01/02/2022 – Frank Weidenmüller succeeds Horst Schneidereit

New commercial managing director at Witels-Albert

The specialists for the development and manufacture of products for guiding, straightening and transporting long goods place the development and expansion of the company in the hands of Frank Weidenmüller (49). He succeeds Horst Schneidereit (66), who has been a guarantor of economic success without exception for a good 40 years.

As an economic engineer with expertise in commercial and technical aspects, he initially accompanied President Eckehard Albert for more than 15 years. With the entry of Marcus Paech (55), responsible for technology and sales, into the company 25 years ago, a team is formed that, favoured by differences in personal characters, stands for a solid and progressive strategy and development. With the impulses of both managing directors, the Witels-Albert GmbH expands its leading position in the segment.

At present, Horst Schneidereit is familiarising his successor Frank Weidenmüller with all the issues that affect the company's finances and production in particular. After that he will leave for his well-deserved retirement. The employees of Witels-Albert would like to thank Horst Schneidereit, combined with best wishes for the new phase of his life in stable health.

"Mr. Weidenmüller inspires with his incomparable CV, his analytical skills and actions adapted to them, competences in commercial and technical categories plus a level-headed and engaging management style that promises to stay the course even under challenging boundary conditions," says Marcus Paech, who as an enthusiastic motorcyclist shares his hobby with Frank Weidenmüller.

The chemistry, which is considered the basis of life, is just right in Berlin! This also pleases the Wafios AG as the owner of the company, which continues to provide perfect conditions. In association with Wafios, the new management of Witels-Albert as of 1. July 2022 strives for top performance in terms of products and services. The company is using the „wire 2022“ as the wire industry’s performance show to present the latest developments and also its new commercial managing director Frank Weidenmüller.
