The Manitowoc Company (Manitowoc, Wisconsin, U.S.) hired Michael J. Kachmer as president of Manitowoc Foodservice Group. Kachmer takes over from Timothy J. Kraus, who retired at the end of 2006 after 18 years with Manitowoc.

Kachmer joins Manitowoc from Culligan International Company, where he held executive positions since 2000 and most recently served as chief operating officer. Culligan is a U.S. $800 million global supplier of water treatment products and services; while there, Kachmer developed and implemented programs that achieved double-digit growth in revenue and EBITDA. He also spearheaded the company's transition to Asian outsourcing and restructured the R&D program to sharpen the product development process.

"Mike brings an outstanding professional background to the Foodservice Group," said Manitowoc Chairman and CEO Terry D. Growcock. "In particular, Mike's experience in using the 'voice of the customer' process to deliver solutions to the restaurant, healthcare, and other commercial markets will add immediate value to the Foodservice Group."

Manitowoc is a diversified company with business interests in construction cranes and shipbuilding as well as producing ice-cube machines, ice/beverage dispensers and commercial refrigeration equipment.
