Gerd Jegodzinski appointed new CEO of TLT-Turbo GmbH: A breeze of fresh air for global expansion and technological innovation in the industry

TLT-Turbo GmbH, an international pioneer in the manufacture of fans for mining, tunnel and industrial applications and a leading player in the field of mechanical vapor recompression (MVR), is pleased to announce the appointment of Gerd Jegodzinski as its new CEO, effective January 4. Gerd Jegodzinski succeeds the previous CEO Matthias Adamy.

With a solid foundation in mining, tunnel and industrial fan design, TLT-Turbo GmbH has been at the forefront of innovation and has expanded in recent years, particularly in the area of Mechanical Vapor Recompression (MVR). With this strategic move, TLT-Turbo GmbH is positioning itself as a comprehensive solution provider for industries seeking advanced and sustainable ventilation and compression solutions.

The entire team of TLT-Turbo GmbH would like to thank Matthias Adamy for his extraordinary commitment. After eight years as sales and division manager, and finally as managing director, he is stepping down from his position as CEO of TLT-Turbo at his own request in order to concentrate on his private life.

Gerd Jegodzinski brings extensive experience and expertise to his new position as CEO. This was significantly shaped during his many years with the American Aleris Group. During his time at Aleris, he held various positions, including Head of Finance for the China region. His extensive know-how, which he acquired during his many years of work in China, represents a significant added value for TLT-Turbo GmbH, where he has been successfully working as CFO since 2022.

Throughout his career, Gerd Jegodzinski has developed a deep understanding of the industrial sector, which now forms the basis of his strategic vision for the continued growth and success of TLT-Turbo GmbH.

Gerd Jegodzinski’s leadership style is perfectly aligned with TLT-Turbo GmbH’s commitment to innovation, sustainability, global growth, and the development and delivery of customer-focused solutions in all business areas.

Xiongfei Zhao, who has been Managing Director of TLT-Turbo GmbH for the past four years, expressed his delight at the new appointment: “We are delighted to have Gerd Jegodzinski as the new CEO of TLT-Turbo GmbH. His extensive experience and strategic vision will undoubtedly contribute to the continued success and growth of our company.

Gerd Jegodzinski is excited about his new role and states: “I am honored to take on this responsibility and look forward to working with the experienced and talented team at TLT-Turbo GmbH and the international subsidiaries in the USA, India, South Africa, China and Australia. Together we will continue to build on the company’s established heritage and develop new business opportunities in global markets for the diverse applications of our fans.” In addition to the industrial, mining, and MVR sectors, these include power generation, wind tunnels, and tunnel and metro projects.

Visit of the Rhineland-Palatinate FDP Parliamentary Group to TLT-Turbo in Zweibrücken

As part of the annual summer tour of the Rhineland-Palatinate FDP parliamentary group, FDP delegates led by Justice Minister Herbert Mertin, Chairman of the Parliamentary Group Philipp Fernis, Deputy Parliamentary Group Chairwoman Cornelia Willius-Senzer, Deputy Parliamentary Group Chairman Steven Wink, and State Secretary of Justice Matthias Frey visited TLT-Turbo at its Zweibrücken site. The summer tour takes place every year in the first week of the parliamentary summer recess and enables the members of parliament to come into direct contact with companies and social institutions throughout Rhineland-Palatinate. Each day of the tour is concluded with a public event.

Part of the FDP delegates together with representatives of TLT-Turbo, f.l.t.r.: Matthias Kraemer, Dr. Sebastian Fleder, Florian Neff, Marco Weber, Philipp Fernis, Herbert Mertin, Matthias Adamy, Cornelia Willius-Senzer, Matthias Frey, Steven Wink

Mr. Zhao briefly welcomed our guests and kicked off the event. Thereafter, Mr. Adamy introduced the company and provided information about our product range and application areas, our international locations and our corporate structure – also with regards to PowerChina and the cooperation.

Besides a general introduction of the company, Mrs. Pirmann reported on HR issues, especially on the topic of visa procedures – an important issue for us when sending employees abroad or to us in Germany. She gave three examples of the many challenges and hurdles involved in these processes. The delegates showed great interest in these first-hand reports, and a lively discussion ensued on possible improvements and offers of assistance. In this context, Steven Wink (Deputy Chairman of the Parliamentary Group) offered his support in protracted cases.

Dr. Fleder reported on the challenges of obtaining funding for research projects. Although Zweibrücken is classified as a “structurally weak region”, which would suggest that obtaining funding would be easier, he explained that this is not the case. He outlined different funding options, while emphasizing the many hurdles that must be overcome along the way. Despite the options available, the application process is often tedious, time-consuming, and unfortunately, often with little chance of success. The presentation led to a lively discussion in which it was hoped that bureaucratic hurdles would be removed and that digitization would be promoted in order to facilitate access to funding in the future.

The visit also included a tour of our site, led by Mr. Neff:

This included a presentation of our test stands in the test hall and the various test procedures that are conducted. Next up was the Blue Hall where Mr. Herz presented the MoJet fan. A fog machine was used to fill the hall with smoke to demonstrate the MoJet’s rapid
extraction. This not only illustrated the performance of the fan, but also provided a clear visualization of the airflow lines.

At the end of the event, Philipp Fernis, Chairman of the Parliamentary Group, expressed his gratitude on behalf of all delegates for the warm welcome and the informative presentation of the company’s activities. The delegates were especially impressed by the demonstration of the MoJet and the presentation of one of our products in action. We were also pleased with the visit of the FDP delegates and are confident that this paved the way for future effective political contacts.

Promoting young talent with StudiumPlus

TLT-Turbo in Bad Hersfeld places emphasis on dual study program

Bad Hersfeld. Three generations of StudiumPlus – This is what you will find at TLT-Turbo, one of the world’s leading suppliers of technologically advanced industrial fans and ventilation systems, at the company location Bad Hersfeld. Roman Lenk, Head of Logistics, is a StudiumPlus graduate in Management and Logistics, and both he and the company are very impressed with the StudiumPlus program. Milena Fladung and Alea Wolf, both StudiumPlus graduates, work with Lenk in the company’s logistics department. Roman Lenk is convinced: “With the dual study program, we can develop specialists who will stay with the company in the long term.”

Lenk himself is the best proof of this: in 2013, he started his bachelor’s degree at the partner company TLT-Turbo in Bad Hersfeld as the company’s first dual student. After completing his studies, he stayed with the company and in 2020 took over as head of the logistics department with 21 employees. “If I hadn’t already gotten to know the company so well during my studies, I wouldn’t have been able to take on this position so quickly,” Lenk says.

As one of its tasks is to promote young talent, TLT-Turbo has sent Milena Fladung, the next student, to the Bad Hersfeld campus. The 21-year-old was intensively supervised by Lenk during her project phases in the company, graduated as best of her year and has now taken over the process and project management for the logistics department. She is also the process owner for a new IFS implementation, “a very important interface”, as Lenk points out. Alea Wolf also sits in the office with the two of them. The 22-year-old is now in her fourth semester of studying Logistics Management and is once again being mentored by Ms Fladung.

“This is a good example of how a company can work together with StudiumPlus over a longer period of time to specifically develop junior staff,” Campus Director Prof. Dr. Fabian Tjon says. It is not important to send students every year, but to send them when you need a specialist or manager in your company.

Roman Lenk agrees: “We don’t train en masse, but in a very targeted way, and during the project phases we look to see which area the student is best suited for.” Offering prospects and a future in the company is one of the key factors in retaining young talent. The large network of StudiumPlus, with around 1,000 partner companies, is also of interest to TLT-Turbo, even if it does not send students every year. “In addition, the cooperation with StudiumPlus and thus with the is very positive for the company’s image,” he is convinced.

Milena Fladung and Alea Wolf both appreciate the fact that the company had a precise plan for their practical phases – and that they got to know it from the ground up. “I started in the warehouse, got to know the employees and quickly felt part of the team,” Wolf says. Now she appreciates the fact that she can not only continue to accompany her practical projects, but also work on other projects to get to know as many aspects as possible – and that her projects, such as reducing packaging costs, are of great importance to the company. For Roman Lenk, it is essential that the students take on tasks that are actually implemented.

“Many companies don’t take the time to invest in young talent,” Lenk says. At the same time, it is in their own hands to promote young talent in a very targeted way. TLT-Turbo employs StudiumPlus graduates not only in logistics but also in construction. Milena Fladung and Alea Wolf are also enthusiastic about the dual study program. That’s why they both act as school ambassadors. They visit schools to inform them about the opportunities offered by dual study.

TLT-Turbo GmbH is a leading supplier of turnkey ventilation and process fans. Their solutions are used worldwide for conveying air and gases, cooling, smoke extraction, and a variety of other industrial processes. Headquartered in Zweibrücken, Germany, the company employs approximately 380 people, of which approximately 140 are located in Bad Hersfeld, Germany, where the production, logistics, and quality assurance facilities are located.

StudiumPlus is the dual study program of the Technische Hochschule Mittelhessen and the Competence Center Duale Hochschulstudien. The program includes a full bachelor’s or master’s degree at Hessen’s largest university of applied sciences, combined with intensive practical experience. The main campus is in Wetzlar, with six other locations, including the Bad Hersfeld campus.

TLT-Turbo to Exhibit at Cheese Con 2023

TLT-Turbo will be representing the next generation of dairy industry equipment at the 2023 Cheese Con, Co-hosted by the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association and the Centre for Dairy Research. The event takes place from 4 – 6 April 2023 at the Alliant Energy Centre in Madison, Wisconsin.

Cheese Con is an annual event attracting over 3,000 dairy industry leaders, suppliers, and marketers who come together to share information about the latest in cheese technology, workforce, whey opportunities, product safety, marketing and dairy exports. The Conference will feature impactful seminars, networking events, and its largest-ever tabletop exhibition hall, featuring the industry’s most trusted supplier partners – under the banner of this year’s theme: Global Ideas for Dairy Processors.

“CheeseCon is the only event that combines CDR’s world-class technical expertise, a 75,000-square-foot exhibit hall, and ample opportunities for connection – all with a unique focus on dairy processing,” says WCMA Events Director Judy Keller.

TLT-Turbo representatives Jon Hampshire, John Landis, and Mario Schmidt will be attending the event and are looking forward to showcasing TLT-Turbo’s range for Mechanical Vapor Recompression (MVR).

TLT-Turbo’s exhibition will focus on the MVR fan range. According to Mario Schmidt, Head of the MVR Fans business segment, the features of TLT-Turbo’s MVR fan, such as the lower maintenance requirements and the introduction of hybrid ceramic bearings, will definitely attract the attention of dairy operations.

The implementation of hybrid ceramic bearings is a key differentiator of the TLT-Turbo MVR fan. The hybrid ceramic bearings used in TLT-Turbo MVR fans are life time greased and can be operated for up to 10 years without requiring maintenance. To enhance this benefit for clients, TLT-Turbo introduced an additional device to the fan’s design that allows for the bearing to be re-greased from the outside to further simplify maintenance and to increase the fans’ service life.

The fact that the TLT-Turbo MVR fans do not require an oil change is highly valuable to operators in the dairy, food and beverage and pharmaceutical industries. “In a clean environment, not having to introduce chemicals such as oil to the environment when maintaining crucial equipment is highly valuable. In addition, this makes our fans kinder to the environment as well. Other fans on the market consumer around 40 to 60 litres of oil per year whereas our fans consume 60 to 120 litres over a ten-year period,” explains Schmidt.

High motor speeds, a wide range of optimized impellers and the allowance for high temperature and pressure increases complement the lifetime greased hybrid ceramic bearings to ensure that clients benefit from the enhanced performance and efficiency that they have come to expect from TLT-Turbo products. These factors allow for operation of the fan below critical speed which ensures both reliability and safe operation.

TT-Turbo’s MVR offering has been expanded to include low-flow and medium-flow ranges. The medium and low flow MVR ranges both offer the same technical features and benefits, however the key differences are that low flow range is characterized by having a significantly smaller and more compact size while still delivering higher efficiencies while the medium range fans are able to handle larger mass flows at high efficiencies.

TLT-Turbo’s exhibition is located at Stand 1222. Media and visitors are invited to the stand for comments and information on TLT-Turbo, current MVR and dairy industry ventilation trends and event feedback. Jon Hampshire, John Landis, and Mario Schmidt will be present to answer all questions.
