Hendrik Johannink takes over the chairmanship of the industry association from Klaus-Uwe Reiß.

Hendrik Johannink, CEO of Ringoplast, was unanimously elected as the new Chairman of the Board at the general meeting of pro-K langlebige Kunststoffprodukte und Mehrwegsysteme e.V.. He succeeds Klaus-Uwe Reiß, who held this office for seven years. "I would like to thank Klaus-Uwe Reiß for his great commitment to pro-K. Under his aegis, a decisive course was set for the future viability of the pro-K and its member companies, which I can build on excellently as his successor. His extraordinary personal commitment following the sudden death of our Managing Director Ralf Olsen also deserves special mention," said Hendrik Johannink on the change at the top of the association. At the top of the agenda for the pro-K and its partner associations are the topics of energy supply, the EU packaging regulation (PPWR) and the PFAS regulatory procedure, said Johannink in an interview after his election on current association topics (in German), future projects and challenges facing the plastics processing industry. The companies were concerned that plastics are still not treated without prejudice and discrimination in the political debate. Other important topics, especially in the long term, would be the use of AI and the exchange of information on the state of the art, possible areas of application and best practices in companies. The ongoing shortage of workers would also continue to occupy the industry.
The pro-K Board of Directors continues to include Jürgen Schultz, bekuplast GmbH (Deputy Chairman), Manfred Zorn, Zorn GmbH (Deputy Chairman), Dirk E. O. Westerheide, Kavalkade GmbH, Florian Helmich, Röchling Maywo GmbH, Markus Höchli, Argolite AG, Matthias Honeck, SALECT GmbH, Rüdiger Köhler, Georg Utz GmbH, Frank Reininghaus, Schoeller Allibert GmbH, Dr. Michael Schlipf, FPS GmbH, Eric Schönel, SIMONA AG, Michael Witte, OBUK Haustürfüllungen GmbH & Co. KG and Lisa Kraft-Scheiderer, PHI Technik für Fenster und Türen GmbH (Treasurer).
