Gurit has introduced a new Group Organisation effective of February 1, 2013.

Gurt explains that lightweight, high performance composites are increasingly finding their way into a growing array of industries. Gurit is introducing a new organisation, as a measure to improve future growth both as supplier of a unique and comprehensive range of composite materials and, progressively, as a systems and engineering provider supplying composite tooling equipment, engineering and select finished parts. Gurit expects to grow its addressable composite market considerably by consistently leveraging its technological expertise, capabilities and industrial capacities in the course of the next years. The new organisation will be effective as of February 1, 2013, and will comprise two business units:

Gurit Composite Materials covers the materials business of the existing target markets Wind Energy, Transportation and Marine and all others, as well as newly emerging composite applications. This unit covers the material categories prepregs, core materials and formulated products. Stefan Gautschi who will join Gurit on February 1, 2013 will lead this business unit. The global composite materials market will be served through four market regions and all materials production sites will be managed by a global head of operations.

Gurit Composite Systems and Engineering unites the existing Tooling, Automotive Parts and Engineered Structures businesses under their current management and will be led by Rudolf Hadorn in addition to his function CEO.
