Press Release N 3 / 2011 Klaus Fuchs becomes Managing Partner

New motivation for BESSEY

Since April, Managing Director Klaus Fuchs has been a Partner of the BESSEY Group in Bietigheim-Bissingen, giving the longestablished, 122-year old company a Managing Director with direct involvement in the company for the first time in eleven years. "I am simply convinced by BESSEY products", explains the 54-year old on his decision. "It seemed only logical to get involved in the company". It was back in 2000 when Klaus Fuchs started his career at BESSEY, a long-established company comprising three business areas: clamping technology, cutting technology and precision steels. His first step was as head of the precision steels section. After a change to the company's structure, Klaus Fuchs became Managing Director of BESSEY Przisionsstahl GmbH in 2004, and Managing Director of BESSEY Tool GmbH & Co. KG in 2005. Then in 2011, after a further six years, Klaus Fuchs decided to take another step for BESSEY by becoming directly involved in the company, and alongside shareholders Fetscher and Mayer, a Managing Partner. After eleven years, the 122year old company is once again owner-managed.
