EJP Expands Management Team Robert Jungbluth appointed as Managing Director “Technology” The managing partners of EJP Maschinen GmbH have appointed Robert Jungbluth as Managing Director “Technology”. The management team is now made up of Jacques Paraskevas (Commercial Manager and Sales), Robert Jungbluth (Technology) and Dirk Loske as Authorized Signatory. The constantly rising intake of orders for manufacturing lines involving the drawing, peeling and straightening of tube and pipes, bars and sections called for an adjustment of the company’s organizational structure and the enlargement of the management team. An example of the great demand for machines from EJP is the order for two high-capacity bright steel production lines which EJP recently received from MMK-Metiz in Magnitogorsk/Russia. This is by far the biggest project in the company’s more than 35-year history. Robert Jungbluth, a graduate engineer, has been with EJP for 22 years. As Head of Design and Engineering, he played a key role in implementing innovations such as the servo- 10 TUBE NEWS November 2017 electric actuation of drawing jaws or double laser diameter measurement in peeling machines.

In addition to these functions and building on his profound technological expertise, Robert Jungbluth is going to manage the activities of the 160 employees at the company’s four locations in Germany, Italy, China and South Korea. Jacques Paraskevas, Commercial Director of EJP comments: “Robert Jungbluth knows every detail of our machines and he is highly committed to their constant further development. At WIRE 2018 Düsseldorf, we will be presenting new products based on his ideas. Those products and systems will be able to further increase the efficiency of production at our customers’ facilities as they operate with further enhanced precision and can simplify processes.” .
