Mestermann will adapt Mahlo to current market trends and keep the company on the course for success with his long international sales and marketing experience, his pronounced technical understanding and his profoundmarket and product knowledge. Mahlo has positioned itself successfully on an international basis as a leading company for sophisticated solutions in developing and manufacturing machines and systems for the textile, coating, foil and paper industries, so a perfect base was created to further develop and lead the company.
