GERMANY • IST Metz GmbH is taking the growing business with LED UV systems into account. Following the acquisition of the majority interest in Integration Technology Ltd. in May, the company recently reorganized the management board with the aim to put a greater focus on technological development.

Christian-Marius Metz, grandson of deceased company founder Gerhard Metz and previous Head of the Central Area Operations & Services, was appointed Chief Executive Officer. Holger Kühn was made Managing Director Sales. He has been part of the company for 17 years in various functions in sales, most recently as Head of the Central Area Sales. Dr Robert Sänger will complete the management board from the beginning of next year as Managing Director Technology. Having been Head of Development at the subsidiary eta plus electronic GmbH, he will now join the parent company. Dirk Jägers, previous Managing Director of IST Metz, left the company.

The UV market is changing: Besides the classic UV medium pressure lamps, in recent years the curing of inks and varnishes by means of UV LEDs has been established. This has even opened up whole new business areas, e.g. in the industrial joining technology. Offering both types of UV systems, IST Metz has even further expanded the LED business this year. Apart from the market launch of its own high-performance LED products, the acquisition of the majority interest in the British UV systems manufacturer Integration Technology Ltd. in May brought an additional gain in expertise in this field.
