Change in management at GreCon China

26 July 2022

With effect from July 31 2022, Timo Ren becomes the managing director of GreCon GmbH China.

Mr Ren will take care of the company’s market position's expansion in China and he succeeds Ralf Schäckel, who will return to the parent company and share his experiences in the fire prevention business area at Fagus-GreCon Greten GmbH und Co KG in Alfeld.

Mr Schäckel had been responsible for the strategic further development of GreCon China for 15 years, playing a key role in the brand's successful placement on the Asian market. GreCon China has since evolved into an important subsidiary, with a good reputation, economic stability and enormous growth potential.

'We thank Ralf Schäckel for 15 years of great commitment and entrepreneurial performance,” said Uwe Kahmann, managing director of Fagus-GreCon. “From mid-August, he will share his experiences by supporting the team at our Alfeld location as technical sales manager.

In future, Timo Ren will assume the overall responsibility in his capacity as managing director of GreCon China. Mr Ren, who holds a degree in communications engineering, had been a general manager in the Asian market before he changed over to assume the same position at GreCon China in January 2022 to prepare the handover with Ralf Schäckel.

“In recent years, the GreCon brand has earned an excellent reputation as the market and technology leader in China, a reputation we must continue to confirm and expand in the future,” said Mr Ren. “Despite the country's extremely restrictive Covid policy, we can still perform our activities in a dynamic way, for example by scheduling customer visits with increased flexibility and participating in trade fairs, such as the Interzum in Guangzhou. One of our future core tasks is to further improve the service level for Chinese customers and to further reduce our response and delivery times notwithstanding the Covid-induced market situation.”
