On February 01, 2022, Jörg Fliegner (middle) has taken over the management of PIA Automation Bad Neustadt GmbH together with Burkhard Fries (right). Bastian Uhlig (left) has started as the new sales manager at the site on the same date. This strengthens the management team of PIA Bad Neustadt for the changes of the market and further growing in the sectors E-Mobility and electronic production.
Mr. Leonard Schmidt (former PIA Bad Neustadt management) has left us at his own request as of January 31, 2022, in order to pursue new tasks. We regret this because with Mr. Schmidt we are losing a valuable manager and we wish him all the best and continued success in his future professional and private career.
We are very pleased to announce that we were be able to strengthen the management team of PIA Bad Neustadt GmbH with 2 new experienced colleagues, effective February 01, 2022.
Jörg Fliegner takes over the management of PIA Automation Bad Neustadt GmbH together with Burkhard Fries, who remains in this position since August 2020 and previously served as plant manager at Ningbo PIA and project manager at PIA Bad Neustadt. Burkhard Fries is primarily responsible for sales, engineering and administrative areas. In the future, Jörg Fliegner will be primarily responsible for the operational units.
Jörg Fliegner has many years of experience in management positions and knows the special requirements of special mechanical engineering from his previous activities. He also brings with him a great deal of practical knowledge and expertise in the areas of standardization and lean management. His focus is both on optimizing internal processes and on project execution.
Winning interesting projects on the changing market and continuing to handle them profitably and with the highest quality in the regional and international surroundings is one of the declared goals of the two managing directors.
"With the combined experience of Burkhard Fries and Jörg Fliegner, our strategic goal of the PIA Group to ensure sustainable success through engineering excellence, stronger customer orientation and profitability will be implemented at the Bad Neustadt site," says Thomas Ernst, Co-CEO of PIA Automation Holding GmbH.
For the vacant position of the sales management we also could win an experienced colleague, Mr. Bastian Uhlig. In addition to his sales experience, he also strengthens us in the area of the future markets ADAS and electronics production.
"Together with the international PIA locations, we are excited about the strengthening of the team in Bad Neustadt and look forward to the upcoming cooperation. PIA Automation Bad Neustadt is now excellently positioned for the opportunities that the market for automation offers regionally, interregionally and globally," Thomas Ernst further explained.
