Heiko Kasper is the new head of the mold making division, which was led for a long time by Alois Hoyer, who retired at the end of 2017. Heiko Kasper is supported by Michael Späth, who has taken on the new role of head of the mold manufacturing department. Heiko Kasper, 43, will head a team with 37 members. A trained toolmaker, he has been with BBG since September 2017. He can look back on more than 25 years of experience in the automotive industry, the last ten years of which he spent in North and South America. His responsibility includes the further development of quality standards and intensifying international cooperation. The new head of manufacturing, Michael Späth, 54, has worked for the company since 1989, and in his previous position was responsible for work preparation, machining and CNC programming. In his new role, he leads a team of 23 skilled workers.

Focus on Global Growth

BBG plans to strengthen its position as an international mold maker thanks to the division of tasks and the employing of new leaders at the senior management level. Among other things, this is intended to intensify the support of global key accounts. To this end, the corresponding business units of the BBG companies in Germany, China and the USA are going to step up their cooperation. The company plans, for example, to strengthen technological exchange and to develop joint quality standards. More intensive cooperation within the BBG group is to contribute to helping the company grow further as a fast, reliable, and flexible provider of high-quality mold making.

The most important customers for BBG molds come from the automotive manufacturing industry. Key accounts include globally active automotive suppliers, who encapsulate car glass with PUR or PVC and TPE.

The mold making division accounted for 60% of the BBG group's sales in the amount of approx. EUR 30 million in 2017, the remainder was generated by machine and system construction. At the company's headquarters at Mindelheim, molds in the amount of approx. EUR 9 million were produced, mold sales at BBG Asia amounted to EUR 6.1 million, and BBG North America, which was founded in 2014, generated mold sales of EUR 2.9 million.

BBG supply their products to their customers all over the world, with the Asian market playing an important role in addition to the markets in Europe and North America. With a headcount of 170, BBG generated worldwide sales to the tune of EUR 30 million in 2017.
