VDMA Metallurgy: Till Schreiter takes over as Chairman of the Executive Board

Till Schreiter, CEO of ABP Induction Systems GmbH, succeeds Dr. Ioannis Ioannidis, who retired from active professional life at the Frech Group at the end of 2023 and is thus also relinquishing the chairmanship of the trade association.

Schreiter, a graduate engineer in electrical engineering (RWTH Aachen), has been a member of the Board of the Metallurgy Association - with its Foundry Machinery, Metallurgical and Rolling Mill Equipment and Thermal Process Technology departments - since it was founded in 2017 and brings his extensive expertise and experience from management activities in metallurgical plant engineering to the management of the association's work.

Together with his colleagues on the Executive Board, he is particularly keen to strengthen the framework conditions to ensure that the solutions with which the metallurgical machinery and plant engineering industry helps to make proven metal production and processing processes ever more sustainable can have a global impact.

"Our industry can only fully develop its potential and in particular its comprehensive decarbonization expertise if the framework conditions for a strong basis for innovative metallurgical machinery and plant engineering in Germany and Europe are right. VDMA Metallurgy offers the network and the platform to play a decisive role in shaping cross-company solutions for the central challenges of the international metals value chain."
