Dr. Pietro de Michieli, managing director at Aumund Fördertechnik GmbH/Germany, is the new chair for equipment design and infrastructure at Port Equipment Manufacturers Association (PEMA), UK.

With the chairmanship of de Michieli the Aumund Group of companies with Aumund Fördertechnik, Schade Lagertechnik, and Samson Materials Handling is setting an important footprint in the world of ports and terminals.

“I’m delighted to chair PEMA’s Equipment Design and Infrastructure Committee,” said de Michieli. “I have an excellent contact network of people across a number of segments, so I offer an open window to different sectors. I have most experience in bulk handling – one of the sectors where PEMA is now attracting members. This is vital if we are to advance PEMA’s work on building the mutual exchange of information and learning best practice from across different sectors.

“As chair of the Design and Infrastructure Committee, my main goal is to increase the number of active members, and to motivate more passive members to be more active, so as to establish the right conditions for teamwork. As a chairman, my job is to encourage people to pull together, to work as a team,” added de Michieli.                   

In February 2019 Pietro de Michieli already took over as vice chairman of the Safety and Environment Committee. The mission of the PEMA Safety & Environment Committee is to provide a neutral information and education platform on the development and use of safer and greener technologies in the port and terminal industries. As part of this effort, the committee works with other port and cargo handling associations, as well as individual companies, to keep abreast of the latest trends and initiatives, and inform PEMA members and the wider community accordingly.
