On September 1 2018, AUMUND Fördertechnik GmbH appointed Dr.-Ing. Pietro de Michieli as its new Managing Director, to focus on equipment sales, spare parts, after sales service and PREMAS® 4.0, at the AUMUND headquarters in Rheinberg/Germany. Pietro de Michieli brings with him vast international experience in technology for handling different bulk materials. He has excellent know-how in capital equipment and complex engineered solutions in many key industries, such as cement, mining, fertiliser, steel, power, ports and terminals.
Before joining AUMUND, Pietro de Michieli was Managing Director of OMG MGM Cranes (Bedeschi Group). Prior to that he was Chief Operating Officer of Bedeschi S.p.A. and member of the board of directors responsible for the business unit bulk handling, marine logistics and mining and minerals, with a particular focus on sales, marketing, design, manufacturing, purchasing and project management. Earlier in his career he was projects director with ENDECO Engineering Design Construction S.p.A. and project manager at DANIELI S.p.A., both of which gave him a solid foundation in turn-key industrial contracts and experience in the execution of steel mill, melt-shop and bulk material handling projects in various countries all over the world. Since January 2018 de Michieli has been a member of the board of directors of PEMA (Port Equipment Manufacturers Association) – a forum and public voice for the global port equipment and technology sectors. He will support a bid for membership of PEMA by the AUMUND group of companies, on the merits of their wide range of conveying and storage solutions for bulk materials in ports and terminals.
