Back to the roots

26.08.2016 - Egbert Wenninger, newly appointed CSO at Grenzebach Maschinenbau GmbH.

Egbert Wenninger first started his career with Grenzebach in 1995 as Project Engineer for the glass technology sector and in 2005 he became a Member of the Executive Board and Vice President Sales Glass Technology. He stayed with Grenzebach in his position until 2012 before he left the company for a little while. Now, the graduate engineer for Electrical Engineering and Information Technology has returned to Grenzebach Maschinenbau GmbH as Chief Sales Officer (CSO) and he is also taking over the responsibility for Head of Marketing and Service group-wide.

"I look forward to tackle the new challenges a broadened area of responsibility brings. Grenzebach has grown since 2012 and added new, interesting market segments to the technology portfolio. Just think of the innovative Automated Guided Vehicle systems for intralogistics applications, the production technology for storage batteries or the energy-efficient friction stir welding technology for joining different materials with high weld and surface quality", says Egbert Wenninger.

It goes without saying that he maintains close ties with the “Glass World“. Egbert Wenninger's past year’s activities in the batch plant segment and melting technology allow him to share comprehensive glass production know-how with all Grenzebach customers. He also remains a member of the Forum Glass Technology in the German Engineering Federation VDMA.
