At the end of the 2020/2021 fiscal year, there was a change in the management of Finetech GmbH & Co. KG. Carlotta Baumann took over as leader from long-time CEO Gunter Kürbis.
Gunter Kürbis was head of Finetech GmbH & Co. KG since 1999 and during this time successfully transformed the Berlin-based mechanical engineering company into a leading global manufacturer of high-precision assembly and rework systems for customers in the microelectronics industry. Under Mr. Kürbis’ leadership, Finetech expanded with several sales & service offices in North America and Asia, followed by the move of the Berlin headquarters to a state-of-the-art production and development center in 2015.
Now Gunter Kürbis has passed the baton to the next generation. Carlotta Baumann is the first woman to take the position of managing director at Finetech GmbH & Co. KG. She has already been working in the same capacity for the rework and dispensing specialist MARTIN GmbH, a subsidiary of Finetech, since 2016.
For Carlotta Baumann, the move to Berlin marks a return to familiar territory. She once completed her master’s degree in electrical engineering in the German capital, and Finetech is already well known to her through numerous work stays.
Carlotta Baumann: “First of all, my heartfelt thanks go to Gunter Kürbis, who significantly and with great commitment has shaped Finetech’s success story. Taking over the management of Finetech now is a task that I am very much looking forward to. We are celebrating our 30th anniversary at Finetech this fiscal year and have a lot planned. Our customers can look forward to exciting new products that continue to cover the entire spectrum of applications from R&D labs to automated production environments. Finetech will continue to be their strong equipment partner on the journey from product development to industrial automated production.”
