Change of Management

Where common paths end, new paths open up


Dear Business Partners,

Today, we would like to inform you that our long-standing Managing Director, Mr. Joachim Buchen, will retire on Dec. 31st, 2022. Joachim Buchen first joined KLEIN as an electrical engineer in 1986. After the spin-off of KLEIN Anlagenbau AG, he switched to sales, which he shaped for many years by his in-depth product knowledge and his closeness to our business partners. Since 2012, Mr. Buchen has been responsible for Sales and Technology as Managing Director. Especially in this activity he has played a major role in the company in recent years. We are very grateful to Mr. Buchen for his excellent contribution to the success of our company. For his retirement, we wish him good health and all the very best.

Effective 01.10.2022, the Supervisory Board appointed Dr. Jens Krallmann the Managing Director Sales and Technology. At the same time, Dr. Krallmann will succeed Mr. Buchen as Managing Director of our subsidiary KLEIN Stoßwellentechnik GmbH. Dr. Krallmann received his doctorate from the TU Braunschweig in the field of mechanical engineering. Since 2005, he has gone through various stations at a medium-sized supplier of mobile working machines. Most recently, as Vice President of a business unit, he was responsible for sales sizes in the high double-digit millions.

Dr. Krallmann has a wealth of experience in technical product and process development, sales and strategic corporate planning. He will lead the company together with the Managing Director, Mr. Thorsten Brandt.

We look forward to working together and wish Dr. Krallmann all the best and much success for his work.

Dr. Krallmann shall be pleased to meet you personally on the next occasion:

Dr.-Ing. Jens Krallmann
Mobile 0151 54059224

Looking forward to a continuation of our trustful cooperation.


Best regards

KLEIN Anlagenbau AG
