Straight after graduating in mechanical engineering, he learnt all about temperature measurement in various sawi departments: prototype development and small series production, quality control, and servicing.

Transferred to the office floor in June 2004 as sales assistant. Meanwhile continued with on-the-job studies and graduated as Swiss-certified technical businessperson.

In 2009 he was appointed head of Marketing and Sales and elected to the management board. As Head of Production and Purchasing he is now responsible for punctual product completion (own and outsourced), manufacturing policy and controlling, commodities specification and procurement, and product warehousing management.

"I love dealing with our high-tech sensor products, and shall carry on updating my theoretical knowledge with on-the-job studies".
