Fitschen has been appointed Managing Director of Operations. Fitschen replaces long time President Thomas Blesinger who retired in November. Fitschen brings a strong European operations and  material handling background to Geppert-Band, having previously worked at DB Santaslao Gears and Getriebebau.
