Reorganisation and reinforcement at KOSTAL Industrie Elektrik
Frank Henn has been responsible as interim manager since 1 November 2017 for the establishing of the Photovoltaics business unit at KOSTAL Industrie Elektrik. For the benefit of customers, the technical speciality disciplines of the solar division located in Hagen, such as Development and Product Management, should be more closely coordinated with the sales company KOSTAL Solar Electric, which is based in Freiburg and is closely involved with the market, in this newly established organisational unit. The goals are a consistent orientation of the business unit to customer benefits, quicker reaction to dynamic market developments and positioning in line with new trends. The market launch of the versatile Plenticore plus string inverter generation and of the new PIKO IQ series in the first half of 2018 make this smart brand philosophy experienceable.
The 52 year-old industrial engineer Frank Henn previously established and expanded the global sales activities of the SolarWorld AG, and has been employed for more than 20 years in management positions of the leading brand manufacturers of electrical engineering products.
