Schubert North America has announced the appointment of Dominik Streicher as its Chief Operating Officer for its Canadian entity Schubert Packaging Automation in Mississauga, Ontario.
Dominik is joining Schubert Packaging Automation from Gerhard Schubert, the headquarters of the Schubert group, located in Crailsheim, Germany. He first joined Schubert in 2000 and has since gained more than 10 years of valuable experience in electrical engineering, before taking on his management career in sales and project management.
In his most recent position, Dominik has successfully led the global project management team of the entire Schubert group. During the last seven years he was strongly involved in projects with Schubert’s North American customers.
“On behalf of Schubert’s management team, I’m thrilled to welcome Dominik to Schubert North America”, said Hartmut Siegel, CEO of Schubert North America. “Dominik is a proven leader, whose experience in Schubert’s technology, sales and our North American customer projects uniquely positions him to take our Schubert entity in Canada to its next phase of growth.”
With a total revenue of US$73 million in 2021 and with continuous growth in recent years, Schubert North America has built a strong presence in Canada and in the US.
“I am very excited to be joining Schubert in Canada,” commented Dominik Streicher, COO of Schubert Packaging Automation. “I believe that Schubert Packaging Automation has much potential for future growth with its talented team and great customer relationships. Most of our Canadian customers are within a two hour drive from our office in Mississauga and we can be on-site very quickly.”
Among other things, the company attributes its success in North America to the local training and service program and advisory expertise at the Schubert location in Charlotte, North Carolina. With the expansion of its headquarters in Charlotte, the company is preparing to meet the demand of its growing customer base.
The new headquarters building will include sales, engineering, service, final assembly and a customer training centre. The company has invested almost tens of millions into its headquarters, emphasising the significance of the North American market over the long term.
“We are expanding our location for our North American customers,” explained Hartmut Siegel, “In addition to our new offices, an assembly hall will be built at the new location. Final assembly and commissioning for TLM packaging machines will be performed. There will be a workshop for service activities as well. In the past, customers often had to fly to Schubert’s global headquarters in Crailsheim, Germany, to accept new machine projects. In the future, acceptance of selected machines will take place directly on site in Charlotte, North Carolina.”
