Robert Bürkle has divided its company into four independent divisions to better serve customers.

The German supplier provides laminating and coating technologies to the glass industry.

The company will have four independent business divisions to cover its respective product segments.

The new divisions will be managed by Marco Schaible (Printed Circuit Boards), Kai P. Treuner (Photovoltaics, Glass and Plastic Cards), Matthias Picker (Surface/Woodworking) and on an interim basis by Dr Arno Rogalla (Automation, Insulation, Doors, Parquet).

Jürgen Schröer, CEO of the Bürkle Group, said: "We are convinced that this model is more efficient and that the individual divisions will be able to react much faster and more targeted to individual customer requirements in the future.”

Mr Schröer has been supported by Martin Meister since the beginning of 2023, who, in addition to managing the commercial divisions, will also focus on the global development and digitalisation of the company.

Kai P. Treuner is responsible for the photovoltaics and technical glass division as well as for the plastic card division. Through his previous activities in other companies, Treuner brings many years of experience, especially in the field of glass and photovoltaic applications.

In the coming years, each division is to develop independently with different focal points in terms of the range of services, the product range and the global positioning to optimally serve the markets and the customers.
