As the works manager, he will take over the operative management of the business and ensure its continued economic success. His predecessor, Joachim Ramrath, retired in December 2014. Böhnke + Partner Steuerungssysteme GmbH, based in Bergisch Gladbach, Germany, develops, designs and produces components, controllers and remote diagnostics systems for the lift industry and is among the leading providers in the sector.
Uwe Wiemer has been working in various management positions within the Schmersal Group for around 15 years, including managing the Product Management, Export and Application Centre departments. In 2012, he took over the management of the "tec.nicum" training centre and was responsible for the knowledge management within the Schmersal Group. At the same time, Uwe Wiemer also took over responsibility for the "Strategic Market Development" in the sales division.
Uwe Wiemer has extensive management experience and has successfully built up various business areas within the Schmersal Group.
"In recent years, Böhnke & Partner has developed into a leading manufacturer of lift systems with a good reputation in the market and excellent levels of customer acceptance," explains Uwe Wiemer. "The aim is now to reinforce this position by pressing ahead with the integration of Böhnke + Partner into the Schmersal Group. We want to leverage synergies, partly by further expanding sales activities using Schmersal's global sales network. We are targeting further growth - which is why I am looking forward to opening our new administration and production building in Obereschbach, Bergisch-Gladbach, in the near future. It covers the future demand for production space, provides room for long-term growth in employee numbers and enables improvement in material flow and logistics processing."
