Wolfertschwenden, 1 August 2019 – With effect from 1 August 2019, MULTIVAC is entrusting the management of the recently acquired FRITSCH Group to two experienced executives, Andreas Eyd and Frank Gabriel. With this move MULTIVAC is setting a course for the positive and sustainable business development of this leading manufacturer of bakery equipment - as well as rapidly driving forward its integration into the MULTIVAC Group.
Andreas Eyd will be responsible for the sales management of the company, while Frank Gabriel will be responsible for its technical leadership. Together with the existing managers, the new management duo will direct and develop the FRITSCH Group as a stand-alone business.
Before he arrived at MULTIVAC, Andreas Eyd worked in various management functions, including CEO, within the printing industry and refrigeration sector. Since July 2017 he has occupied the position of Vice President of Sales & Operations for Central Europe, Africa and the Middle East as well as for Australia and New Zealand. He will continue until further notice in this position in addition to taking up his new duties.
Frank Gabriel has been at MULTIVAC since September 2011, most recently as CEO of MULTIVAC's Spanish production company. Prior to this he was responsible for international production projects at the packaging machine manufacturer's Group headquarters.
Frank Gabriel's successor in Spain, Txus Baquero, takes up his new position on 1 August 2019 and, since he has been Production Manager at MULTIVAC Spain since 2011, he is already well-rooted in this branch of the company. He is the first Spanish CEO, whom MULTIVAC has appointed for its subsidiary in Spain.
Both Andreas Eyd and Frank Gabriel see great potential in the takeover of the FRITSCH Group. “We are convinced that, together with the experienced management team at FRITSCH, we can continue to expand the business and develop it sustainably.” For both of them the name of this traditional company, which has been in existence for almost 100 years, stands for experience and success in the bakery equipment sector. “This continuity offers a solid foundation for long-term growth within the powerful MULTIVAC Group.”
