Bobst Group is continuing its investment for the future and confirms its strategic priorities based on growth, innovation for digital printing, IoT and digitalisation of its core business processes.
The group executive committee is evolving and Erik Bothorel will leave the group executive committee by end of 2018. Stephan März, current head of the business unit services, will take on responsibility for business unit web-fed as of January 1, 2019, while Julien Laran, current head of the supply chain and operations within the Business Unit Services, will be appointed head of business unit services as of January 1, 2019.
Bobst Group is continuing on its path of transformation and growth for its flexible and label business. The business unit web-fed faces various challenges linked to its strategy implementation, market penetration and profitability improvement and the group is therefore implementing changes in this business unit.
