Management change in Peters’ laboratories”
In October 2016, Dr. Manfred Suppa, Head of Research and Development for many years, worked his last regular work day at Peters. Since 1998, he had been responsible for the development of many a high tech coating for electronics. As a speaker and technical consultant he was, and still is, demanded and renowned internationally. In this function he also wrote the book „Conformal Coatings for Electronics Applications“ which is officially recognised as a comprehensive technical reference book.
Nevertheless, he will continue his consulting activity and support the R&D Department thanks to his extensive technical knowledge, besides writing more chapters to the reference book and representing Peters at special events in Germany and abroad.
His deputy for many years, Dipl.-Ing. Detlev Schucht, who is known to many of us as a competent and solution-oriented specialist, has been appointed to become his successor. In his position as Head of the ELPEPCB Products Research Group he has acquired a very good reputation among PCB manufacturers and OEM companies mainly through premium Elpemer solder resists.
He is assisted by the new Deputy R&D Manager and long-term Research Group Manager Dipl.-Ing. Johannes Tekath who, in his capacity as Innovation Manager, was mainly involved in the research activities on conductive inks and thermal interface pastes. He now focuses on very new and innovative products in our appealing 3D/ink jet lab.
This way, with its team of 30 excellently trained and very experienced employees, Peters Research GmbH & Co. KG is well-prepared for the future.
