MD´s Message

Dear Business Partners & Friends

On December 21st Mr. Pfeiffer informed you about his intentions to take early retirement, commencing January 1st, 2016. I will take over his position as Managing Director of TREPEL Airport Equipment GmbH.

At this point I would like to thank Mr. Pfeiffer for the excellent job he has done over the years with and for TREPEL. He has made a major contribution to TREPEL’s success, positioning TREPEL as one of the market leaders for pallet/container loaders, transporters and conventional aircraft tractors. This is also reflected in a record year for TREPEL in 2015.

I am confident that, together with our extremely well organized and motivated TREPEL team, we can continue our great success and strengthen our market position.

Most of you I already know personally, but this is an opportunity to give you a short summary of my vita. I am 47 years old, a graduated industrial engineer and have been working in the GSE Industry for more than 15 years. I joined TREPEL Airport Equipment in October 2008 as Sales Director. My position as Managing Director offers me new and exciting challenges, and I look forward to mastering these together with your support and continual trust in our reputable products.

Carsten Schimkat
