JHT strengthens management team for a sustainable future

As of 1 January 2024, Alexander Krause will take over the positions of Deputy Managing Director and Chief Technical Officer (CTO) at the renowned coating and mechanical engineering company JHT, which is based in Geilenkirchen, Germany. Moreover, Steffen Lambertz will head up product development at JHT as Chief Product Officer (CPO) with immediate effect.

“These changes are not only a signal for customers and partners as well as employees and their families, but also an expression of JHT’s long-term orientation,” says CEO Alexander Houben. “Both Krause and Lambertz have many years of experience in the company and a broad range of industry expertise.”

Driving the positive development of the company

Alexander Krause started out as a mechanical engineer and rose through various positions (most recently overall project manager). He has been a partner since 2020 and will now act as deputy managing director. Steffen Lambertz started out as a design engineer and became a senior project engineer in 2021. Thanks to his part-time MBA studies and personal development, he became a partner on 1 January 2024.

Founder Alexander Houben proudly emphasises that Alexander Krause and Steffen Lambertz are driving the positive development of JHT. “Everyone is optimistic and looking forward to the new tasks this year.”

Key player thanks to energy transition

The company management also sees JHT as a key player in the roll-to-roll finishing sector in the future. The energy transition is a particular focus: the demand for battery electrodes, catalyst-coated membranes and other products is constantly increasing. JHT’s machines have established themselves in these and other industries. Together with partners from industry and research, the process and system technology will be further developed and optimised in cooperation projects.
