Furnace and heat treat specialist Ipsen appoints Somary as group CEO

February 4, 2019

Ipsen International Holding GmbH, Kleve, Germany, has announced the appointment of Geoffrey Somary as CEO of Ipsen Group worldwide. Somary succeeds former Thorsten Krüger, who served as CEO from 2013-2019 and who has now moved to the company’s Advisory Board.

Since 2005, Somary has held various senior positions within Ipsen and was said to have been closely involved with customers and with team members of the company. He has reportedly demonstrated the ability to bring together employees of different cultures in a way that delivers the best possible solutions to Ipsen customers.

The Advisory Board expressed its thanks to Krüger for his contributions to the company since his appointment in 2013. It was stated that, in shifting his role from operational to advisory, he will continue to support the further development of the company.

Ipsen designs and manufactures industrial vacuum and atmosphere heat-treating systems, supervisory control systems and predictive maintenance platforms for a wide variety of industries, including aerospace, automotive, commercial heat treating, energy and medical. The group has production locations in Europe, North America and Asia, along with representation in thirty-four countries.
