SFS appoints new head of Riveting division

Urs Langenauer, current head of Automotive North America, is taking over management of SFS’ Riveting division. He will also become a member of the Group Executive Board of SFS Group AG, as of 1 July 2019.

After many years of service to the Riveting divison, Thomas Bamberger is to leave the SFS Group by mutual consent in order to take on new professional challenges. The Board of Directors and the Group Executive Board thanked him for his service.

Langenauer is a long-serving employee with broad management experience. He has been working at SFS since 1995 and has been responsible for the business activities of Automotive division in North America since 2013. Urs Langenauer will use his expertise and experience to strengthen the Riveting division and support it in the expansion of the fastener business.

SFS’ fastening segment was singled out for its above average performance in its 2018 financials. SFS recently acquired Pittsburgh, USA-based Triangle Fasteners.
