Aumund Fördertechnik GmbH has announced the appointment of Dr Michael Mutz as the new Head of Division for Minerals and Mining. Dr Mutz, who is based in the company’s Rheinberg offices in Germany, has been carrying out the role since April. The new Division Head descends from a mining family and gained considerable experience in the exploration of solid raw materials, oil and gas through work on projects with Roland Berger, CPRM and ThyssenKrupp whilst studying geology. Dr Mutz previously worked at Hazemag, focusing on international sales and the coordination of key accounts.
Commenting on the appointment, Aumund Managing Director Jörg Hoffman stated: “We are thus strengthening the team and, in a dedicated manner, we are advancing the business segment expansion in this prospering market.”
As raw material demand increases, Aumund has identified mid and long-term opportunities for process and conveying equipment technology, particularly in the mining sector.
“The good reputation of the Aumund Group and the decades-long successes in the cement, power and metallurgy sectors are a solid foundation to also gain a foothold as a supplier in the very service-oriented mining business,” said Dr Mutz.
