Ralf Junker is handing over the role of president of the BOMAG Group to Dr Ingo Ettischer. With extensive experience in the manufacturing sector, Dr Ettischer has held the post of managing director chief operating officer at BOMAG since July 2023. After 36 years at BOMAG, Ralf Junker will retire but continue to advise the FAYAT Group.

Before joining BOMAG in 2023, Dr Ettischer spent 21 years in management at Mercedes-Benz AG in the truck, van and car divisions in various global executive and production roles.  

“BOMAG is set to continue to grow internationally in size and portfolio. We are confident that Dr Ingo Ettischer, with his experience, knowledge and energy, will boost the company’s growth and lead BOMAG successfully into the future,” said Jean-Claude Fayat, owner and president of the FAYAT Group.

“I am very excited to step into Ralf Junker’s shoes and lead the BOMAG Group going forward,” comments Dr Ingo Ettischer on his new role. “Together with a strong management team and a highly skilled workforce, we will steer BOMAG into a successful future. The close relationship with our customers, our innovative strength based on knowledge and commitment, and our enthusiasm for our machines and technologies will be decisive in this respect.

By focussing on our customers, innovative products and an internationally oriented production network, we will position ourselves competitively as a technology leader and continue to grow in the future.”

The outgoing president, Ralf Junker, has held various positions in production at the Boppard site before taking over responsibility for production at BOMAG’s worldwide production sites. In 2001, he became a member of the BOMAG executive board and was appointed managing director in 2009. He has been president of BOMAG since 2017.

“Ralf Junker has significantly shaped the company over the years. Particularly noteworthy is his central role in the reorganisation of BOMAG, especially during the integration process into the FAYAT Group. His leadership, commitment and extensive expertise have always contributed to putting BOMAG on a strong growth trajectory, with sales now exceeding €1 billion,” said Jörg Unger, president of the FAYAT Road Equipment Division.
