After more than 19 years at Schmitz Cargobull, Josef Warmeling, manager for international key account management has made the decision to leave Europe's biggest manufacturer of semi-trailers. The manager will remain loyal to the industry and his customers, and will join Europe's third-largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles, Kögel.
