Wipag: Jens Kaatze new Managing Director

Jens Kaatze takes over the role of Managing Director of Wipag with immediate effect.

In more than 20 years, Kaatze has built up strong strategic expertise in an international environment in various management positions at Covestro. He has excellent knowledge of the global and especially also the European plastics market.


"Jens Kaatze is a proven visionary and networker who will use his extensive wealth of experience to drive the implementation of Wipag's ambitious objectives", says Philip O. Krahn, CEO of the Otto Krahn Group, to which Wipag belongs. "We are looking forward to the cooperation and are convinced that together with Thomas Marquardt, the long-time co-managing director, we have put together a powerful management team for a successful future of Wipag."

"One of the megatrends in our industry is a functioning circular economy, which I, as a family father, see as a challenge for society as a whole. On the way to a more sustainable future and reduced CO2 emissions, plastics will make a significant contribution", says Jens Kaatze. "I look forward to shaping the company's course together with my colleagues at Wipag."
