The Syntegon Group, a global provider of processing and packaging technology, has named Torsten Türling as its new chief executive officer. He succeeds Dr. Michael Grosse, who will leave the company by mutual agreement on October 31, 2023, following three and a half successful years as CEO.

For the next phase of the company’s development, Syntegon is strengthening its executive board with an experienced manager who will continue to drive the company's growth and innovation and will significantly reinforce its sales activities.

Türling has more than 30 years of international management and sales expertise, with extensive CEO experience at the helm of well-known companies. Most recently, he served as CEO of Nilfisk, a leading global supplier of professional cleaning equipment based in Denmark. During his tenure, he initiated the strategic repositioning of the company and achieved significant progress in growth and sustainability.

Previously, he was CEO of Ideal Standard International, where he was responsible for a successful turnaround. Türling further held various management positions at Linde AG and, as managing director of Linde Refrigeration, led its successful integration into Carrier Corp. following the spin-off. 

"Syntegon has made impressive progress as an independent company since its spin-off from Bosch. I look forward to contributing my expertise to the company and working with the global team to realize the group's growth potential. Syntegon's ability to develop customer-specific solutions is unique and its innovative range of products and services already excites customers around the world," says Torsten Türling.

Grosse has been CEO of Syntegon since 2020, and has been largely responsible for the company's successful transformation into an internationally independent company following its spin-off from Bosch at the end of 2019.

"We thank Michael Grosse for his outstanding contribution to Syntegon and wish him all the best for the future. He has steered the company safely through the pandemic and the ongoing global supply chain crisis. Under his leadership, Syntegon has made excellent progress in recent years. For the next phase of Syntegon’s development we are delighted to welcome Torsten Türling, an internationally experienced manager with proven sales expertise. With his strong focus on innovation and expansion of sales structures, Torsten will contribute to the company's further growth," says Marc Strobel, chairman of the Supervisory Board of Syntegon.
