Pintsch Bubenzer, a manufacturer of high performance disc and drum brakes for severe duty applications, has named Daiel Hoffmans, global sales director mining. Hoffmans will be based at headquarters in Germany but will lead a global team, as the company looks to further raise its profile in the Americas and other mining hotbeds around the world.

Pintsch Bubenzer offers a variety of products that were originally renowned for use with high duty cycle container handling equipment at ports and harbors. However, it has successfully expanded into mines, wind energy, and the industrial crane market in recent years.
