GERMANY, Schwäbisch Hall. Ishida GmbH is under new management: since end of January 2020 Oliver Blaha has been responsible for the business of the packaging technology manufacturer in Germany and Austria.
During his long industrial career, Oliver Blaha has repeatedly demonstrated management and sales competence and successfully developed the units entrusted to him. Most recently, the North German was with Crown Gabelstapler GmbH & Co. KG, a leading manufacturer of industrial trucks, as regional manager responsible for Southern and Eastern Germany.
Oliver Blaha is approaching his new task at Ishida with great enthusiasm and aims to develop the company into the market leader in Germany over the next few years. An important element in this is more customer proximity and the expansion of the sales and service organisation. "For example, we will significantly strengthen Ishida's Hamburg location, as many of our customers in the food industry are located in northern Germany. Together with the headquarters in Schwäbisch Hall, we will be even more efficient and closer to the market in the future," Oliver Blaha announced.
Oliver Blaha also likes to push projects in his private life. For example, the family father volunteers as the chairman of a sports club and is involved in a citizens' initiative for village development.
