Change in the management of FLT

As of 01 September 2021, Stefan Christ (39) is the new Head of the Automation Business Unit and Managing Director of FIBRO LÄPPLE TECHNOLOGY GmbH (FLT). As part of a long-term planned age succession, he thus succeeds Guido Setzkorn (63), who is resigning from his position as Managing Director of FLT and leaving the LÄPPLE Group.

"We sincerely thank Mr. Setzkorn for his commitment as Managing Director of FLT and wish him all the very best for the next stage of his life," comments Klemens Schmiederer, Speaker of the Board of LÄPPLE AG. "At the same time, we are pleased that with Mr. Christ as his successor we were able to win an experienced manager with distinctive knowledge in the field of special plant engineering. We welcome him to our group of companies and are sure that he will bring a lot of expertise to our automation division through his national and international experience."

Mr. Christ has many years of professional experience in plant engineering with an internationally operating system supplier and brings essential competence in the areas of sales and in the management of a global business unit. In his function as Managing Director of FLT, he can thus provide new momentum for the sustainable further development and international growth of FLT.
