PKV strengthens management team
For the future technical management of the plant in Varel, PKV has been able to recruit Rolf Bauer, an experienced expert with a modern management approach. Ulrich Lange, who has been the only technical managing director to date, will concentrate on ongoing projects such as the preliminary planning for an additional site in Wilhelmshaven.
Since October 1, 2022, Mr. Rolf Bauer from Leer has strengthened the management of PKV. Most recently, he was Director Specialty Papers Operations at UPM Nordland Papier GmbH in Dörpen. Mr. Bauer will take over Mr. Lange’s previous area of responsibility so that Mr. Lange can concentrate on ongoing projects such as the preliminary planning for an additional site for climate-neutral production of ultra-light corrugated base papers in Wilhelmshaven. With Rolf Bauer, PKV has gained a professional as reinforcement who knows the paper industry from the bottom up. Since joining the company in 1992 as a mechanical / process engineer in Dörpen, he has held various management positions at Nordland Papier GmbH and within the UPM Group and has managed several major projects. “In the process, he has not only acquired versatile technical expertise, but has also demonstrated modern leadership qualities with empathy and a positive basic attitude,” says PKV shareholder Kristian Evers. “We look forward to working together – exciting, challenging tasks in turbulent times lie ahead for all of us!”
