Management change in the Bosch plant in Hatvan

Hatvan – On the first of January 2017, Volker Schilling will be handing over as commercial plant manager of Robert Bosch Elektronika Kft. of Hatvan to Wolfgang Stein, who comes to Hungary after serving as senior vice president, commercial plant manager of Reutlingen Plant 2 in Germany. The technical side of the plant remains in the hands of technical plant manager Roger Seemeyer. Volker Schilling has headed the Bosch plant in Hatvan since August 2011 and will be continuing his career in Germany, where he will be leading the worldwide Audit organization of the Bosch Group, reporting directly to the executive board. One of his focus areas of responsibility will be the Internet of Things (IoT) and its Services (IoTS) and its impact on business processes and cyber security.

Personal commitment
Since 2011, Volker Schilling has led the largest manufacturing facility of Bosch Group’s Automotive Electronics division worldwide, and at the same time has done a lot for education, particularly for dual training at secondary level and subsequently at college and university levels. During the 5 years, the plant has been growing substantially by a broad variety of new high-tech products and therefore significant increase in sales and employment. The Hatvan Training Center, a facility that opened under his management, develops employee competences and has become a key site for practice-oriented training. Mr. Schilling has also taken an important role in developing community education at university level e.g. facilitated the opening of the Hatvan Community College. He is a committed believer in generational care, and in the last five years, the Gesztenyéskert Nursery and the Szent István Primary School in Hatvan have been renovated with support of the company. Bosch nursery and school classes have started up offering state of the art education for meanwhile more than 180 kids, and the Bosch plant provides regular financial and educational support for them. The plant has received several awards during the five years of his tenure and in autumn he was elected as Honorary Professor at the Budapest Business School. He also bears much of the credit for linking the Bosch name with the town of Hatvan.
