Austrian plastics machinery manufacturer Engel has appointed Sebastian Dombos as the new managing director of Engel Deutschland GmbH in Nuremberg, effective 1 April 2021.
Dombos, who joined ENGEL in Nuremberg as sales manager in February 2020, will succeed Ralf Christofori, who served for over 20 years as head of Engel’s sales and service subsidiary at the Nuremburg location.
Sebastian Dombos studied mechanical engineering and industrial engineering and has almost 20 years of experience in the plastics industry. At Engel in Nuremberg, he will lead a team of 75 employees in the sales, customer service, training and administration divisions. The subsidiary is active in the German federal states of Bavaria and Saxony as well as in part of Thuringia.
Germany is one of Engel's largest target markets and is of particular strategic importance due to its strong focus on technology. Engel has a total of four locations - in Nuremberg, Hanover, Hagen and Stuttgart -across the country.
Christoph Steger, CSO of the ENGEL Group, thanked Christofori for his ‘unwavering commitment’ to ENGEL.
“The standards he set for himself and for others to always accept only the best performance is a role model for many colleagues. We wish him all the best as he embarks on this new phase of life."
