Johannes Meißner strengthens WITRON management

Johannes Meißner strengthens WITRON management


Starting January 1, 2020, Johannes Meißner will strengthen the WITRON management board. The central motivation for this decision is the enormous company and employee growth in all business areas of the WITRON Group. This requires the management board team to cover a wide range of topics, clarity of responsibilities, and maximum focus on customers, employees, and projects.

As technical managing director, Johannes is responsible for the project processing including the WITRON IT and PLC systems within the WITRON GmbH. The 53-year-old graduated engineer, specialized in communications engineering, has been working for WITRON for more than 30 years and is therefore a true WITRON institution. During this time, numerous national and international lighthouse projects such as logistic centers of Cardinal Health, Kroger, or EDEKA were successfully put into operation under his direction. He was also significantly involved in the concept phase of the two Coles distribution centers in Australia. Johannes is regarded by customers and employees alike as a proven logistics expert. We would like to wish Johannes a good start and plenty of success in his future responsibilities. 

With this strengthening of the management board team, it will be possible for Martin Stich to fully focus on FAS and its increasing business volume in the future. This includes the entire design, project planning, production, and assembly of our mechanical and steel construction projects – as well as the future doubling of our production area. In the course of this change, FAS (so far a subsidiary of WITRON Logistik + Informatik GmbH), will be directly linked to the holding companies as a separate company in the same way as WITRON Logistik + Informatik GmbH.

The current management board is composed as follows: 

  • Helmut Prieschenk:
WITRON Logistik + Informatik GmbH
Sales, Logistics Design, Central Services, IMS
  • Johannes Meißner:
WITRON Logistik + Informatik GmbH
IT, PLC, Control Cabinet Construction, Extensions
  • Martin Stich:
FAS FörderAnlagen Systeme GmbH
Construction, Project Planning, Mechanics & Steel Construction
  • Christian Dietl:
WITRON Service GmbH & Co.KG
