Change in the management of the company


Through his commitment Rüdiger Schliekmann made a considerable contribution in recent years to the establishing of IMA as one of the leading suppliers of machinery to the furniture industry. Mr. Schliekmann successfully guided IMA through the crisis of 2009 and continuously improved the position of the company in the market. He is leaving the company for personal reasons.

In future the company will be in the capable hands of Bernhard Berger and of Andreas Rinke, who has been active in the company as technical managing director since the beginning of 2014. Mr. Berger was previously managing director of IMA from 2005 to 2008. He will continue along the path that has already been taken of taking IMA further forward in conjunction with Schelling as a leading edge vendor of automated overall solutions.
