I know my subject, my industry. And my industry knows me.

With an extensive network, I am able to work in a solution-orientated and successful manner, even on large-scale projects. Particularly in the plastics industry, I cooperate with numerous companies along the entire supply chain (machine manufacturers, automation, peripheral equipment manufacturers, cleanroom suppliers, material suppliers etc.) as well as with qualified consultants, institutions and university institutes.

My network includes:

President of the Consulting Network for the Plastics Industry since 2017

Member of the Administrative Board of the South German Plastics Centre, Würzburg

Member of the Board of Trustees of the Institute for Plastics Processing

Member of the Association of German Engineers

Member of the Society of Plastics Engineering

German-Indian Chamber of Commerce

In our Asian Consulting business unit we have been working for many years with Dr.-Ing. Hans Wobbe of Wobbe & Partner

Dr. Ing. Hans Wobbe was born in Hamburg in 1951 and studied Mechanical Engineering at the Technical University of Braunschweig. He was awarded a doctorate on “Expansion flows of polymer fluids” in 1984.

After holding several management positions in plastics processing, including Head of Development at Werner & Pfleiderer GmbH in Stuttgart, he switched from compounding to injection moulding. With responsibility as Engineering Director of Munich-based Krauss-Maffei Kunststofftechnik GmbH, for the first time the combination of both technologies became production-reliable and ready for market. During his work as Engineering Director / Production Directer for the Austrian company Engel Holding GmbH, he had a special focus on the development of a complete product range of fully-electric injection moulding machines. Furthermore, production accelerated the extension and construction of new plants, especially in Asia.

In 2010 along with Dr.-Ing. Erwin Bürkle, he established the Wobbe Bürkle Partner partnership and has since then worked as an independent management consultant. He is also an adviser to Voss Holding GmbH & Co. KG, in Wipperfürth, as well as the Start-up Adviser for the Institute for Lightweight Construction and Hybrid Systems (ILH) at the University of Paderborn. He also is also a scientific adviser to the Institute of Plastics Technology (KTP) at the University of Paderborn and is a member of the VDI Plastics Technology Strategy Group of the VDI Society for Materials Engineering.

Since 2014, he has been recognised as a Foreign Expert in China by the “State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs” (SAFEA) and is also a “Member of 1000 Talent Plan”. Since the summer semester of 2013, he has lectured on “Combination technologies based on injection moulding” at the Institute for Plastics Processing at RWTH Aachen University.

Our cooperative partner for purchasing:
KORANIS Purchasing Solutions

The owner and Managing Director is Dipl. Ing. and Dipl.Wirtsch.Ing. Dimitrios Koranis. After working with Roland Berger, Webasto and Oechsler, he founded KORANIS Purchasing Solutions in 2005, a consulting company specialising in integrated purchasing, also with proven expertise in the plastics sector.

He also set up agoras e.K., a purchasing community for SMEs. He has also been a Board Adviser to Florus Franchise-System-Development AG since 2013.

I am a columnist for the trade magazine“K-PROFI – Impulse für Kunststoffverarbeiter“ In addition, I regularly give talks at specialist events (e.g. organised by the VDI) and was a guest lecturer for several years at RWTH Aachen University on “Production processes for micro-systems”.
