Newly appointed as the Head of Global IT, Robert Kubotsch is taking on overall responsibility for information technology at Kautex Maschinenbau, one of the global leaders in extrusion blow molding machines. With this appointment, the company has filled another key position to steer and support its process of change.


Robert Kubotsch will harmonize the existing IT systems and optimize them for cooperation between the global Kautex team, customers and partners. Isolated solutions which have been used to date will be replaced with a uniform IT structure at all locations, and the availability of IT services and infrastructure at crucial points will be improved.


Robert Kubotsch previously worked for an international plant and machinery manufacturer. In this role he was responsible for the maintenance and further development of IT at various locations.

His experience of various projects across different sectors has given him a keen understanding of the business processes involved in running a machinery manufacturing enterprise, and its ever-expanding IT requirements.


Kautex Maschinenbau has been involved in a process of strategic realignment and restructuring for over two years. The company is bringing about harmonized processes and standards in line with the BeOne motto, as well as placing even greater emphasis on customer focus in all business areas. The production solutions are becoming more intelligent, modular, and flexible, and the aim is primarily to generate added value for customers.


These changes are accompanied by increasing digitalization in communication, production, and service. Data management, communication systems and comprehensive remote services place high demands in terms of the efficiency, standardization and global availability of IT. Kautex announced enhanced investment in this area some time ago while Robert Kubotsch and his team will now put the philosophy into action.


CEO Thomas Hartkämper said, “We are delighted to be able to welcome an experienced IT specialist for our global Kautex team in Robert Kubotsch. He is very process oriented and he has demonstrated what may be possible in the future."


Robert Kubotsch expressed, “IT is the backbone for changes at Kautex. It is not just a matter of providing optimal support for processes; it is also about anticipating developments. Setting the right course is an extremely challenging task. I am looking forward to playing an active role in shaping the transition at Kautex while establishing a high degree of service quality throughout the group.”
