New managing directors for Saarschmiede GmbH Freiformschmiede

13 December 2018

Dirk Böttcher and Jörg Disteldorf will join the Management Board of Saarschmiede GmbH Freiformschmiede effective 1 January 2019.

Dirk Böttcher will be responsible for Technology and Sales. He will be taking over from Martin Baues, who will resign his position on the Management Board during 2019 following a transition period. Dirk Böttcher, who holds graduate degrees in engineering and industrial engineering, was a member in recent years of the Executive Board of Grillo-Werke AG and Chairman of the Executive Board of Rheinzink GmbH & Co.KG.

Jörg Disteldorf, a graduate in business administration, is Head of Human Resources and Social Affairs at SHS, Dillinger and Saarstahl, and will now be responsible for Human Resources as Labor Director. He succeeds Peter Schweda, who has resigned his mandate as Managing Director and Labor Director of Saarschmiede.

The Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Reinhard Störmer, thanks the previous Managing Directors for their successful efforts with Saarschmiede: “Mr. Baues and Mr. Schweda have intensively and personally supported the necessary reorganization phase over the past three years. In addition, they successfully got the strategic realignment off the ground, in particular by taking on future-oriented new business areas such as tool steel. The Supervisory Board thanks both of these men for their outstanding work. At the same time, with Dirk Böttcher and Jörg Disteldorf, we have been able to gain two experienced and committed managers who will continue to secure the future of Saarschmiede.”
