With over 4,000 employees, TYROLIT is one of the world’s largest grinding technology companies. The successful economic positioning and stable financial situation are a good time for a change at the helm of the company.
Dr. Christoph Swarovski already declared a year ago that he would be stepping down from the executive board in the first quarter of 2022 after 20 years in the company’s management. However, he will continue to support the company as a member of the advisory board: “I would like to thank all employees and partners for the successful years in which TYROLIT has developed into one of the world’s most successful market providers. I look forward to remaining associated with TYROLIT as an active member of the advisory board.” Thomas Friess will take over the position of Chairman of the Executive Board on 1 January. The international orientation, continuity at all locations and the development of future industries will remain the focus of the family-owned company.
