Movecat, the globally renowned specialist for stage kinetics from Nufringen in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, announced personnel changes. Andrew Abele, founder of the company, is moving from the Movecat management to the LIFTKET Hoffmann Group, where he will assume technical management responsibility as CTO. Movecat is part of this group of companies.

Andrew Abele stated, „It is a great pleasure and honour for me to assume this immensely important position for the entire LIFTKET Hoffmann Group. At the same time, however, it is also a commitment to achieving the goals we have set ourselves and to promoting and strengthening the successful course we have taken so far.“

Andrew Abele is taking over responsibility for the development of new kinetic solutions in the areas of stage and studio up to market maturity and will cooperate closely with the technical manager of LIFTKET as well as the central purchasing department. He will also represent the group in forums, standards committees and associations nationally and internationally.

Andrew Abele’s new function will focus on integrating the Group’s newly developed technologies into the market. Furthermore, the acquired know-how from the stage segment will also be applied to the industrial applications of LIFTKET products in the future in order to further expand the market position achieved in this market segment.
