Farewell from Mr Nothaft / Announcement of new management
Dear Sir or Madam,
Today I would like to say my goodbyes to you.
After 20 years as managing director of MEILLER Aufzugtüren GmbH, I will retire on 1.7.2023.
For the company and for me personally, these 20 years have been a successful, and hugely enjoyable time. Ultimately, we owe this success to you, our customers and partners, and above all to the trust you have placed in us over the years. For this, I would like to say a heartfelt "thank you" once again today.
I am delighted that Mr Christian Dressler and Mr Klaus Schafranietz will then take over responsibility for MEILLER Aufzugtüren GmbH in my place and I ask you to place the same trust in them.
I wish you much success, all the best and above all, good health.
Dear Sir or Madam, Dear Business Partners,
We, the new managing directors, would like to briefly introduce ourselves to you.
I, Christian Dreßler, have been with Meiller Aufzugtüren GmbH since 1st January 2023 and I am very pleased to be taking over from Wolfgang Nothaft from July and to be managing our company together with Mr Klaus Schafranietz.
After studying business administration at the University of Passau, I started my career in the lift industry at the secondary brand of Otis Germany, first as a sales representative for new installations, branch manager and finally as sales manager for Germany. In 2014, I switched to the door automation industry, where I held managing positions at KOS Spezialtüren (record Group) and record Türautomation GmbH as well as Gilgen Door Systems.
I am very much looking forward to my new role here at Meiller and especially to working with you.
I, Klaus Schafranietz, have been working for Meiller for 35 years. The first 10 years in the test department for tipper bodies and the other 25 years at Meiller Aufzugtüren GmbH.
After studying automotive engineering in Munich, I passed through various positions at Meiller, from production support to head of production, plant management to head of engineering and then general manager. For 20 years I was able to successfully accompany Mr. Nothaft in the management of Meiller Aufzugtüren GmbH and I am now looking forward to the new challenges as technical managing director.
I would be honoured to receive the same trust from you as a longstanding business partner as Mr. Nothaft was able to experience during his tenure.
It is important to Mr. Dreßler and I to continuously improve our company so that we can do "a very good job" for you. That is what we are here for together as the Meiller Lift Doors Team. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Nothaft for his many years of active commitment and wish him all the best for the future.
Christian Dreßler and Klaus Schafranietz
