I am Mechanical engineer with a flair for production technology. Joined sawi straight after graduating. Held various positions since then in production, process optimization, tooling & equipment, and development.

Head of technology since 2010. Pays special attention to the ongoing development of products and sensor innovations for our demanding industrial customers.

But also focuses on keeping sensor production competitive enough for market success. Finds it important here to choose only the most (cost-) effective manufacturing technologies and components – drawing on long-standing experience.

"I like putting our profound knowledge in all aspects of temperature measurement technology to work every day, and expanding it continuously".
