A new management team will be in place at Bundy Germany in 2021, to make way for a smooth transition after the retirement of the company’s long-standing head of research and development.
Jörg Kirchner will retire in the second half of 2021, having served Bundy in Germany for over three decades. A dedicated engineer, Mr Kirchner is credited as the brains behind Bundy’s innovative wing tube technology and has recently succeeded in gaining patents on many of the company’s revolutionary technical products.
Mr Kirchner began his career as a production engineer before starting his own company in Bleicherode as well as a joint venture with Kenmore international, working on wire and tube condenser production in Germany, China and Turkey. In 2008 Mr Kirchner joined Bundy Refrigeration, where he was instrumental in successfully relocating the Bundy factory from Denmark to Germany. Mr Kirchner became director of product development for Bundy in 2011, having created a large number of patents covering wing tube technology, which provides significant operational benefits to refrigeration units including easier maintenance and reduced energy usage.
The new management team will be led by Bill Esler, who is experienced in engineering, technology and finance, along with Sascha Wieland, Andy Listemann and Sven Rothhagen who have all been with Bundy Germany for many years.
Mr Esler commented: “I am looking forward to taking Bundy Germany into its next phase. Jörg and his team have done an excellent job over the last 12 years, particularly with regard to innovation and new patented products and Bundy Germany is now a vital and dynamic part of the Bundy group. The last year has been incredibly difficult, and I am very grateful to everyone at Bundy Germany for the way they have faced unprecedented circumstances. It is testament to the hard work and determination of the team that Bundy Germany was able to meet customer demands in as normal a way as possible.
“Our focus is to continue to work in partnership with our customers to deliver the essential products that make market leading refrigeration brands. That also means developing our innovative wing tube technology to improve energy efficiency and reduce maintenance cycles.'
