Nabertherm GmbH, Bremen, Germany, has announced the appointment of Timm Grotheer as its new Managing Director. Grotheer, who previously served as Managing Director of shipbuilding group Lürssen, succeeds Friedrich-Wilhelm Wentrot, who has served as Managing Director of the company for eighteen years.

Under Wentrot’s direction, Nabertherm reported that it has seen global success, employing more than 500 staff and achieving a turnover of more than €60 million ($68 million). A key element in Wentrot’s strategy has been the consistent internationalisation of the business, which now has an export share of 70%, selling its furnaces and plants around the world.

As a shareholder and board member, Wentrot will continue to his involvement with Nabertherm for the foreseeable future. It is now expected that Grotheer will guide the company in continuing its worldwide growth and development.

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
