The Voith Group has established a new division called Voith Digital Solutions. The new unit will consolidate all of the group’s know-how in the field of the digital transformation known as Industrie 4.0. The unit’s focus will be on the development of new digital business models for sectors that already exist today as well as for completely new sectors which are not yet being served. Dr. Roland Münch, who has been CEO of the Voith Hydro Group Division up until now, will become CEO of the new Group Division. Dr. Münch’s successor as Head of Voith’s hydropower division will be Uwe Wehnhardt.

Expertise related to automation, software, IT, digitisation and sensor technology that is currently covered by the Group Divisions Voith Hydro, Paper and Turbo will now be consolidated and refined in Voith Digital Solutions.

"With Voith Digital Solutions…we are systematically developing Voith to be a company that will play a decisive role in shaping the digital transformation in our sectors and markets," says Voith Head Dr. Hubert Lienhard.
