ENGEL’s New Head of Global Processing Engineering

Dr. Johannes Kilian, Vice President of Process Technologies and inject 4.0 at ENGEL, is the new Vice President of Global Processing Engineering in the ENGEL Group. He is taking over this position from Prof. Dr Norbert Müller, who has accepted an appointment as a Professor for Plastics Processing at the Rosenheim Technical University of Applied Sciences in Germany.

A solutions provider headquartered in Austria combines two central divisions under joint management: developing process technologies and digital products and global processing engineering. “We are delighted to have won over Johannes Kilian for this strategic reorientation“, as Dr Gerhard Dimmler, CTO of the ENGEL Group, emphasises. “This will ensure that we orient our research and development even more closely on customer needs and empower us to expand our technology leadership further.

Johannes Kilian studied mechatronics, robotics and automation technology, and economics and has already been with ENGEL for ten years. After holding positions of responsibility, he took over as head of the Process Technologies and inject 4.0 division in 2021.

Thanks to the strongly application-oriented development approach and the involvement of customers in development projects, Johannes Kilian has already worked closely with the global processing engineering division in recent years. He will now also bring the two divisions closer together regarding operations. “This gives us the best possible position for process technology challenges and future digital opportunities,” says Dimmler.

As Professor of Plastics Processing at the Rosenheim Technical University of Applied Sciences, Norbert Müller is dedicated to developing new fibre composite technologies, among other things, and can build on a wealth of experience from his time at ENGEL. “We sincerely thank Mr. Müller for the great commitment he showed during his total of eight years at ENGEL,” says Dr Gerhard Dimmler.
