Dr Jan Weckes appointed Managing Director of Schade Lagertechnik

by David Fleschen

Jan Weckes sees SCHADE Lagertechnik as a landmark in his professional development. In making the decision to take
on the leadership of this internationally renowned business, he recognised the opportunity to expand on his passion for
sophisticated technology.

Previously, at IAS GmbH, an international technology leader in the construction of induction furnaces, and member of
the SMS Group, Jan had taken responsibility for strengthening order intake and expanding strategic teamwork within
the group of companies. During his tenure at MBE Coal & Minerals Technology he was responsible for developing its
global sales and marketing activities. In both of these positions there was an equally important emphasis on new
equipment and service business. Jan gathered experience in the industries and markets relevant to SCHADE products
and services when he was on international assignments with Outotec GmbH.

Dr Jan Weckes is now consolidating his many years of experience into this new challenge, saying “SCHADE
Lagertechnik is one of the international leaders in bulk materials stockyards and blending beds. The company has a
long and distinguished history and is internationally recognised as a specialist in storage technology. I intend to build
on this success, and continue to grow the business. A multitude of innovations, tailor-made technology based on
sustainability, and a network of experts in sales and service, are three important pillars which will support this growth. I
am very much looking forward to contributing my commitment and experience to the international SCHADE team.”
