Realignment and consolidation

DUKTUS and KEULAHÜTTE Vertrieb become
vonRoll hydro (deutschland) gmbh & co. kg


As of 1 January 2020, the Swiss company vonRoll hydro AG will bundle its competencies in Germany. The former sales companies of VONROLL (ex. AWP), DUKTUS and KEULAHÜTTE are merged into vonRoll hydro (deutschland) gmbh & co. kg. From January 2020, this company with its headquarters in Wetzlar will be the sole contact for the company’s trading and sales activities. The proven and established brands DUKTUS, KEULA and VONROLL will remain as product brands and will continue to be produced at the Wetzlar and Krauschwitz sites. The production site in Prenzlau will also remain, where special valves of the VONROLL brand will increasingly be manufactured in the future.

“With the new company, our customers now have a single point of contact for all our products from the vonRoll Group. The Swiss company vonRoll hydro ag took over Duktus in 2016 and Keulahütte in 2018. By integrating the activities into a single sales company, we now have a very good solution. The distribution of the German activities will be streamlined and synergies will be exploited in a targeted manner. In this way, customers and trade benefit from reliable, fast and flexible order processing and deliveries. This makes us the only German manufacturer able to offer complex solutions from a single source,” says Stefan Neuhorn, Managing Director of vonRoll hydro (deutschland) gmbh & co. kg.

Dipl.-Ing. MBA ETH Zurich, Stefan Neuhorn has 8 years of industry experience. He has been Managing Director of Duktus GmbH since 01.03.2019 and will in future be responsible for the realigned and renamed company vonRoll hydro (deutschland) gmbh & co. kg.

He will be supported by Andreas Lotz (Sales Manager), Roger Distler (Head of Internal Sales) and Oliver Jäger (Head of Technology) as well as the regional sales managers Alexander Bauer (South), Florian Häusler (Middle) and Karl Wilhelm Römer (North). The ZEROWATERLOSS Champions Dennis Göttling (South), Uwe Strich (Middle) and Manuel Görzel (North) will now support the regions in the field of sensor technology to meet the coming requirements of the water supply.
