Tsubaki Kabelschlepp Focus on continuity
A change in management: Tsubaki appoints the experience manager Henning Preis as the new managing director of Tsubaki Kabelschlepp GmbH and Kabelschlepp GmbH-Hünsborn.
On July 1, Henning Preis took over as president & CEO of Tsubaki Kabelschlepp GmbH and Kabelschlepp GmbH-Hünsborn. At the same time, Michael Diebel was appointed COO of Kabelschlepp GmbH-Hünsborn. Kevin Powers, the previous managing director, moves to the board of the traditional medium-sized company and will also be taking on more tasks within the US Tsubaki Holding.
With the new members of the management, Tsubaki as the holding company and Kabelschlepp are focusing on continuity in the management of the globally active company. The two managers, who reported to Kevin Powers until the end of June, had each already been responsible for the business areas of Cable Carriers and CAPS (Conveyor & Protection Systems).
Henning Preis has been with the German company for a good three years already. The business graduate previously held different management positions within the SMS Group, including 5 years in Brazil. “We have Kevin Powers to thank for the positive development of Kabelschlepp in recent years – he managed the company with prudence and vision. It is now important that we do not rest on our achievements, but continue to expand our good market position. We place a special focus on the automotive sector, the project business and our complete systems. In order to achieve our ambitious targets, we will make further strong investments in the infrastructure at the Gerlingen production site.”
His counterpart Dipl.-Ing. Michael Diebel moved to Kabelschlepp from a managing position with world market leader Rittal in 2007. Since then, he has been responsible worldwide for the CAPS business area, which he now still heads up as managing director and COO of Kabelschlepp GmbH-Hünsborn. “CAPS is international market leader for conveyor systems in the field of sheet metal processing and will continue to expand this position globally,” says Michael Diebel. As a solution provider for conveyor systems and guideway protection on machine tools, CAPS supplied OEMs as well as direct customers. “The global presence of Kabelschlepp with a focus on Europe and Asia is a particular strength. As a member of the Tsubaki Group, globally active customers can be supplied from local production in all worldwide relevant industrial regions,” concludes Diebel.
