Andrea Taschini has been appointed general manager of Sogefiâ€™s new Aftermarket Filter Division in a move that signals the companyâ€™s intent to take a bigger share of the market.
Taschini, who has held senior aftermarket positions at companies including Brembo and Bosch, will have full responsibility for Sogefiâ€™s worldwide IAM business, including the implementation of the new Aftermarket Filter Division organisation.
He will place particular emphasis on enhancing the companyâ€™s logistics network as well as looking at the aftermarket growth strategy.
Explaining, Marko Wowcyzna, sales and marketing director said: â€œSogefi has earned and sustained its market leadership by ensuring we are always firmly focused on filtration excellence, both at OE level and to our aftermarket customers.
â€œBut the aftermarket is a huge and growing part of our business, and as such it is vital that we evolve our company culture and structure.
â€œThe appointment of our new Aftermarket Filter Division General Manager is tangible proof that [we are] becoming even more focused, flexible and accessible for our aftermarket customers.â€
