Daniel Seiler has been appointed CEO of IDS Imaging Development Systems. He joins Torsten Wiesinger who remains CEO, and who has spent five years in the role.

Together with Wiesinger, Seiler will take operational responsibilities for the manufacturer of industrial cameras in Obersulm, Germany. Company founder and managing partner, Jürgen Hartmann, concentrates on facilitating the infrastructure necessary for the growth and the substantial development of the company.

Seiler joined IDS in 2005. ‘With Daniel Seiler´s extensive experience in this industry IDS gets a CEO who has been involved in IDS’ development for 10 years and has already significantly influenced the company by setting up our US business,’ says Hartmann. ‘In Obersulm he will primarily take care of the production, purchase and logistics departments and infrastructure.’

Wiesinger will now focus on the development of new products as well as on the expansion of international sales structures. ‘Preparing for further growth and building on our strengths are our tasks to continue playing a pioneering role in the market,’ said Wiesinger.

In 2014, the industrial camera manufacturer achieved a sales increase of approximately 20 per cent compared with the previous year. This year the company expects further growth.

‘With this extended managing board we are well prepared for the targeted growth,’ Hartmann said. Currently, IDS employs nearly 200 staff members and has subsidiaries in USA and Japan, as well as offices in France and in the UK. The product range covers digital industrial cameras with USB or GigE interfaces.
