Steffen Herter leads R+W Group
R+W has achieved continuous growth in recent years. In order to continue this, the management team has now been strengthened. Steffen Herter aims to expand international sales and the product range for couplings.
Steffen Herter has already seen a lot: As a business consultant, he was primarily involved in mechanical and plant engineering, later taking over responsibility as Director of Operations at a leading company in the field of drive technology.
Since February, he has been a member of R+W's management team with Rüdiger Faustmann and Dr. Christian Potthoff-Sewing. One goal is to optimize processes and strengthen cooperation within the group.
In addition, international sales and the product range will be expanded. R+W supplies bellow, elastomer, lamina and gear couplings with a few millimeters in diameter up to safety couplings with a diameter of around one meter.
R+W drive elements are used in numerous applications – worldwide and even beyond, for example on the ISS. They equalize a possible offset between the motor and the driven unit and transmit the torque – or decouple it within milliseconds to protect against overload.
