KEBO AG, a manufacturer of high-performance injection molds based in Neuhausen am Rheinfall (Switzerland), has made a change in its management as of October 1, 2022. Long-time CEO and partner, Gerold Keller, who successfully led the company for over 30 years, has handed over the overall management of the company (CEO) to Alexander Anders. Johannes Strassner is now responsible for Sales and Marketing (CSO) and in this function becomes a member of the Executive Board. The two new Board members bring several years of management experience to the company from various positions in mold making as well as injection molding machine industry.
Gerold Keller will remain with the company and will continue to look after selected key accounts. In addition, he will remain on the management board in a supporting role as owner. Finance and Human Resources will continue to be managed by CFO and partner Daniel Bodenmann. Thus, the two shareholder families will remain in the company.
With this personnel change, KEBO AG is taking an important step towards securing the long-term future of the family-run Swiss medium-sized company. "With Alexander Anders and Johannes Strassner, we have been able to attract two personalities with industry and management experience to our company," says Gerold Keller. "This enables us to take in new wind in challenging times and strengthen our position in the market." Daniel Bodenmann adds, "We want to remain independent in the future. A stable ownership structure is important for our employees, customers and partners."
For 43 years, KEBO AG has been consistently and enthusiastically responding to the needs of demanding, international customers. Competence, tradition, high-end technology as well as personal customer support ensure optimal solutions for complex challenges regarding high-performance injection molds with own hot runner technology for medical, pharmaceutical and laboratory applications as well as high-end thin-wall applications.
Three employees celebrate their company anniversary: 10, 15 and 40 years of service! Our assembly employee Kurt Bai (second from right) was an employee of the first hour in 1979. With a short interruption, he has always worked for KEBO AG! The company founders Charles Bodenmann and Alfons Keller had the right instinct to hire Kurt after he had completed his apprenticeship as a toolmaker! Experience & apprenticeship: that is KEBO's recipe for success, with employees of many years standing and our own innovative training. We are proud of you!
Although the sun did not shine on this day, we were able to enjoy our annual summer party in our application technology center!
In order to meet the high demands of our customers, we need not only qualified personnel but also the appropriate equipment. We have supplemented our production equipment in CNC cylindrical grinding and Q-inspection...

Shortage of skilled workers especially in the technical professions, probably an issue for many Swiss companies...
Since 4 weeks we have support. Our new 2nd year apprentices (toolmaker and design engineer) are with us in our company after completing their basic training at the WIBILEA training centre and are helping with our daily work! We look forward to their cooperation and wish them an exciting and successful apprenticeship!

40 years of KEBO as a reliable partner whenever high-output injection moulds are needed. This fills us with joy and pride. In 2019 we celebrate this anniversary not only with our loyal fellow workers but, when the opportunity arises, like to clink glasses also with you, our dear customers and business partners.
9 injection molding machines have never been seen in the premises of our testcenter. In addition to our four own machines, we are currently allowed to carry out FAT and validation processes on five customer machines. Thanks to our customers!
