11/09/2015 - Robert Pernath appointed General Manager at NOWOFOL
Robert Pernath will take over as General Manager at NOWOFOL Kunststoffprodukte in Siegsdorf. He succeeds Robert Hodann, who has retired after 19 years in a leadership position for the Upper Bavarian manufacturer of customised MOPP films and fluoropolymer films.
Pernath previously served as Technical Manager at NOWOFOL and has been part of the team since 1993. The 46 year-old plastics engineer initiated the energetic optimisation of the production process and the entire facility. In 2014 his work was recognised with an award for an innovative energy-saving cooling concept. Under Pernath’s direction and strategic development of the business unit technology, the film manufacturer has expanded its production to the current 13 extrusion lines. “We are delighted to appoint such an experienced and qualified manager out of our own successful team for this function!” said Wolfgang Rasp, General Manager and Head of Sales at NOWOFOL. “Furthermore, we say THANK YOU to Robert Hodann for the successful collaboration over the past years. Without his untiring efforts and enthusiastic work, our NOWOFLON ETFE film for architecture wouldn’t be the high-flying building material that it is today! His entrepreneurial spirit is characteristic for the successful development of NOWOFOL."
