OLEDWorks, headquartered in Rochester, N.Y., has announced the appointment of Wolfgang Goergen as the Managing Director of OLEDWorks GmbH. Goergen steps into the role previously held by Eric Meulenkamp who will now “…serve on OLEDWorks' Scientific Advisory Board…” and “…continue to push OLED technology forward in the marketplace.”

OLEDWorks is the only OLED light engine and panel manufacturer in the U.S. The company was founded by many of the pioneers in the OLED (organic light-emitting diode) industry. In addition to its Rochester headquarters, it also has production facilities in Aachen, Germany.

According to the press release, Goergen will oversee strategic growth and development of OLEDWorks for new and emerging markets. He has more than “…20 years professional experience in engineering, project, and account management in the semiconductor, equipment manufacturing, and organic electronic industries.”

"Wolfgang was closely involved with the development of equipment and systems of OLEDWorks' state-of-the-art OLED manufacturing facility in Aachen, Germany, making him a natural fit for a seamless transition from Eric Meulenkamp,” said David DeJoy, CEO of OLEDWorks, in a prepared statement. “We are very grateful to Eric Meulenkamp for his leadership and vision for assisting in setting up OLEDWorks GmbH and disentangling it from Philips. We look forward to Wolfgang's leadership and expertise to champion the continued and accelerating growth of OLEDWorks GmbH.”
