Arburg GmbH + Co KG, Lossburg, Germany, has announced that as of June 1, Martin Baumann — a former executive at Maag Group Americas, Eagle Rock, Va. — will head Arburg Inc., Rocky Hill, Conn., as its new managing director. He succeeds Friedrich Kanz, who set up the U.S. subsidiary and has retired after more than 23 years with the company.
