Pump Solutions Group has appointed Ueli Thuerig as president of PSG Europe. It also has named Bernhard Dicks as senior vice president of operations for the European region, in support of the recently created PSG Europe.
Thuerig was formerly CEO of PSG operating company Maag, and he will report to PSG President Dean Douglas.
PSG recently created the European unit to capitalize on its European footprint by leveraging its size, capabilities, and synergies within the region. This structure will streamline processes and share best practices in Europe, according to the supplier of positive displacement pumps.
“PSG is thrilled to have someone with Ueli’s leadership and expertise guiding PSG’s European initiatives,” Douglas said. “The formation of PSG Europe will play an important role in increasing PSG’s customer intimacy across our European operational platform, and Ueli will be instrumental in helping us achieve that.”
The organization will support manufacturing and facilities in Europe, including Auxerre, France; Grossostheim, Germany; Kamp-Lintfort, Germany; Oberglatt, Switzerland; and Rozzano, Italy. In addition, the Tianjin, China, facility will also be part of PSG Europe due to the engineering and technology alignment of the Maag Industrial Pumps platform and its screw pump technology offering.
Meanwhile, Dicks will lead a team of five general managers for each of the European facilities. Dicks has been vice president and general manager of European operations.
A part of Dover Corp.’s Engineered Systems segment, PSG’s portfolio includes global brands Abaque, Almatec, Blackmer, Ebsray, Griswold, Maag, Mouvex, Neptune, Quattroflow, RedScrew, and Wilden. PSG has operations in the U.S., France, Germany, India, China, and Australia.
