With effect from 1 March 2021, the Supervisory Board of OAS AG appointed Senator (ret.) Martin Günthner to the post of the Deputy Chairman of the Board of Directors. As a member of the Board of Directors, he is responsible for the areas of strategic corporate development and new markets, which are important for the company. At the same time, he is responsible for communication.
Otto Anton Schwimmbeck, the company founder and Chairman of the Board of OAS AG, explains: "I am pleased to be able to gain in Martin Günthner a competent leader for OAS AG. With Martin Günthner, we are counting on being able to grow further and continue the strong development of the past years. He ideally complements our management team."
Martin Günthner states that he is looking forward to the new challenge within a competent Board of Directors. "OAS is one of the many owner-operated hidden champions in Bremen with highly committed employees."
In the last two years already, OAS AG has steadily expanded its powerful team and there are now 250 employees within the group of companies working at the locations in Bremen, Augsburg, Berlin, and Bochum. The reason for this is the growing business areas. Especially the field of yard management flourishes and thus drives the positive business development forward.
For almost 40 years, the OAS AG with headquarters in Bremen has been an ever growing company. The wide-ranging portfolio extends from the implementation and planning of entire production plants, including weighing equipment, to software solutions for process control. The focus of entrepreneurial activities is mostly on the construction and chemical industries, the paint, lacquers, and varnish industry, the steel, food and luxury food industries, paper and cement plants, as well as waste disposal and recycling companies.
The good operating grade mainly results from diverse national and international large-scale projects in the fields of plant engineering and yard management. As a specialist for yard management, control of incoming lorries, and dispatch automation, OAS AG has developed customer-specific and standardised automation solutions for an efficient processing of plant-logistic processes to dispatch transports by lorry, train, and sea for over 25 years now.
OAS AG has specialised in the interplay of machine and plant engineering as well as the materials-handling technology with process control technology for bulk materials and liquid media. Whether it is about a new building or a carefully thought out expansion or modernisation: OAS is the specialist for individual and expandable lines. Through its wide-ranging portfolio of IT solutions, the company combines both, hardware and software, whilst positioning itself on the market as a holistic innovation partner for process solutions.
Renowned regional companies, such as Roland Mills United in Bremen, GTF Freese, Azul Kaffee, DAW or Flügger, trust in the expertise of the company. The company entered international terrain with the successful realisation of projects in Singapore at Evonik, in China and Kazakhstan.
With the expansion of the Board of Directors, OAS is counting on the continued positive development and is looking forward to new impulses as well as business opportunities that can be developed together as a team.
