CEO Hans-Georg Werner said: “We have emerged from last year’s restructure a more efficient and resilient company and Dirk and Roger will have a pivotal role to play in maximising the benefits of the changes we have introduced.

“I took on the additional roles of head of production and head of sales during the restructure, which was a very difficult time for the business.

“However, we have now stabilised our operations and customer confidence is returning, so now is the ideal time to hand over the reins.”
