Gerald and Ralf Schubert Named Chief Executive Officers at Schubert

When Gerhard Schubert presented his first hot-melt box erecting and gluing machine to the public 46 years ago, his sons Gerald and Ralf were only two and five years old, respectively. It was the beginning of a success story in many ways.

That box erecting and gluing machine was followed by a series of technical highlights including the world’s first packaging robot, Schubert’s own packaging machine control unit, the first F44 picker line and the TLM – the world’s first top-loading packaging machine installed on an assembly line. This trend has continued up to the TLM transmodule, the world’s first transport robot.

Even today, Gerhard Schubert remains a tireless and imperturbably independent pioneer. These characteristics of its founder have made Gerhard Schubert GmbH the recognised global market leader in its field. Those humble beginnings have resulted in a group of companies with more than 900 employees worldwide.

But Gerhard Schubert can be particularly proud of another achievement. His sons have been active within the company for more than 20 years. Gerhard Schubert has now appointed them Chief Executive Officers.

Gerald Schubert (48) is a father of two children with a degree in mechanical engineering. He headed up the Schubert subsidiary IPS (International Packaging Systems) before assuming the role of Schubert Sales Division Manager. Ralf Schubert (51), a father of three children, graduated in computer sciences and leads the Technical Office and Assembly Division.

This proven management team is completed by Peter Gabriel (Dipl. oec. univ.) as Commercial Director and Peter Schneider (Dipl.-Ing./FH) as the head of the Materials Management Division. Gerhard Schubert will retain his overall management role and continue to devote himself to the Marketing Department.
