“I look forward to this new assignment within the Krone Group and appreciate the trust placed in me”, says Alfons B. Veer. “Together with our highly motivated staff we are set to continue on our long-standing path of exceptional growth for decades.” Numerous investments at Dinklage and Werlte already laid the foundation stone for this.
