New top three at AP&S - expansion of the management team at the beginning of 2021


In addition to Alexandra Laufer-Müller, Tobias Bausch and Tobias Drixler are now also responsible for the business of the wet process equipment manufacturer from Donaueschingen-Aasen as managing directors.

"I am very pleased about the expansion of the management team," says Alexandra Laufer-Müller, who founded AP&S International GmbH in 2003 together with shareholder Horst Hall and has now been at the helm of the company as managing director for more than 18 years. "In recent years, the company has developed very well. The workforce has grown steadily. With the expanded management team, we would like to continue to drive this growth. Both colleagues who have been appointed to the management team come from our company. They bring valuable experience, the necessary expertise and the best knowledge of our target markets, customers, products and corporate culture," Laufer-Müller continues. 

As Managing Director, Tobias Bausch will in future be responsible for Marketing & Sales, Product Management, Process and Product Engineering, and Mechanical and Electrical Design. The married family man has been with AP&S since 2007. In 2015 he took over the position as Sales & Marketing Director, then in 2019 he became Vice President Sales & Marketing and authorized signatory.  

Tobias Drixler, who has been with the company since 2006, will be responsible for service, after sales, production and commissioning as managing director. Following his mechanical engineering studies, he first worked in mechanical design and technical sales, both of which were also at AP&S. In 2016, he took over the responsibility as Director After Sales & Service and then in 2019 the position as Vice President After Sales & Service and authorized signatory.

Thus, both have experienced and helped shape the development of the company pretty much from the very beginning. Both emphasize that they are looking forward to their new tasks as managing directors and very much appreciate the trust placed in them by the shareholders.  

"I am convinced that with the expanded management team, AP&S is excellently positioned to master future challenges, further expand our market position and secure the successful future of the company," Laufer-Müller concluded.
