JUKI Automation Systems GmbH appoints Milan Zourek as Head of Sales Europe. Milan Zourek has been working at the European headquarters of the leading Japanese SMT production line manufacturer for ten years. Most recently, he was responsible for managing the Northern Europe sales region. In his new position, Milan Zourek will assume overall sales responsibility for the EMEA and CIS markets.

With more than two decades of experience in the electronics industry, gained at manufacturers such as Panasonic Factory Automation and Hitachi High Technologies, Milan Zourek is the ideal candidate for this position. “We are pleased to have been able to win Milan Zourek for this position. JUKI’s strength lies not least in its corporate culture, in addition to its more than competitive products. Our predominantly medium-sized customers appreciate the family-oriented JUKI approach. We see ourselves not as a supplier but as a partner. Against this background, filling this key position from within our own ranks was particularly important to us and we are convinced that Milan Zourek will continue to successfully drive forward the optimization of our overall sales strategy,” explains Yamazaki Hiroaki, President of JUKI Automation Systems GmbH based in Nuremberg. Expansion and further optimization of the distribution network, opening up new markets and strengthening the current sales team are important topics that the new sales manager will drive forward, according to the company.
