Ulrich Strieder becomes new Operations Director in Zweibrucken

On December 3rd, 2018, Ulrich Strieder started his work as the new Operations Director for the two Terex Cranes plants in Zweibrücken – Dinglerstraße and Wallerscheid. In this new role, he will be reporting directly to Terex Cranes Germany Managing Director Thomas Schramm.

When tackling his new duties, Ulrich Strieder will be able to take advantage of his extensive experience managing operations for a number of important companies: After obtaining a master’s degree in engineering from the renowned RWTH Aachen University, he started his career with the steel tube manufacturer Mannesmann Röhren-Werke in 1991. In 2000, he joined Kronenberg GmbH as a technical director, followed by a move to MAN Commercial Vehicles in 2003 as a production director. Finally, Ulrich Strieder worked as an operations manager at Schütz GmbH & Co. KGaA.

“I’m confident that with Ulrich Strieder at the helm, we’ll be able not just to continue the positive streak we’ve had at our plants, but to boost it even further. Mr. Strieder will be using his decades of experience to drive us forward in new ways, and accordingly will be an enormous asset to our company. I’m tremendously happy that we were able to get a new team member who not only has ample experience, but has also had a storied and impressive history of success throughout his career,” Thomas Schramm comments.

Ulrich Strieder is joining Terex Cranes at a point in time in which the restructured Zweibrücken and Wallerscheid plants have solid workloads and are well-positioned to take on the future. “I’m looking forward to the job and the challenges it will bring. I’m also confident that if we focus on our customers’ needs, we’ll be able to get stuff moving in the right direction,” Strieder says.
