Adrian Keppler appointed CEO of EOS

Dr Adrian Keppler, the new CEO of EOS GmbH


EOS GmbH, Krailling, Germany, has appointed Dr Adrian Keppler to the position of CEO and Speaker of Corporate Management at EOS GmbH with immediate effect. In his new role, Keppler is now responsible for implementing the EOS growth strategy.

Dr Hans J Langer, founder of EOS, stated, “I am very happy to see Dr Keppler taking on this new challenge. Even today, we can take pride in the fact that EOS continues to perform according to plan and is growing quicker than the market as a whole. With his wealth of experience in entering new market segments, Dr Keppler is the right person to lead EOS GmbH into a successful future and continue developing it within the EOS Group.”

Langer is handing over leadership of EOS GmbH and, as CEO & Chairman of the EOS Group, will increasingly dedicate his efforts to strategically expanding and developing the EOS Group in its entirety.

Together with Dr Tobias Abeln (CTO) and Eric Paffrath (CFO), Keppler heads up the operational management at EOS GmbH. A new member will be appointed to his previous management position as CMO of EOS GmbH. In the interim period, however, Keppler will fulfil both duties.

Regarding his new function, Keppler stated, “I wish to thank the Langer family for entrusting me with this new position and I look forward to the task ahead. Our goal is to continue building on our leading market position and make a key contribution towards digitalisation in the context of Industry 4.0.”

“The market for Additive Manufacturing offers a great deal of potential for the future. We will support a continually growing number of customers from a broad range of industries and fields of application in integrating industrial 3D printing in existing manufacturing environments,” concluded Keppler.
