Kautex Maschinenbau has named Robert Kubotsch as the new head of Global IT, tasked with the overall responsibility for information technology at Kautex Maschinenbau.
The appointment represents the next step in the company’s ongoing strategic realignment process, which involves a comprehensive restructuring of its operations in line with its ‘BeOne’ motto, aimed at achieving more integrated processes and standards across the enterprise.
In his previous position, Robert Kubotsch gained experience and a deep understanding of the business processes involved in running a machinery manufacturing enterprise and its ever-expanding IT requirements. At Kautex, he will be focussed on harmonising the existing IT systems and optimising these for collaboration between the global Kautex team, customers and partners by increasing digitalisation in communication, production, and service. Isolated solutions will be replaced with a uniform IT structure at all locations, and the availability of IT services and infrastructure at crucial points will be improved.
This will enable production solutions that are more intelligent, modular, and flexible that are able to generate added value for customers.
“The huge investment in IT is an additional element for sustainable implementation of our new vision - BeOne Global Kautex Team,” said CEO Thomas Hartkämper . “We are delighted to be able to welcome an experienced IT specialist for our global Kautex team in Robert Kubotsch.”
