Experience and more management power for a stronger future

Koch is putting itself on track for the future with a bigger Executive Board. Managing Partner Jochen Koch is getting a double helping of expert assistance in the form of Thomas Voss as Sales Director and Harald Udelhoven as Technical Director.

Hemer-Ihmert. Back to a successful future – and full steam ahead with new management power. This is the philosophy at Ernst Koch GmbH & Co. KG as it restructures its Executive Board. With these three leaders at its helm, the company aims to build up its innovation leadership in the global market.


Experienced sales expert Thomas Voss returned to Koch on 1 September 2016, after four years away. Based on his years of experience in the wire machine industry – 34 of them at Koch – he will be aiming to strengthen the company’s sales activities as Sales Director. “Many of our customers and partners have long known and appreciated Thomas Voss’ outstanding technical expertise,” says Managing Partner Jochen Koch. “I’m delighted to have him back with us at the company.”


Harald Udelhoven will complete the team as the new Technical Director on 1 October. The 55-year-old has worked for many years in leading electrical engineering businesses. Harald Udelhoven studied mechanical engineering specialising in construction technology, as well as business management. Most recently he worked as Head of Global Quality Management and Head of High-Vacuum Systems product lines. Jochen Koch: “Harald Udelhoven has a massive amount of knowledge in different disciplines that will provide our company with some important momentum.”


Experience, innovative strength and a broader outlook: this to Jochen Koch is the “best mix” by which the company will be able to tackle the challenges of an increasingly complex global market. Thomas Voss, who has already represented management in the sales area, adds: “With the three of us at the helm and our workforce by our side, we aim to strengthen Koch’s leading market position in the areas of wire-drawing technology, quality and service. We’re looking forward to a successful future together with our customers.”
