Schütte Names CEO for North American Operations

Jeffrey Reinert

Schütte has announced the appointment of Jeffrey Reinert as CEO for the North American operations of the company. Schütte supplies a range of multi-spindle machine tools and grinders for production work in various sectors of the metalworking market, including medical, orthopedic, tooling, contract machining and more.

Reinert brings over 30 years of related experience to the position, having been involved with all aspects of manufacturing, sales, marketing and management in the machine tool industry. Reinert was most recently the president and CEO for North American Operations at Index, another leading machine tool builder. Reinert held that position for nine years. While at Index, he nearly doubled the sales of the company, reorganized the service, parts and training departments, plus opened a new office in the emerging Mexican market for the company. He was also previously the president of Machine Tools of Indiana, a dealer company he founded in 2001 and ran successfully for seven years.

Reinert attended Vincennes University, Valparaiso University and Purdue, where he studied electrical & mechanical engineering.

In commenting on his new position, Reinert said, "Schütte has a solid reputation as a builder of top quality, multi-spindle machine tools and, based on that foundation, we plan to accelerate the company's growth curve to take us into more markets with a decidedly aggressive posture, including greater visibility in the media, at shows and through industry association participation. Complementing this sales growth strategy will be a buildup in our service, engineering and customer support programs." Reinert also noted the long-range plans for Schütte, which include upgrades to the current facility in Jackson, MI, with more machines on the floor for demonstration of the company's capabilities, testing and production scenarios for enhancing the customer experience.

"My personal goal is to bring Schütte to the forefront of the industry, in both the multi-spindle and grinding technology arenas. We can shine as a great team, with excellent machines backed by a high-quality group of dedicated individuals. It is an exciting time and I look forward to meeting the challenges."
