Novomatic Implements New Business Structure

Austrian gaming supplier and operator Novomatic AG is continuing the transformation begun last year by restructuring its sales and production departments. All sales units are, effective immediately, bundled under Jakob Rothwangl’s management, and the entire Production Department is now centrally managed by Walter Eschbacher.

According to the company, the focus of the changes is on increasing efficiency and “amplifying synergy potential.”

“We are using this pandemic to improve internal processes, and are restructuring the Production and Sales Departments as part of the transformation process we began last year,” said Novomatic Executive Board Member Ryszard Presch. “We are pleased to have Jakob Rothwangl and Walter Eschbacher, both experienced, long-term managers at Novomatic, take over leadership in these important segments, and are certain their work will guarantee continuity and efficiency.”

The Global Sales Department will, in the future, focus on new customer acquisition and increasing international networking activities, while also improving upon the already excellent customer care for existing internal and external customers. The Production and Logistics Department will, for the first time, consolidate the Production, Purchasing, Logistics and Custom Manufacture Departments for the electronics, joinery, printing and plastics manufacturing segments, allowing for faster, more efficient processes.

“I would like to say thank you for this wonderful new challenge and for the trust placed in me as I accept this opportunity to reorganize

and optimize Group Sales,” said Rothwangl, who is vice president of global sales for Novomatic AG. “The top priority is to maximize customer satisfaction by developing and selling high-quality products and services perfectly matched to the needs of our customers and their markets.”

Eschbacher, director of production and logistics for Novomatic AG, added, “The new Production & Logistics Department consolidates closely connected segments into a single department in order to react even more quickly to changing market requirements. My focus will be on establishing new production processes and making use of synergy potentials in order to shorten delivery times and therefore guarantee that the company and its Austrian production locations remain competitive.”
