As of May 1, Wolfgang Steinwender took over as CEO of the successful Austrian plastics recycling machines manufacturer. His predecessor Josef Hochreiter will devote more time to the further development of Next Generation Holding. Despite the worldwide uncertainties due to Covid 19, NGR is convinced it can continue the successful course supporting the plastics industry during its transition to the circular economy.

Since joining the company in 2014, Wolfgang Steinwender has been serving as Managing Director of the North American office in Atlanta, Georgia, where he headed the market penetration and customer support of the Americas.

Together with CTO Thomas Pichler and COO Gerold Barth, Wolfgang Steinwender will focus on the further development of the circular economy. NGR offers a full range of post-consumer, post-industrial and PET recycling equipment.

“About 400 million tons of plastics are being produced per year worldwide. It is key to put an emphasis on end-of-life plastics. Mechanical plastics recycling conserves resources protects the environment and improves the CO2 balance. It is the key to sustainability. Therefore, it is crucial to achieve the highest possible quality of recycled materials by using innovative technologies and thus continuously increase the amount of recycled material in end products”, says Wolfgang Steinwender.

Josef Hochreiter has been heading NGR for 12 years and grew it into one of the leading companies in its industry. Starting in May, he will focus on the further development of Next Generation Holding and, according to Josef Hochreiter, will continue to develop this global technology provider to support the transformation from a linear to a circular economy in plastics following the mission “Working for a better future”.
