A new management trio combined with a whole range of new products and innovations — Emag is moving into the next few months with momentum, and can look back on a successful first half of the year with a very strong order intake.
Dr. Heinz-Jürgen Prokop is the new CEO of Emag. Dr. Prokop’s appointment brings extensive expertise to the company, as he has over 30 years of mechanical engineering experience under his belt as well as a lot of management experience from a range of different companies. In his most recent role, he was CEO Machine Tools and member of the Group Management Board at Trumpf. Before that, he held managing director roles at companies including Thyssen/Krupp in Essen, Germany, Fritz Studer in Steffisburg, Switzerland, and Frigoblock Grosskopf in Essen, Germany. The remaining positions in the Emag management remain unchanged: Dr. Mathias Klein has been the Chief Sales Officer (CSO) since May 2021, and Sven Hartwich has held the role of Chief Financial Officer (CFO) since January 2020.
The group recently presented the software at the AMB in Stuttgart in September — one of the most important metalworking trade fairs worldwide. During the fair, Emag presented four world-firsts while also scoring points with the associated automation solutions that have been distinguishing features of its machines for many years: The machines are self-loading and can be easily integrated into large production lines. By interlinking the individual machines, a component can run through various processing steps without any external intervention. Due to an increasing shortage of skills in the relevant sectors, it is becoming all the more important to have systems like this that work autonomously once set up.
Former CEO and shareholder Markus Heßbrüggen, who had been with the company since 1996, is following in his father’s footsteps and taking on the role of Chairman of the Advisory Board.
