Syntegon Group appoints Torsten Türling as new CEO

The Syntegon Group processing and packaging machinery technology firm has named Torsten Türling as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), taking up his post at the end of next month, reports Neill Barston.

He succeeds Dr Michael Grosse who had spent and a half successful years in the post, including recently leading the company’s major presence at this year’s pandemic-delayed Interpack event, which returned to Germany after a six-year absence.

As the business explained, its new CEO is anticipated to continue a drive towards renewed growth, innovation and sales across the business, which includes a number of machinery applications for the sweets and snacks industry.

Most recently, Türling served as CEO of Nilfisk, a leading global supplier of professional cleaning equipment based in Denmark and listed on the stock exchange. During his tenure, he initiated the strategic repositioning of the company and achieved significant progress in growth and sustainability.

Previously, he was CEO of Ideal Standard International, where he was responsible for a successful turnaround. He further held various management positions at Linde AG and, as Managing Director of Linde Refrigeration, led its successful integration into Carrier Corporation following the spin-off. He holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Saarbrücken and a Master of Management from EM Lyon Business School in Lyon.

Dr. Michael Grosse (below at Interpack) has been CEO of Syntegon since 2020, and as such has been largely responsible for the company’s successful transformation into an internationally independent company following its spin-off from Bosch at the end of 2019.

“We thank Michael Grosse for his outstanding contribution to Syntegon and wish him all the best for the future. He has steered the company safely through the pandemic and the ongoing global supply chain crisis. Under his leadership, Syntegon has made excellent progress in recent years. For the next phase of Syntegon’s development we are delighted to welcome Torsten Türling, an internationally experienced manager with proven sales expertise. With his strong focus on innovation and expansion of sales structures, Torsten will contribute to the company’s further growth,” says Marc Strobel, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Syntegon
