Maik Ott is the new managing director of Fehr Group AG

Last year, we were delighted to inform you about the future of Fehr Lagerlogistik AG and are pleased that the
70-year history, started by Hans Fehr and continued by Marcel Lehner over the last 35 years, has a guaranteed path for the future with the joining of Fehr Lagerlogistik AG and OttComputer GmbH.

As you already know, since 2012, Fehr and OttComputer have cooperated very closely through the development of the FehrWMS warehouse management system, which led to the joint venture Ott Warehouse Management Systems GmbH. Not least because of this, a close friendship has developed between the Ott and Lehner families.

Through this connection, important strategic decisions for Fehr Group AG have been made in collaboration for many years. Maik Ott was not only regularly present at Fehr Group’s strategy meetings, he has also been a valuable advisory board member at Fehr Warehouse Solutions Inc. for several years.

The intense year with the coronavirus pandemic has now encouraged us to implement a long-term planned strategy even sooner. Our primary objective is to provide you with a future solution based on a stable foundation. Fehr Group and OttComputer Group coming together forms the basis for this, which will be amplified in our economic interdependence.

In connection with this, Maik Ott has been the new managing director of Fehr Group AG and all subsidiaries in Germany and abroad since December 1, 2020. Together with Thomas Lehner as his deputy, they form the executive management of Fehr Lagerlogistik AG. This not only means that the immediate future of the two companies is assured for you, it also paves the way for the long term.

Moving the two companies closer together also offers new opportunities regarding digitalization for many existing and future customers. Fehr and OttComputer are approaching this opportunity together with our combined strength and are looking forward to being able to present even more individual solutions in the future.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have placed your trust in us over the last 70 years and have helped us develop into the company we are today. We look forward to new and challenging projects with you as we head into the future.
