"The colleagues Härtel and Niebauer particularly represent the plastic sectors of the two automotive manufacturers in the FSK and excellently complement machine manufacturers, system houses, and processors on the FSK board, commented the re-elected FSK Chairman of the Board Albrecht Manderscheid (Cannon Deutschland GmbH) about the two new members of the board. The FSK board has thereby been extended by one board member. Dr. Michael Begemann was no longer a candidate. For Chairman Albrecht Manderscheid it was the eighth re-election. He has been Chairman of the FSK for 14 years. Also re-elected again at the FSK general meeting were Vice Chairman Klaus Pontius (Heywinkel Holding GmbH), Financial Consultant Manfred Werner (Sekisui Alveo GmbH) as well as the other members of the board Gerhard Hinzsch (Hinzsch Schaumstofftechnik GmbH& Co.KG), Dr. Thomas Mack (Rühl Puromer GmbH), Ralf Schmidt (Hübner GmbH), Dr. Peter Gansen (Otto Bock GmbH) and Dr. Alfred Link (Sonderhoff Chemicals GmbH). Martin Dietrich (Getzner Werkstoffe GmbH) and Rolf Apfeld (PDR Recycling GmbH & Co. KG) were elected as account auditors. The election of the board took place during the FSK conference in Stade.
