Johan Goosen has been appointed managing director of Osborn Engineered Products SA. Goosen joins Osborn from Atlas Copco, where he managed Drilling Solutions and, in his most recent role of regional business line manager, was responsible for Mining and Rock Excavation Services.
During his time with the firm, Goosen exceeded financial targets despite the challenging market, and he made significant contributions to increasing the business’s market share and improving customer relations.
“Goosen has a very good understanding of our industry and its challenges,” comments Richard Patek, group president of Astec Aggregate & Mining, of which Osborn is a subsidiary. “He believes in an entrepreneurial approach to business that is founded on a customer focused philosophy. This is supported by strong leadership skills and interpersonal attributes. We are delighted to welcome him to the Osborn family.”
