Uwe Lüders, Chairman of the Executive Board of L. Possehl & Co. mbH, will remain Managing Director of manroland web systems GmbH, yet he will withdraw from the operative business. “I am glad that with Eckhard Hörner-Maraß we found an entrepreneurial Managing Director who is going to lead and bring forward the manroland web systems GmbH together with the established management team,” Lüders emphasized. Recently, the company acquired the factory premises from the insolvency administrator and thus affirmed its long-term commitment to the Augsburg site.
