Prinoth Group named Klaus Tonhauser president, replacing Werner Amort, who moved to the supervisory board of the company. He will also become chair of the advisory board.

Tonhauser had been CEO of Poloplast, and had served as director of Rosenbauer, a fire engine manufacturer.

“I am very happy to be a member of the Prinoth team and to be able to lead this highly regarded company,” Tonhauser said in a prepared statement. “Prinoth stands for customer orientation, quality, innovation, and sustainability—all of them characteristics with which I fully identify. Together with my colleagues, we will further shape the growth trajectory and winning path of Prinoth and take the company into the future,” he said.

Alessandro Ferrari has been named CEO for the tracked vehicles and vegetation management division. He has been a member of the board of directors since 2018 and held various positions in purchasing, operations, and sales in the past nine years. Ferrari is an active member of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), and has been serving on the ICUEE management committee since 2019 and in the Canada Leadership Group since its creation in 2020.
