Highcon (Yavne, Israel) has announced that its shareholders have appointed Amichai Steimberg as Chairman of the Board. Amichai retired in March 2020 as the Chief Executive Officer of Orbotech, a leading global supplier of yield-enhancing and process-enabling solutions for the manufacture of electronics products. In his 28 years there, Amichai worked at all levels of the organization, including as CFO for nine years (2000-2009), and COO and President for 10 years (2009-2019). From February of 2019 until his retirement, Amichai led Orbotech through its acquisition by KLA. “Highcon is well positioned to provide innovative digital production solutions for the large and growing packaging industry,” said Steimberg. “I’m excited to work closely with the talented management team. Together with strong support from our committed strategic investors, we’ll provide Highcon’s customers with tools designed to address their efficiency, sustainability and production challenges.”
Shlomo Nimrodi, Highcon CEO, added: “I’m pleased to welcome Amichai to our Board of Directors and look forward to his insights from 30 years of experience across many disciplines – including strategy and finance – to propel Highcon forward. The continued commitment of our Board, especially in these uncertain times, has been greatly appreciated – and we intend to keep delivering on the proven promise of our revolutionary technology.”
Benny Landa, Founder of Indigo and the Landa Group, pioneers in digital printing and one of Highcon’s leading strategic investors, also commented on the appointment: “Amichai is our choice to partner with management as it transforms Highcon into an industry category leader. His prowess in building multinational capital equipment companies is a perfect fit for our long-term strategy. His experience, together with the leadership of Highcon’s CEO, Shlomo Nimrodi, give us confidence that Highcon will continue its strong growth trajectory.”
