New Managing Director at LBHChange of management at LBH, based in Hausruckviertel, Austria.
As of autumn 2022, Kurt Kirchgatterer is the new Managing Director of LBH GmbH, a producer of custom-made industrial components based in Wolfsegg am Hausruck in Upper Austria. Christian Greifeneder, the previous Managing Director, will be remaining with the company and heading up the Sales department. LBH GmbH is part of the Scheuch Group and has around 60 employees.
The new Managing Director Kurt Kirchgatterer (54) lives in Timelkam and started working at Scheuch headquarters in Aurolzmünster in November 2021, which gave him the opportunity to familiarize himself with many areas of the individual Scheuch Group production facilities and gain an overview of the company. With all of the experience he has gained throughout his career – including his previous work at Lenzing AG and the 17 years he spent at Schatzdorfer Gerätebau GmbH & Co KG (16 of them as Managing Director) – Kirchgatterer is perfectly equipped to take on the management of LBH.
“I am looking forward to this new challenge and plan to take a responsible approach to the future, continuing on the same course that has brought the company success in recent years while driving it forwards with a focus on innovations.
New production technologies and the associated digitalization will play a key role in ensuring that we can keep supplying our customers with crucial components from LBH.
Thanks to the outstanding LBH team, I am feeling positive about the future,” says Kurt Kirchgatterer.
