A farewell that will become official on 1 April 2020. On this date Georg Schafrath will take over the role of Managing Director of AB Mikroelektronik in Salzburg, also part of AVX Sensing and Control Division. AB Elektronik Sachsen GmbH will be managed on an interim basis by the long-standing plant management team members Aldo Bojarski, Head of Development at the Klingenberg site, and Lars Warnecke, Head of Finance of the Sensing and Control Division.
Originally planned in the context of a works meeting, the farewell took place on a much smaller scale than planned, in the spirit of social isolation. However, Georg Schafrath found very personal words for the workforce and management team, who have backed him with unreserved loyalty since 2017. As a member of the Supervisory Board, he will continue to be associated with the plant in the future.
Herr Schafrath takes up his new role with optimistic foresight. “AB Mikroelektronik stands for innovative automotive technologies with the Power Module and LED technologies product lines, strong application depth and customer specific developments. With worldwide production at the global locations of the AVX group, together with the local team we continue to build on our strengths.”
