On December 31, 2022, Bodo Bölzle will retire after more than 25 years as CEO of the Amann Group. After his retirement, he will still be available to the company with his experience on the advisory board. During his time as Chief Executive officer (CEO), Bölzle has transformed the Amann & Söhne GmbH & Co. KG, Bönnigheim/Germany, from a European company into a global player and market leader with plants in Germany, the UK, the Czech Republic, Romania, China, Bangladesh, Vietnam and soon India. He also served as President of the Südwesttextil e.V. Association, Stuttgart/Germany, and established a milestone in textiles training with the construction of Texoversum at the Reutlingen University of Applied Sciences, Reutlingen/Germany.
The new management team of the Amann Group is now complete: In addition to Wolfgang Findeis Chief Financial Officer(CFO) and Peter Morgalla Chief Operating Officer(COO), Ivo Herzog as Chief Sustainability & Innovation Officer (CSIO) and Arved Westerkamp as Chief Sales Officer (CSO) will be shaping the future of the manufacturer of high-quality industrial sewing threads, embroidery threads and smart yarns.
With the creation of the Sustainability & Innovation Department, which is managed by Herzog from the new management team, the company is now resolutely taking its next step on the path to a holistically sustainable direction in its business model as the basis for future economic success.
Amann is continuing to grow with the construction of a factory in India. By the summer of 2023, all construction and plant installations will be complete, while the first deliveries of industrial sewing threads to customers will commence in the third quarter (Q3) of 2023. The commissioning of the production facility in Ranipet/India, marks a further milestone in the rapid development the Amann Group has enjoyed since 2010, with the opening of the then first Asian production plant in Yancheng/China.
When production starts in Ranipet in Q3/2023, photovoltaics will cover 100% of electricity requirements. This ultra-modern site will be equipped with a zero liquid discharge wastewater treatment plant, which allows the wastewater from the dyeing process to be reused as much as possible. What is left over is a new raw material – a saline sediment that can be reused in the chemical industry.
