Effective Dec. 1, 2017, Christian Wagner, previously Chairman responsible for technology, is in charge of MHT as sole member of the Management Board and leads the corporate group as Chief Executive Officer. With this change in management, the company is concluding a strategic realignment that aims at an even stronger concentration on technical competence and innovative strength.
As a certified mechanical engineer (Dipl.-Ing.), Christian Wagner (46) has been working with MHT since the company was founded in 1996. He was responsible for the entire tool development sector as well as all patent-related matters and has been heading the MHT subsidiary in the US. In this capacity, he gathered extensive experience in the area of technical sales. Under his leadership, MHT aims to increasingly benefit from international market opportunities and consistently drive the company's own growth.
Cooling dictates the cycle time – and when it comes to PET preforms, which are manufactured by the billions, every tenth of a second counts. MHT Mold & Hotrunner Technology AG (MHT) in Hochheim / Main supplies molds with up to 192 cavities, including the accompanying post mold cooling unit that is frequently faster than the original, for all current PET-systems.
Our new contact persons for the Latin America and Eastern Europe sales regions: Many MHT customers will remember Andreas Krampe (left) from his first position as Director of Projects North America (2010 – 2015). With his comprehensive technical knowledge and fluent command of the Spanish language, he is now supervising all projects in Latin America.
Nikos Tzouridis can look back on many years of experience in sales and project planning at leading providers in the PET-area and the beverage packaging industry. As a certified machine technician and management expert, he will now make his expertise available to customers in Eastern Europe and the Baltic states.
Do you have an idea for a new bottle design? We will support you with the matching preform. We will create a double-prototype tool in only two to three weeks. The preform samples manufactured by this tool will give you an opportunity to obtain important information about the remainder of the process.
