Swiss Clamping Chuck Specialist Maprox Welcomes New CEO
September 19, 2016
As a planned successor, Adrian Zwirner took over from the long-time owner Max Maurer as CEO of Maprox Gmbh effective September 1, 2016.
Zwirner has been working in mechanical and plant engineering for nearly 20 years and has been able to work up a solid track record in international sales and in the management of renowned, globally-active Swiss companies.
The graduate mechanical engineer is therefore extremely well-prepared and is looking forward to his new challenge. "I have considerable interest in managing the company as sustainably and carefully as Max Maurer has done up to now. I'm particularly pleased that we complement each other so well and that Max will remain in the company for awhile to deal increasingly with the subject of innovation. Our mutual level of trust is extremely high," said Zwirner.
Maurer and Zwirner got to know each other at the beginning of the year and have carefully prepared the changeover at the top to guarantee a new start with the least-possible problems and to set up considerable reciprocal trust. With minimal employee fluctuation over the years, the Maprox team has mastered a crisis or two and even increased its strength after the so-called Swiss Franc shock in January 2015.
Maurer will be comprehensively familiarizing the new CEO over the coming period and will continue to drive product development forward during a transition phase within the company.
For example, Maprox has reworked its pneumatic clamping chuck (PM ER32) by popular demand. It is now 25 percent narrower, still only pneumatically-operated (without springs) and at only 5 micron repeat accuracy can also be used with rotation on request. It is particularly suitable for laser processing.
Maprox GmbH produces customer-specific and high-precision clamping devices in the international market. Long-term customers include well-known automobile suppliers, clock manufacturers, instrumentation manufacturers and optic specialists. Maprox is represented in the United States by Rotec Tools, Mahopac, New York, see more at the website below.
