New Top Management at Kjellberg Finsterwalde

Volker Krink and Dr. Jörg Eßmann form the new management of the Kjellberg Finsterwalde Plasma und Maschinen GmbH – the biggest member of the group of companies Kjellberg Finsterwalde which is run by a foundation. In their position as managing directors both are working on diverse topics that are currently important for the long-established brand: „At present, the biggest challenge for us is to steer the company with all its employees through the Corona crisis as unscathed as possible and to seize the opportunities which every crisis offers for the future.“ Dr. Eßmann knows this also thanks to his experiences as developer and project manager with the German Fraunhofer society and as production manager with an international high-technology company.


At present, the social, economic and technological situation is changing faster than ever. Volker Krink concludes: „We need to focus now on what we are particularly good at and what we have some influence upon. This includes mastering present development projects successfully and starting new ones in order to remain a strong factor in the market. “The current developments regarding Industry 4.0 are the key topic at the moment.


The employees are the foundation for future success –both managing directors agree on this. „I’m especially looking forward to the cooperation with the employees. From first discussions I know that we are open to change. This is the condition to continuously develop the product technology and organisation for our world-class products at the highest level“, confirms Dr. Jörg Eßmann.

The entire Kjellberg group wishes Volker Krink and Dr. Jörg Eßmann every success in dealing with their present and future tasks.
