After 35 years in the company, including 25 years as managing director, Peter D. Dornier will hand over the operational management of Lindauer DORNIER GmbH on July 1, 2024 to join the supervisory board of the family-owned company. His successor as chairman of the board of management will be Andreas Kueckelmann, who was previously technical managing director at DORNIER. He will be supported by commercial managing director Franz-Peter Matheis.
The planned change is part of a rejuvenation of the operational level aiming to make the traditional family business fit for the future. “By handing over the operational management and making the planned move to the supervisory board, I am following DORNIER’s tradition of interweaving the established with the new,” says Peter D. Dornier. “As a member of the supervisory Board, I will do everything in my power to ensure that Lindauer DORNIER remains an independent, internationally active family business and continues to operate successfully.”
DORNIER is currently realizing the largest investments in its recent company history to make the Lindau and Esseratsweiler sites fit for the future. In addition to modernizing the machinery, this also includes new photovoltaic systems on the roofs of the production halls. In the long term, DORNIER aims to cover most of its electricity requirements from renewable sources.
The investments in the new training center at the headquarters in Lindau also show that the family business is serious about rejuvenation. From 2024, up to 75 young people will be trained on 1,000 square meters as mechatronics engineers, industrial mechanics, machine and plant operators as well as commercial employees and dual university students.
