Change of Management at DIOSNA Dierks & Söhne GmbH

Osnabrück, 17.04.2018 -  On May 1st, 2018, Henrik Oevermann will become the new CEO of DIOSNA Dierks & Söhne GmbH. He succeeds to Dr. Wolfgang Eißer (65) who will have his official retirement at the end of April 2018.

After 20 years in charge of the company, Dr. Wolfgang Eißer is leaving as an experienced and well-versed industry expert who has led the company very successfully with great engagement and high identification. Dr. Eißer has made a significant contribution to the on-going increase in turnover, the development into an international leading company and the expansion of the business units. He will have an advisory function on the supervisory board of the French holding company LINXIS for another two years.

Henrik Oevermann (40) becomes the new CEO. He has been working for DIOSNA since 2011, currently as the CFO and Head of Bakery Division.

„I am very pleased that we can fill the managing directorship from among our own ranks“, says Dr. Wolfgang Eißer. „That is how we ensure the continuity of our successful business policy and our resolute market orientation in the long term.“


In 1885, Friedrich Dierks and a partner founded the company for agricultural, domestic and dairy equipment in Osnabrück. At that time only a craft business, DIOSNA is today an internationally successful company.
DIOSNA - Dierks & Söhne GmbH operates successfully in two business units:
  • Machines for the food industry
  • Machines for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry
The focus in the food industry is the bakery division. From the smallest handcraft mixers to industrial fully automated large-scale plants – DIOSNA offers solutions for various ways of preparing dough. By taking over the pre-dough specialist Isernhäger GmbH, DIOSNA solves all the important processes of dough production.

Mixing, granulating, coating and drying are the main segments within the second DIOSNA business segment. From small laboratory mixers to complete production plants, this business unit provides solutions for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries as well as for the cosmetic and food industry.

DIOSNA is certified to DIN ISO 9001. This ensures high quality standards for products and services that DIOSNA is continuously documenting and improving.


Modularity in Laboratory Scale

The dynamics of the world market proves more and more that companies have to be flexible in their production. In addition to quality, numerous factors like rebuilding times, flexibility of processes and batch sizes or the data collection play an even bigger role.

The rapid and flexible reaction to complex demands is the main focus of the focal topic “Flexible Production” in this year’s ACHEMA. Equipment in a modular construction offers the possibility to switch between different processes. Especially for the development of new recipes modularity will be unavoidable in order to still being competitive on the market.
This is the exact point for the laboratory equipment Midilab RC by DIOSNA Dierks & Söhne GmbH to demonstrate its strength. It has, like the smaller version Minilab RC, a modular construction that offers a rapid change between a fluid bed and a tablet coater module. Because of the use of different sizes of product bowls and drums, the batch size can be adapted ideally to various processes. A swiveling and tilting operator terminal with stainless steel housing allows a flexible adjustment for the operator. The basic unit comprises the air control and regulation technologies that are needed for all of the processes. Furthermore, the front side is designed as a work bench to provide suspensions or to put down accessories like a balance.

The picture is completed by the variety of processes. While sugar and film coating can be done in the three different drums of the coater module, the fluid bed module enables efficient granulation and coating via top-, tangential- or bottom spray in four different product bowls.
