Lenzing resumes its production in China and appoints new managers

 

 

Lenzing confronts the coronavirus. The Austrian manufacturer of fibers has resumed its production in the city of Nanjing in China, after experiencing complications in the Asian country due to the outbreak of the coronavirus. Additionally, the Austrian company has appointed Stephan Sielaff and Christian Skilich as chief technology officer and administrator of pulp and wood raw materials, respectively.

 

The Austrian company had temporarily halted its production in China due to a shortage of supplies of raw materials, as a result of intense transport controls in relation to the outbreak of the coronavirus in the country.

 

On the other hand, Lenzing has appointed Stephan Sielaff and Christian Skilich as chief technology officer and administrator of pulp and wood waw materials, respectively. These two appointments have meant increasing the company’s board of directors from four to five.

 

 

 

 

Stephan Sielaff will be Lenzing’s new chief technology officer effective March 1, 2020, succeeding Heiko Arnold, who left the company last November. Sielaff is an engineer with experience in the chemical industry since 1993, holding positions at Unilever and Symrise.

 

On the other hand, Christian Skilich will assume the position of member of the board of administration of pulp and wood raw materials from June 1, 2020. Skilich recently served as director of operations on the board of directors of Mondi, overseeing projects in States United and Europe.

 

Lenzing is led by  Stefan Doboczky, the chairman of the company. It ended 2018 with sales of 2.2 billion euros (2.4 billion dollars), 3.7% less than the previous year. The net result stood at 148.2 million euros (163.4 million dollars), compared to 281.7 million (310.6 million dollars) in 2017, down by 47.3%.
