The graduated industrial engineer Rainer Weingraber can look back on many years of management experience in internationally renowned companies of international renown, such as DaimlerChrysler, Siemens, Magna and, most recently, the Haas Group, where he worked as a Managing Director for several years in Austria as well as in other countries. Rainer Weingraber sees himself primarily as an all-rounder with a high affinity for technology and mechanical engineering in particular.
Dr. Werner Wittmann, Managing Partner of the Wittmann Group, is pleased to have enlisted the services of Rainer Weingraber as Managing Director and CEO of Wittmann Battenfeld: “With Rainer Weingraber, the Wittmann Group will have a top executive who will give the company new impulses from his knowledge and management experience.”
Werner Wittmann takes this opportunity to thank Georg Tinschert, who will terminate his active career as Managing Director of Wittmann Battenfeld and go into retirement, for his more than 10 years of successful service at the head of the company. Under Georg Tinschert, who was appointed CEO of the company at the end of 2007, Wittmann Battenfeld has experienced an impressive development both technologically and economically and is one of the internationally renowned players in the plastics industry today. Werner Wittmann is confident that Rainer Weingraber will continue and further strengthen the company’s positive development.
