With a change in top management, ViscoTec is writing a new chapter in its highly successful company history. The long-standing Commercial Managing Director, Georg Senftl, will retire at the end of 2021. He will be succeeded on 1st July by 32-year-old Franz Kamhuber, who is currently responsible for global sales as Sales Director. Change in Management at ViscoTec: Georg Senftl (left) and Franz Kamhuber (right) Georg Senftl (left) and Franz Kamhuber (right) For the next six months, Franz Kamhuber and Georg Senftl will jointly steer the company’s affairs together with Martin Stadler, the Technical Managing Director. “I am confident that with Georg Senftl as my sparring partner, I will be able to completely carry out my role in management after a few weeks,” Franz Kamhuber emphasizes. For over six years, Franz, who is a degreed industrial engineer, has had a strong mentor in Georg Senftl. Asked about his goals, he mainly refers to his predecessor’s successes: “The bar is high, and I am aware of the large footprints I am stepping in. I will continue along this successful path.” ViscoTec has continuously grown in the past, and Franz Kamhuber already sees the potential for the future very clearly. In the long term, the company plans to open more subsidiaries worldwide in order to expand internationally. The recently established subsidiary in France is just one example of what this growth can look like. Further subsidiaries are being planned, as Franz Kamhuber explains: “The change in the world markets and the shift of production facilities for electronics manufacturing towards Asia, not only opens up growth potential, but also demands a corporate rethink.” If the East Asian market around China, Korea, Japan, etc. continues to develop so rapidly, companies will manufacture electronic components there for almost all industries in the future. “These are opportunities to present our dispensing technologies to the global markets.” In the long run, Franz Kamhuber can imagine establishing further subsidiaries, perhaps even individual production stages, in East Asia. “None of this is something that will be implemented overnight, but as a company we have to start to take a close look at the value chains of the future in order to make use of opportunities,” explains the Bavarian native. ViscoTec is currently experiencing an unprecedented boom in orders. A new production hall including office space is planned on the company premises in Töging to be able to handle all orders. Franz Kamhuber knows his responsibility: “I know every face in the company because of my long history. I want to offer my colleagues the best working conditions, even with a high volume of orders. Then it’s a matter of looking at where automated processes can take effect in order to become even more efficient.” He is looking forward to his new role, says Franz Kamhuber, who is married and has two children. “The little ones are just 3- and 1 year old. Besides my career, it is important to me, to be able to spend time with my wife and see the children grow up.” This is entirely in line with Georg Senftl’s approach, who has always based ViscoTec’s success on the strong – almost family-like – cohesion of all employees.
