution provider for high-hygiene applications. Before joining the company, Treede worked in exactly this field for Danfoss, Elau, and other companies.
As Managing Director Germany, Treede also supervises the European distribution partners. He reports directly to Dennis Gallagher who will concentrate on European markets and the management of subsidiaries in other European countries.
