We are proud of their great performance and wish them both continued success on their paths.

 

We continue to write the SKS story

We are very pleased to announce the second step of our succession plan. Karl Steiner, owner and founder of SKS AG, is retiring completely from the operational business after 40 years in management. He will remain with SKS as Chairman of the Board of Directors with his great experience in an advisory capacity.

Ms Valerie Steiner will take over the position of Managing Director from July 2021. She has already been in the business for 11 years and has been responsible for the company's finances and personnel for a long time. Ms Steiner was able to ideally prepare for the position as CEO thanks to this experience.

Together with all members of the executive board, Valerie Steiner will continue to lead SKS AG in the spirit of Karl Steiner and accompany the company into a modern, digitalised and sustainable future. The focus is on ensuring that SKS AG remains a valuable partner for our customers, suppliers and employees at a high technological level.

We are already looking forward to continuing our good cooperation with you and would like to thank you for the great support we receive from you time and again.

Best regards
Your family Steiner

Marcel Krapf - Longest serving employee retires

At the end of February 2021, our valued employee and friend Marcel Krapf officially retired after 39 years!

He joined SKS AG on 1 November 1982 as Karl Steiner's first employee and has experienced all phases and times of the company with him. From the beginning, our "Mäse" was always a loyal, eager employee and an absolute team player. From his passion sport "football" he knows that you can only win as a team. He has therefore always ensured good cohesion in the tool shop. Even in difficult times, he let the coach in him and motivated the employees. We are very grateful to Mäse for this and for his always good performance.

He also became a family friend during this long time and it is always nice to chat with him about God and the world. The nicest compliment he gave Karl, however, was when he once said: "You know, Kari, the SKS is also my company!

Fortunately, Mäse Krapf will stay with us for a while after his official retirement. He would like to continue supporting us on a 60% part-time basis until he can finally start his journey in Asia after Corona.

We thank Mäse from the bottom of our hearts and wish him all the best for his new phase of life.

Communication about the succession plan of SKS AG

We are very pleased to announce our new management structure. After 40 years, Mr. Karl Steiner will pass on the management of SKS AG to his successor this year. Ms. Valerie Steiner will become the new CEO from July 2021.

We are convinced that with the new organization we can guarantee a successful takeover.  The primary goal is that we continue the company SKS AG in a similar style and with the same philosophy as it was built up and lived by Karl Steiner.

Our management has consisted of Karl, Valerie, Michael and Lilian Steiner together with Christoph Weber, the operations manager, for quite some time. As of January 1, 2021, Ms. Valerie Steiner assumed the role of Deputy CEO. She will continue to be the overall head of finance, human resources and the administration department. Valerie Steiner will take over the management of SKS AG from 1 July 2021. Furthermore, as of January 1, 2021, Mr. Roger Zweifel was newly integrated into the Executive Board in the position of Head of Production Engineering. Michael and Lilian Steiner will retain their responsibilities as Head of Toolmaking and Head of Sales respectively.

Karl Steiner will remain as CEO until June 30, 2021. He will then withdraw completely from the operational business, but will remain with SKS AG as Chairman of the Board of Directors in an advisory capacity with his extensive experience.

We are convinced that with this expanded management team, SKS AG can continue to operate in a similar style and with the same philosophy that Karl Steiner established and lives by today. The primary goal is to maintain our good relationships with our customers, suppliers and other stakeholders.

Thank you very much and best regards
The Steiner family
