After 17 successful years at the helm of the long-established Alfeld-based company Fagus-GreCon GmbH & Co. KG, Mr. Uwe Kahmann will step down as Managing Director on 30 June 2024 by mutual agreement with the shareholders.

Over the 17 years, Mr. Kahmann has significantly contributed to the company's successful development and almost tripled its turnover. Under his leadership, the company has become much more international while strengthening its market leadership in its core fire prevention and measuring technology businesses.

With his trustworthy, cooperative personality, he has played a key role in shaping Fagus-GreCon's unique corporate culture.

With entrepreneurial foresight, he has driven the introduction of technical innovations to international markets in recent years and actively supported several restructuring measures, putting Fagus-GreCon in an excellent organisational position to pursue its further growth plans.

Uwe Kahmann: ‘I would like to thank the shareholders for the trust and support they have shown me. I would especially like to thank the more than 700 employees worldwide for their committed, team-orientated cooperation. It has been an honour and a pleasure to lead Fagus-GreCon successfully through challenging but mostly aspiring times over the past 17 years.’

Shareholder Ernst Greten commented: ‘Uwe deserves the unreserved recognition, special appreciation and thanks of all shareholders and the Shareholders’ Council for his great, loyal commitment. We are delighted that we have found an arrangement with Uwe where he will continue to be available in an advisory capacity if required.’

From 1 July 2024, Fagus-GreCon will return to a two-person management team of Alexander Kuppe and Mario Haas.
The expansion of the first and second management levels will also support strategic expansion, further internationalisation, and strengthening of other application areas.
