Masa GmbH said goodbye to its long-standing managing director Rolf Ovesiek on 31 December 2018. Mr Ovesiek's professional biography is closely entwined with Masa. After leaving school, Rolf Ovesiek began his technical apprenticeship at Henke Maschinenfabrik GmbH (later Masa) in Porta Westfalica. He subsequently deepened his great affinity for technology by studying Mechanical Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Lemgo, where he graduated with an engineering degree in 1986.
Following his course of study, Mr Ovesiek returned to Henke Maschinenfabrik and was later entrusted with various managerial positions. As technical manager, Mr Ovesiek was heavily involved in many innovations in special plant concepts.
In the year 2000 he took over as chief executive of Masa-Henke Maschinenfabrik and was responsible for the Porta Westfalica and Dorsten locations as well as the Masa branch office in Moscow. Since 2008 Mr Ovesiek has also been a member of the executive board of Masa AG and thus responsible for sales, product development and production in the autoclaved aerated concrete, limestone block and concrete slab sectors.
Following the change of the legal form of Masa AG to Masa GmbH, Mr Ovesiek was appointed managing director in 2010, since when he has decisively helped to determine Masa's course.
The managing directors of Masa GmbH, Mr Frank Reschke and Mr Volker Zurheide, as well as the entire workforce of Masa would like to thank Mr Ovesiek for his services to the company and to wish him all the best in his well-earned retirement.
