Change in Management at Kiefel Subsidiary SWA
Czech company SWA s.r.o., a subsidiary of Kiefel GmbH, Freilassing, Germany, reports a routine change in its management. Jürgen Heidel has, for family-related reasons, handed over to Vladimír Suchý the management of the company specializing in vehicle interiors.
The 45-year-old mechanical engineering graduate will be managing the affairs of SWA s.r.o. jointly with Andreas Frisch. Vladimír Suchý, an outstanding technical expert, was most recently the head of operations at the Czech Republic branch of a supplier to the international automotive sector.
Toolmaker and plant-system manufacturer SWA, which is based in Stod, in the district of Pilsen, has belonged to Kiefel GmbH since 1st October 2014, thus making it part of the internationally active Bruckner Group. As a partner to renowned car manufacturers and their suppliers, SWA develops and manufactures tools, machines and equipment for the manufacture of vehicle parts. The acquisition of SWA allowed Kiefel to expand its catalogue by adding expertise in press-laminating and the pressing of natural fibers to its existing range, along with new toolmaking skills.
