The Pirelli plant in Breuberg, Germany is considered one of the company’s leading sites for the production of ultra-high performance tyres, and to cement the factory’s position a new investment is being made in equipment and facilities. Through this investment of an undisclosed sum, the tyre maker is setting up a new rubber compound processing facility in Breuberg.
Pirelli has named Michael Wendt the head of its sales and production business in Germany. He takes over the position of chief executive officer at Pirelli Deutschland GmbH today, succeeding Frank J. Delesen. The tyre maker reports that Delesen has left the company due to personal reasons.
