Steve comments, “ The combined experience and knowledge of the UK team combined with the Hegla Group support from Germany, which has always been there, give me a high degree of confidence in HEGLA UK’s ability to remain a leading machinery, software and furnace supplier through the next phase of HEGLA UK’s strategic journey. 

I have helped to shape this new team - both in terms of the executives and the allocation of responsibilities - with a view to ensuring that the company can work and act collectively. They will be able to execute the Group's priorities moving forward.”

Bernhard Hoetger, COO HEGLA Group comments, “It is essential that the HEGLA ethos continues its culture of openness and trust with customers. As a unified team this will ensure a smooth transition as Steve steps into a consultancy role. The aim is to continue moving forward positively and to ensure customers’ needs remain a top priority.”
