After almost 30 years with the company, Monforts Vice-President Klaus Heinrichs is to retire at the end of May.
A very well-known and respected figure in the industry, Klaus began working in marketing for the company in 1992.
“From the beginning Klaus used his flair and networking skills to secure and improve the company’s international presence and public relations, especially at seven successive ITMA textile machinery exhibitions, beginning with the show in Milan in 1995,says Nicole Croonenbroek, Marketing Manager, Monforts. Later, he moved to the customer service, sales administration and exports departments.
Heinrichs has also involved in the successful product launches for Monforts technical and technological highlights such as the TwinAir principle of independent airflow regulation, the Hercules LTM stenter chain, the Econtrol® dyeing technology or the Montex®Coat device - to mention only a few. He has also been active on the VDMA’s Exhibition and Marketing Committee since 1993, which he chaired from 2005 to 2008.
Klaus always enriched the industry discussions with practical and future-oriented proposals and thus also advanced ITMA, adds Thomas Waldmann, Managing Director, VDMA Textile Machinery Association.
