Schaltbau Holding AG: Bode Group strengthens management team with Uwe Gerber as new COO


- Uwe Gerber appointed Chief Operating Officer (COO) at Gebr. Bode GmbH & Co. KG in Kassel with effect from 15 February 2020

- Bode Group's seasoned management team now complete and with clear responsibilities

Munich/Kassel, 10 January 2020 - Uwe Gerber has been appointed Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Gebr. Bode GmbH & Co. KG with effect from 15 February 2020. The Bode Group has thus bolstered its management team with a further highly knowledgeable expert.

"With Uwe Gerber, we are very happy to have an additional highly regarded sector expert as team player on board. Together we intend to boost the profitability of Bode's manufacturing plants and operationally safeguard our growth strategy at the same time," said Volker Kregelin, Chief Officer Mobile & Stationary Transportation at Schaltbau Holding. "We now see ourselves as ideally equipped to expand our business activities with door systems into the automotive sector as well."

As Chief Operating Officer, Uwe Gerber ideally complements the existing Bode management team, consisting of Dr Jörg Willert (Managing Director Road Vehicles), Thomas Giebisch (Managing Director Rolling Stock) and Gerhard Knöbel (Managing Director Finance).

In more than 20 years of relevant professional experience, Mr Gerber initially acquired extensive practical knowledge at all levels of production in an international environment, including the positions of design engineer, project manager, head of prototype construction and plant manager. He was then responsible for the plants in the USA, Mexico and China including logistics in North America. Apart from ABB, the most important professional stations in Uwe Gerber's career include the automotive supplier Behr and Mahle, where he was most recently global COO of MAHLE Industrial Thermal Systems GmbH & Co. KG, responsible for coordinating the company's plant managers worldwide as well as for global process planning.

Furthermore, his vocational training as a mechanic, advanced training as a mechanical engineering technician and a degree in industrial engineering give him a very broad base of practical and theoretical knowledge. "With its strong international brand presence for reliable and innovative door systems and its three manufacturing sites in Germany, Poland and Turkey, the Bode Group is an ideal working environment for me to secure the success of this dynamic corporate strategy in operational terms, too," Uwe Gerber commented. "A positive performance culture with enthusiasm to work in line with a best-practice approach is important to me personally. That's why I'm looking forward to this new challenge and the opportunity to work together with the entire Bode team."

Bode is a globally leading supplier of innovative door and boarding systems for trains, buses, commercial and electric vehicles and the number one in Europe. The company's largest business field is currently the rail sector, but it also intends to expand its automotive capacities significantly going forward.

Aves One AG: Kursziel 13,60 €

Die Aves One AG ist auch in der Corona-Krise als Bestandshalter von langlebigen Logistik-Assets mit langfristigen Mietverträgen gut aufgestellt. Das Unternehmen hat als Guidance einen Umsatz und ein EBITDA mindestens auf Vorjahresniveau verkündet. Unseres Erachtens sollte dies auch ohne Zukäufe gut machbar sein, da die im abgelaufenen Geschäftsjahr 2019 erworbenen Assets bereits zu einer höheren Umsatzbasis führen sollten. Auf Basis unseres DCF-Modells haben wir ein Kursziel in Höhe von 13,60 € ermittelt und vergeben ein KAUFEN-Rating.
