Riedel hires director of manufacturing

Oliver Zimmermann has been appointed to serve as director of manufacturing for Riedel.

Zimmermann earned a doctorate in physics from Ruhr University Bochum and since then has used his knowledge of models and processes to analyze systems, derive meaningful measures, and refine internal structures to help manufacturing organisations become more efficient. A supply chain expert and change management specialist, Zimmermann applies modern management models and optimisation tools, such as digitisation and AI, to drive improvement. 

He most recently served as director of operations for Telegärtner Karl Gärtner, with process responsibility for the supply chain of purchasing, logistics, warehousing, production, work scheduling, and industrial engineering. Zimmermann implemented agile and lean management methods and digitized and optimised the production and supply chain with tools such as SAP S/4HANA. In earlier management roles with Poligrat and Steinert Elektromagnetbau, Zimmermann likewise led digitisation and process optimisation initiatives to transform sales, production, and administration.
