François Minec, Velox General Manger said
We are very happy to welcome Jürgen in our team especially as we trust he is the right person to push VELOX on the German-speaking Composites markets due to his professional career
With 25 years of experience in Composites, Jürgen H. Aurer has a strong knowledge on the products and the market. His experience as Manager at BASF, Managing Director at BÜFA, Euroresins, DSM Composite Resins Deutschland and ALPOMID, founded by himself in 2011, brought him a large knowledge on the Composites market. Jürgen has also been very active for the Composites Industry as he was until 2010 President of AVK, the Federation of Reinforced Plastics, as well as boardmember of GKV. With this partnership VELOX is confident to enter the German-speaking markets to become the one-stop shop in Europe for composites.
Velox is a valuable partner for the Processors as well as for the Principals in the European Composites Industry. My heart is beating for composites and I am very happy to be able to contribute together with VELOX to the further growth of this industry. This cooperation will give to our Austrian, German and Swiss Composites customers access to the powerful network of VELOX. New opportunities for innovative products, latest technology and composites know-how are guaranteed. We plan to launch our new activities in January 2014. Thanks to Velox extensive regional stock and distribution system we will then be ready to start with a full range of products and reliable just-in-time deliveries at competitive cost.
