The long-time authorised signatory has comprehensive know-how and extensive experience in the areas of product development and project management. After his training as a technical draughtsman and toolmaker, Pittner worked in product development and equipment design. In addition, he completed further training as a mechanical engineer.

Most recently, as director of Automation, Pittner was responsible for the areas of development, project management, construction, documentation, assembly and commissioning. He also has technical responsibility for the largest CLOOS subsidiaries in the USA and China.
"The further development of young people and constantly new challenges in the automation environment spur me on," explains Pittner. "I look forward to pushing new technologies and innovations in welding and robotics together with our employees in Haiger and around the world.”
Managing Director Sieghard Thomas, who has led the traditional company with headquarters in Haiger since 2016, remains responsible for all other areas as CEO. "I am very pleased to have such an experienced and technically skilled colleague in Stephan Pittner who will support me as CEO in my tasks in the future," explains Sieghard Thomas.
