In his new responsibility for the Technology Division on the Saarstahl Board of Management and in the management of SHS – Stahl-Holding-Saar (SHS), Klaus Richter is also entrusted with the central task of systematically integrating the two acquired French plants – Saarstahl Rail and Saarstahl Ascoval – into the Saarstahl Group in line with the corporate strategy. This means in particular increasing the production of steel with a carbon-neutral footprint and consequently extending it to Saarstahl’s product portfolio, as well as advancing the ecological mobility transformation through the production of quality rails.
Given the additional areas of responsibility of Dr. Richter at Saarstahl Rail and Saarstahl Ascoval, the Chairman of the Board of Management of Dillinger and Saarstahl, Dr. Karl-Ulrich Köhler, intends to maintain responsibility for the time being for the Technology Division at Dillinger. As was announced in May, Tom Niemann (46) will take over the Sales Division on the Saarstahl Board of Management with effect from 1 October and will join the management of SHS.
