Mr. Andreas Freiler, after his long and highly successful service as Managing Director Technical/Production, has entered his well-deserved retirement. He has led the company, along with Mr. Manfred Heissenberger, Managing Director Marketing & Sales, to a leading position in terms of quality and innovation. With the development and launch of innovative products such as Lumera and Twilight Pearl, to name but a few, Sattler SUN-TEX GmbH has set new market standards for sun protection. Due to the consistent market orientation of production and production planning, Sattler SUN-TEX GmbH stands for the highest levels of supply security and for quick delivery times, even in difficult periods.
The position of Managing Director Technical/Production has been taken over by a textile expert of international experience, Mr. Ibrahim Türköz.
Mr. Türköz completed his qualifications as textile machine operator, textile mechanic and apprentice master. Afterwards, he graduated from his studies of Textile and Clothing Technology at the Hochschule Niederrhein (Germany).
He has almost 20 years of qualified leadership experience as factory manager, technical section leader and managing director in the production of technical textiles and clothing textiles. He has gathered his experience in Germany, Switzerland, and to a large extent outside of Europe.
“A highly competent and well-regarded professional leaves us in the person of Mr. Andreas Freiler, but due to our long-term planning, we managed to gain a highly experienced textile manager in Mr. Ibrahim Türköz for our company. After an intense period of handover, Mr. Freiler continues to be at our side with his counsel and expertise”, as Manfred Heissenberger is glad to sum up his thoughts about this fortunate instance of succession planning.
As for Ibrahim Türköz, he is already busy working on shaping the future of SATTLER SUN-TEX: “I am grateful to be collaborating with this team of specialists of the domain of technical textiles here at Sattler. Further-more, it is a pleasure to look forward to the multitude of tasks and challenges linked to the elaboration of a new collection.”
