New managing director for Monforts

Mr Stefan Flöth has been assigned as a further Managing Director of A. Monforts Textilmaschinen GmbH & Co. KG in Mönchengladbach, Germany, as of January 1st 2019. 

He has re-joined Monforts in his new role from the Trützschler Group, also headquartered in Mönchengladbach, where he was the MD of Trützschler Nonwovens from 2009 onwards.

Having spent his working life in the textile machinery industry, Mr Flöth started his career with Schlafhorst. 

Between 1996 and 2009 Stefan Flöth was already a key part of the Monforts team in various roles related to R&D, mechanical design and management of the company’s joint ventures.

He is now looking forward to acquainting himself with the current wider Monforts network of customers and suppliers at the forthcoming Techtextil and ITMA 2019 exhibitions in Frankfurt and Barcelona respectively.

“Both exhibitions serve as excellent platforms for networking and meetings with key players,” he says. “What I find is, is that keeping good relationships with customers is essential, because what they buy from us is an investment in their future and they need to trust in our continued support. The upcoming shows will provide a great opportunity to meet many customers quickly.”

“Over the past ten years working in the nonwovens industry, I have gained a lot of experience in the management of complex technical textile projects which I intend to draw on,” he adds. “And my focus will certainly be on the opportunities presented by Industry 4.0 and the potential of the technical textiles market.”
