Adel Hassan has become a member of the engineering team at GOFA – the vehicles construction specialist which makes tanker vehicles.

Due to the scheduled age follow-up the previous long-term Managing Director, Heinz Janssen, transferred his management position to his successor Thilo Wenath, who has been acting for the company for almost two decades. Heinz Janssen withdrew from the operative day-to-day business in order to focus on product development and employee training. In the hiring of Mr. Hassan, GOFA has recruited another industry expert for its engineering team. From a customer’s point of view although the described changes took place in the company, a very good and stable continuity in the technical customer support has been ensured.

Mr. Hassan has lived in Goch, where GOFA is situated, for many years with his family. He has a quarter of a century of work experience in the vehicle construction sector as an engineer in an executive function with the focus on chemicals, mineral oil and bulk. He also worked for the former company Hendricks, in Goch, for many years and recently worked with Schrader Fahrzeugbau.

Thilo Wenath, technical Managing Director of GOFA, announced on the occasion of the employment of Mr Hassan, “We are glad that we could win this creative and industry-experienced employee for our company. Together with Mr. Hassan we are going to bring even more ‘horsepower’ on the road than before and consequently continue our growth process of the last years in our core segments gas, chemicals and dry bulk.“
