For maximum proximity to customers and to continue to meet the requirements of the eastern European market in future, the HEGLA Group will open a subsidiary in Poland.

The sales and technology team at the new location will provide direct support for all projects, enquiries and service cases in the region and offer fast local assistance when spare parts are required. “The subsidiary is a further hub in our HEGLA network. We are establishing it to position ourselves as a reliable partner for further growth,” said Jochen H. Hesselbach, CEO of the HEGLA Group.

Added value with an expanded, local service team

The expanded team in Wrocław supplements the HEGLA Group’s global sales & service locations. The Group is also setting up a software centre in the subsidiary that will provide customers with programming services for both HEGLA and HEGLA-HANIC.

“In Michał Siergiejewicz, we are pleased to have found a managing director who has many years of experience in the glass industry and an outstanding network that stretches well beyond Poland,” emphasised HEGLA GROUP COO Bernhard Hötger. “Along with his co-managing director, Thomas Wellendorf, we are extremely well positioned for the region in future.”

Thomas Wellendorf will be co-managing director at HEGLA Poland. Customers know him from his previous position as head of sales for northern and eastern Europe and Russia/CIS.
