REINBEK, GERMANY — F. H. SCHULE Mühlenbau GmbH, a KAHL Group company, has appointed Marius Hermes as its new managing director.

Hermes is a familiar face at SCHULE. From 2010 to 2016, the Münster native was responsible for the company’s North American market. Following a move to his training company, Peter Kölln GmbH & Co KGaA, to work in the key account management, Hermes returned to SCHULE in 2020. Until the middle of this year, he worked as a sales manager and authorized signatory.

Since September, he has been responsible for the management of SCHULE Mühlenbau together with Uwe Wehrmann, managing director of Amandus Kahl, who has been in that position since 2018.

“I would like to thank my predecessor Bernd Kruse for the intensive cooperation, and I am very much looking forward to the new challenge in the management of SCHULE and to the close cooperation with my colleague Uwe Wehrmann,” Hermes said. “Together, I am sure, we will continue to build on the company’s many years of success. With our team of experienced experts, we want to continue to be the first point of contact for our customers in the specialty milling industry. Our machines and plants stand for exceptionally high quality and reliability — values that should also be reflected in the company's manage­ment. I’m also looking forward to contributing my experience in sales and milling, as well as a wide network of contacts.”

SCHULE Mühlenbau has its headquarters in Reinbek near Hamburg and works from here with its worldwide subsidiaries and representatives. Within the KAHL Group, the company is the expert for specialty milling and builds, among other things, complete rice and oat mills as well as plants for the processing of pulses, oilseeds and special products such as bulgur, buckwheat, spelt and many more.
