Frank Donsbach joins Managing Board at schwartz

As of 1 July 2017, Frank Donsbach, Dipl.-Ing., has been appointed General Manager of Sales and Technology at schwartz GmbH, a leading provider of heat treatment equipment for press hardening lines. Frank Donsbach (52) had previously been employed at Otto Junker GmbH, heading their Induction Melting Equipment Division since 2001 and additionally serving as Chief Operating Officer (COO) since 2012.

With Frank Donsbach's appointment, schwartz expands its senior leadership team. Alexander Wilden, Dipl. Kfm., Dipl.-Wi.Jur., formerly the company's sole Managing Director, cedes his previous responsibility for the fields of sales and technology to Mr. Donsbach but remains Commercial Director and continues to oversee the operations of the company's subsidiaries, schwartz HTS (China) and schwartz, Inc. (USA). Moreover, Mr. Wilden will act as Chairman of the new Managing Board.

“Strong growth of the schwartz Group over the last four years had created the need to share tasks and burdens – putting more shoulders to the wheel, as it were. I am very happy we managed to convince Mr. Donsbach to join us. With his many years of experience and extensive know-how in industrial furnace manufacturing he will be key to the expansion of our existing market position in the press-hardening segment as well as to the development of new business fields.”
