Mr. Jens Mirau has been appointed president of Juki Automation Systems Europe, a growing company in the field of SMT assembly systems. Mr. Mirau has worked for Juki for 14 years. Before his promotion he held the position of Vice President of Juki Automation Systems Europe and CEO of Juki Automation Systems GmbH in Nürnberg. Mr. Mirau has extensive and highly specialised experience in the placement market. These are the best qualifications to continue successfully leading the company through the increas-ingly tough SMT market.
Mr. Mirau takes over this position from Mr. Jürg Schüpbach, who resigned as president with the acceptance of the executive committee of Juki Corporation. Mr. Schüpbach decided to leave Juki Automation Systems Europe to take up new challenges. He started his career in the pick-and-place industry with Juki placement systems more than 28 years ago at the for-mer company Zevatech.
Mr. Robert J. Black, Juki Corporation Executive Operating Officer, responsible for the market in the Americas and Europe, commented, “We thank Mr. Jürg Schüpbach for the many years of great work done on behalf of the JUKI, especially the last few years as President of Juki Automation Systems. I am confident that Mr. Jens Mirau will fulfill his new position and the responsibility that comes with it excellently.”
