Hi Tobias, what have you previously worked with?
I have been working in the fastener industry since 2008. I first worked with mechanical tensioners and have worked for a fastener company since 2012 where I was responsible for sales in northern Germany, and supporting colleagues with mechanical and hydraulic tensioners all over Germany and Austria.
What do you do in your current role?
For BUMAX, I am responsible for northern Germany, from Flensburg by the Danish border down to around Hannover. I am also responsible for the wind industry and the ship building and offshore sectors throughout Germany.
What do you like about your job?
I enjoy engaging with customers in various branches and learning about their specific challenges and how we can help overcome them. At BUMAX, we have the products and expertise to find solutions to the most demanding fastener applications.
What is the best thing about working at BUMAX?
I would say having unique fastener products that we can bring to the market. There is also a lot of expertise within the company we can draw on.
How would you like to develop at BUMAX?
I want to become an expert in stainless high strength fasteners. I am well on the way, learning on customer projects and from my colleagues, but there is a lot to learn.
What would you like to achieve at BUMAX?
I would like to make the BUMAX brand more well known in the German market. When it comes to demanding stainless steel fastener applications, BUMAX should be at the top of people’s mind. But we still have a lot of work to do to raise awareness of the benefits BUMAX fasteners offer among potential customers.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I enjoy cooking for my family and friends, epee sport fencing, hiking and traveling with my wife in our camper van around Europe.
