Reading time ( words)

Jörg Kipper, Managing Director of Festo Vertrieb GmbH & Co. KG, has been appointed as the new chairman of the VDMA Integrated Assembly Solutions (VDMA IAS) department. He succeeds Johannes Linden from PIA Holding GmbH, who resigned from the board of directors of VDMA IAS due to personnel changes and thus also resigned as chairman of the IAS. His successor Thomas Ernst, the new CEO of PIA Holding GmbH, has been appointed to the IAS board.

The board of directors of VDMA Integrated Assembly Solutions thanks Johannes Linden for his active commitment in recent years and is looking forward to a productive and successful collaboration with Thomas Ernst. Jörg Kipper is pleased to take up the work as the new chairman of the IAS and thanks for the trust placed in us: 

“The Integrated Assembly Solutions makes a decisive contribution to competitive production at the German and European location. With a high degree of automation in assembly and handling, we can counteract demographic change in the next decade. For this it is crucial that the industry deals more closely with the opportunities of digitization. The VDMA must create important framework conditions for successful implementation. As the new chairman of VDMA Integrated Assembly Solutions, I would like to actively support this, ”says Jörg Kipper.
