ESCATEC, the global electronic and box-build solution provider, announced recently its newly appointed General Manager (GM) and latest addition to its Senior Management Team, Lambert Schutters. Mr. Schutters assumes the responsibilities of Johan Halling, who stepped down as GM of ESCATEC Electronics and ESCATEC Medical in Penang. Mr Halling continues to support the ESCATEC Group temporarily with his invaluable insight and experience, ensuring operational continuity and a smooth on-boarding for the new GM who is reporting directly to Juha Arola, COO of the ESCATEC Group.

Mr. Schutters has joined ESCATEC from Siemens, where he held the position of Managing Director at one of their Budapest, Hungary, factories. He has over 25 years of experience in key management roles at leading manufacturing companies worldwide, including Flextronics and Phillips. He has accumulated not only leadership and business development skills, but also extensive knowledge in purchasing and supply chain management. Under his motivating leadership, manufacturing companies have achieved sustainable, highly productive and cost effective business.


“We are sad to hear of Johan’s decision to leave ESCATEC and wish him every success in his future endeavours. Moving forward, we welcome Lambert Schutters and are confident his strong focus on quality, cost, on time delivery and excellent communication will bring lasting value to our customers and to our employees,” says Juha Arola.
