New Management at VULKAN

The Herne-based company VULKAN Kupplungs- und Getriebebau Bernhard Hackforth GmbH & Co. KG announced it has been under new management since March 2016.
Under the new management scheme, Dr. Achim Brodde and Dipl. Ing. Dieter Klitzke will work together to steer the fortunes of the global coupling manufacturer. Dr. Brodde, who has also been Managing Director of VULKAN Lokring Rohrverbindungen since 2007, is taking on responsibility for the fields of Production, Quality Management and Engineering & Application. Klitzke will head up the business area VULKAN Couplings and is therefore also responsible for global sales activities in the field of maritime drive technology and energy generation.
The new management duo is replacing Dr. Andreas Boehme, who left the VULKAN in early March after working for the company for 10 years. 
Dipl. Ing. Thomas Fuhrmann will also be joining the management team on April 1, 2016 to expand industrial applications in the business area Drive Tech.
