New management team for PCI Augsburg GmbH

PCI Augsburg GmbH has started 2017 with a new management team. Udo Weimer (54) has been appointed Managing Director, Sales for Germany, Austria and BeNeLux. He succeeds Manfred Grundmann, who is taking his scheduled retirement on handing over to his successor. Frank Rösiger (46) was appointed Managing Director, Technical, with effect from 1 November 2016 and is also responsible for Product Development, Supply Chain and Production. The Chairman of the PCI Management Board is Marc C. Köppe (40), who is also responsible for Marketing, Human Resources, Accounting and Controlling as well as Purchasing. In addition, the business management of flooring technology activities under the Thomsit brand reports to him.

For the construction chemicals specialist, this step and the distribution of responsibilities between several people is a logical consequence of the acquisition of the Thomsit and Ceresit businesses completed on   1 January 2017. “By appointing Frank Rösiger to the Management Board, we are underlining our claim to be a technology leader in this sector. This clearly expresses our commitment to continuous product innovation,” said Marc C. Köppe. Rösiger, who joined the Group in 1997, held various positions with Degussa Bauchemie and BASF before becoming Head of Operations of PCI Augsburg GmbH in 2012. 

Udo Weimer joined PCI from the quick-mix Group, where he was Head of Sales and then Managing Director. He has been appointed Managing Director at PCI with effect from 1 April 2017. Manfred Grundmann, who is retiring after 35 years with PCI, will therefore be succeeded by a figure who is well-known and respected throughout the industry. ”Our strength is our customer nearness. With Udo Weimer and the entire sales team, we intend to further sharpen this focus,” said Köppe. In his opinion, PCI is well-positioned to master future challenges with its new top management: “In future, we intend to continue growth in our core markets of Germany, Austria, Switzerland and BeNeLux and to further reinforce our strengths.”
