Multivac has announced Andreas Eyd and Frank Gabriel will take over the operations of its newly-acquired Fritsch Group as of August 1. Fritsch specializes in dough forming and bakery processing technology.

Eyd will be responsible for the sales management of the company, while Gabriel will be responsible for its technical leadership.

Standalone business

Together with the existing managers, the new management duo will direct and develop the Fritsch Group as a standalone business.

We are convinced, together with the experienced management team at Fritsch, we can continue to expand the business and develop it sustainably​,” Eyd and Gabriel said in a statement.

Eyd was previously VP sales and operations for Central Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Australia and New Zealand for Multivac and Gabriel was CEO of Multivac’s Spanish production company.

Prior to this, he was responsible for international production projects at the packaging machine manufacturer's group headquarters.

Gabriel's successor in Spain, Txus Baquero, takes up his new position on August 1, 2019, where he was currently production manager at Multivac Spain.

CEO to stand down

In other news, Multivac CEO Hans-Joachim Boekstegers announced he is standing down after 18 years with the company, handing over the business on January 1, 2020 to his director colleagues, Christian Traumann and Guido Spix.

Traumann will assume responsibility for sales and finance, while Spix will become responsible for technology and production.
