Goodyear Dunlop names new German plant managers
A new plant manager has taken charge of Goodyear Dunlop’s factory in Philippsburg, Germany. As of May 1, Klaus Happ has taken over the role from Bruno Kihm, who is now plant manager of the company’s Riesa passenger car tyre factory in the country’s east. Kihm in turn has replaced Dr. Christian Paech, who retired on May 1 after a career with the tyre maker spanning 33 years.
Happ, a mechanical engineer by profession, has held various positions of responsibility with the company during the last 21 years or so, primarily at the manufacturer’s Fulda site. Before taking over at Philippsburg he held the position of production manager at Goodyear Dunlop’s Hanau factory.
