Over the last 25 years, BÜHNEN GmbH & Co. KG has very successfully become a specialist in hot-melt adhesives. Our strength lies in being able to offer our customers comprehensive solutions to all kinds of complex applications. The company wants to keep this success story going well into the future, and must thus ensure that the rising challenges are taken into account, including at an HR level.
One very important driving force behind the BÜHNEN success story is Hans-Gerhard Hartje, who has been onboard and successfully managed his sales team for almost 40 years.
Mr. Hartje transferred his operational responsibility to his successor, Jan Hunke, on 31.03.2018, and will continue to be on hand to advise Mr Hunke until 30.06.2018.
The management board threw a small party to sincerely thank Mr Hartje on behalf of the workers and shareholder for the outstanding services he has rendered for the company. BÜHNEN would certainly not have been able to achieve the strong market position it holds today without Hans-Gerhard Hartje.
Mr Jan Hunke has also been acting as an additional managing director at BÜHNEN alongside Mr Gausepohl since 01.04.2018. In doing so, he has taken on Mr Hartje’s tasks, and additionally runs the Sales and Marketing division. Mr Hunke has many years of experience in the hot-melt adhesive industry, making him the ideal candidate for this role.
