Heidelberg has named Dr. Frank Schaum as its new Gallus labels head, succeeding Christof Naier, who left the company at his own request.
Dr. Schaum tool over the responsibility for the label division at the beginning of March this year.
Most recently, he worked for the Heidelberg Group in corporate development. His professional career was characterised by different management functions within the Heidelberg Group.
Between 2014 and 2018, he was responsible for the postpress division, among other things. All of the company’s activities relating to sheet punching, folding box gluing, inspection systems for folding boxes, as well as folding and cutting are bundled in one organisation.
Dr. Schaum started his professional career at Heidelberg in 1992 as a product developer.
“It is my goal to evolve the brand Gallus with its products and services in the growing market of label business. In doing so, we consistently will continue to pursue our way of digitisation and we will provide our customers with sustainable support in the development of their individual business models,” he said.
“We stand by our customers during the current crisis and we will do everything possible thus they can continue operating successfully in their markets.”
Gallus has production facilities in Switzerland and Germany, and Dr. Schaum said he aims to build the company in its strengths in the development, production of conventional and digital narrow-web , reel-fed presses designed for the label and packaging business.
