New Management

To all customers, suppliers and partners


Improve the existing and create the new with passion and drive!


Dear Sir, dear Madam,

Everything is in motion – including our company and employees. Motion is always accompanied by change. One such change affecting our management board took place on 1 June 2018. Mr Erich Himmler, founder and owner of KA-TE AG, has placed his great responsibility for KA-TE AG in new hands. However, Erich Himmler will not leave the company entirely, but will continue to provide us with his familiar and prudent advice and support on a low-key basis as well as accompanying current projects. We will therefore continue to benefit from his wealth of long-standing experience in our many fields of activity.

The supervisory board has gained Edgar Bruhin, a proven and innovative visionary, as the new CEO of KA-TE AG. Edgar Bruhin will take on his role as CEO of KA-TE AG on 1 June 2018.


Edgar Bruhin has a broad education in technology and business management. In recent years he has worked for renowned international enterprises in the fields of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and robotics. He has developed a broad network and has an impressive track record thanks to his wealth of management experience in the development, production and sale of investment goods.


Edgar Bruhin is ready to take on this significant role of responsibility with motivation and the respect it deserves. The supervisory board and the employees of KA-TE AG have every confidence in the competence of the new CEO and wish him  success and energy for his new function in the interest of the company’s sustainable ongoing development. We hope you will also place your trust in Edgar Bruhin and look forward to continuing our cooperation with you as a partner, customer or supplier.
