Maxam strengthens management team
Maxam Tire, the Luxembourg-based manufacturer of industrial, construction and OTR radial tyres, has announced a key appointment to its management team. Peter Kraus (47) joined the company at the beginning of September as business development manager for Germany, Switzerland and Austria, responsible for the entire Maxam product range.
Kraus is no stranger to the tyre industry, having spent six years working at one of the major wholesalers in continental Europe. While there, he oversaw the introduction of new brands and of a project for retreading truck tyres.
He also has extensive knowledge of the tyre industry in his new geographical area as he worked for Bandag for six years, with responsibility for Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
Peter Kraus is relishing the challenge of working with Maxam’s key dealers and introducing the range of products to end users. What attracted him to Maxam in the first place? Said Kraus: “Firstly, the quality of the products is outstanding and secondly, the team spirit at Maxam is phenomenal – everybody works together to make sure that the customer not only gets a great product, but also the best possible service.”
