Strate­gic and oper­a­tive devel­op­ments in all busi­ness areas of the STIWA Group  – Wol­fram Schrittess­er hands over the man­age­ment of STIWA Automa­tion GmbH to Michael Fuchs­hu­ber as of Jan­u­ary 1, 2021  – the gen­er­a­tional change is continued

The Upper Aus­tri­an automa­tion spe­cial­ist STIWA based in Attnang-Puch­heim is under­go­ing a trans­for­ma­tion process on sev­er­al lev­els. Cur­rent­ly, all busi­ness units are work­ing on strate­gic and oper­a­tional devel­op­ments: In the future, automa­tion — and thus the core busi­ness of the STIWA Group — will be posi­tioned even more broad­ly by expand­ing the prod­uct port­fo­lio. STIWA Advanced Prod­ucts has already suc­cess­ful­ly repo­si­tioned itself, focus­ing on new tech­nolo­gies and prod­ucts. We are also sharp­en­ing our pro­file in the Soft­ware busi­ness seg­ment “The changes in the mar­ket are clear­ly notice­able for all com­pa­nies. We meet these changes with con­stant inno­va­tion and are con­vinced that we will reach our growth tar­gets with these new direc­tions”, says STIWA Hold­ing CEO Peter Sticht.

Fuchs­hu­ber fol­lows Schrittess­er — gen­er­a­tion change will be continued

In this con­text there is also a change in the man­age­ment of STIWA Automa­tion GmbH. After Wol­fram Schrittess­er resigned as man­ag­ing direc­tor of STIWA Automa­tion GmbH and STIWA Inter­na­tion­al GmbH in mutu­al agree­ment and inter­est, the share­hold­ers’ meet­ing last week appoint­ed the 44-year-old DI (FH) Michael Fuchs­hu­ber as his suc­ces­sor at STIWA Automa­tion GmbH. Fuchs­hu­ber joined the com­pa­ny in 1999. The grad­u­ate of the Uni­ver­si­ty of Applied Sci­ences in Wels (Upper Aus­tria) was ini­tial­ly employed in the field of tech­nol­o­gy inte­gra­tion. In 2012 he moved to the pur­chas­ing depart­ment, which he took over as head in 2014. “I am delight­ed that in Michael Fuchs­hu­ber we have been able to win an expe­ri­enced and suc­cess­ful man­ag­er for this posi­tion and wish him every suc­cess in his new role. With this move, we are con­sis­tent­ly con­tin­u­ing the gen­er­a­tion change in STIWA Automa­tion. In order to ensure a smooth hand-over, Wol­fram Schrittess­er will con­tin­ue to serve as man­ag­ing direc­tor until the end of the year.


Many thanks to Wol­fram Schrittess­er for his 30 years of suc­cess­ful work at STIWA

Under the man­age­ment of Wol­fram Schrittess­er, STIWA Automa­tion GmbH has devel­oped into one of the most suc­cess­ful mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing com­pa­nies in Europe. On behalf of the Sticht fam­i­ly, the super­vi­so­ry and foun­da­tion board as well as the employ­ees I would like to thank him very much for his more than 30 years of work at STIWA and wish him all the best for his fur­ther pro­fes­sion­al career.
