Crailsheim (Germany), June 2021 – His father Gerald Schubert served as Managing Director of Schubert Packaging Systems GmbH. Now the 31-year-old son Johannes Schubert is following in his footsteps. From 1 July 2021, he will take on the position of Managing Director in a major subsidiary of the Crailsheim-based packaging machine manufacturer.
For two years, he was responsible for the development of the Schubert Flowmodul as Product Manager and played a key role in its successful market launch. The Flowmodul is a product milestone in Gerhard Schubert GmbH’s history. The highly flexible and multifunctional flow-wrapping machine is used for a wide variety of products: chocolate bars, biscuits, cakes, chocolate figures, yogurt cups and even ice cream are securely packaged in a wide range of format sizes and packaging materials.
Johannes Schubert has two experienced Schubert colleagues at his side. After 16 years, Peter Gabriel has handed over his position as Managing Director of Schubert Packaging Systems GmbH to the third-generation Schubert. However, he will continue to support the Schubert successor as Commercial Director of the parent company and as a mentor, together with long-standing and experienced Managing Director of Schubert Packaging Systems Olaf Horrenberger. As of July 2021, Olaf Horrenberger and Johannes Schubert will jointly manage the Schubert Packaging Systems business.
Company founder Gerhard Schubert is delighted that his grandson is advancing to the managing director level: “I am proud of him and very pleased with his commitment. I am sure that Schubert’s third generation will continue to successfully manage our family business. I wish Johannes a good start and much success.”
