Logistics BusinessGebhardt Appoints MD for Switzerland

The Gebhardt Intralogistics Group has named Kim Fabian Schneider as Managing Director of its Swiss subsidiary. With this step, the location will be sustainably strengthened to generate further growth and to expand the sales of innovative warehouse logistics solutions on the Swiss market as well as in the neighbouring countries. The new managing director has gained more than 13 years of industry experience before he became sales and project manager at Gebhardt Switzerland in September 2017. In his new position, the industrial engineer, with a Bachelor of Science in Business Engineering will increase the level of local brand awareness and further establish the subsidiary.

“With the wide Gebhardt product portfolio, I would like to sustainably optimise the internal material flows of Swiss customers in all linguistic regions and neighbouring countries in the future and increase their process reliability and efficiency to be able to secure the decisive advantage for the customer in the end”, said Kim Fabian Schneider. The management believes that, “the market can be served more efficiently through the expanded competencies. The increased proximity to the customers enables a more intensive, personal, but also more efficient onsite support.”

Switzerland is an important economic and industrial nation and offers enormous locational advantages with its links to countries such as France. Machine and system construction are further developing into a key industry and thus constitutes a major economic sector in the country. Gebhardt founded the subsidiary in February 2017.
