Bernd Jost will assume the position of Chairman of the Management Board of DiIT AG.
As of January 1, 2017, Swiss Schleuniger AG has acquired 100 percent of the shares in DiIT AG. Previously, Schleuniger had a minority stake in the company. DiIT will continue operating as a stand-alone company with headquarters in Krailling, Germany.
