Our Employees

Karl-Heinz G., project manager:

“I run complex projects at Manz, so my job involves a lot of different responsibilities. In the course of a project, I work on bringing a machine or complete production system to life and then handing it over to the customer as a fully functional high-tech production solution.

Christoph H., Area Sales Manager:

"Before joining Manz I spent several years in China with my family on an international assignment program. While I was there I learned about a culture that was totally foreign to me up to that point. I also got to experience a wide variety of jobs in the fields of technology transfer, business development and sales. After returning to Germany in 2017 I was looking for a new challenge where I could best use and contribute the gained knowledge, cultural expertise and language skills. It was very important to me to find a family-friendly, modern employer with a sophisticated product portfolio. As the Area Sales Manager for Asia & Automotive I get the chance to prove myself in a really interesting and challenging business segment, take on responsibility and develop myself personally. Despite frequent business trips, the flexible working arrangements allow me to maintain a good work-life balance so I can continue to work with good focus and motivation."
