Digitization: WEINIG builds strong structures

With the standard W4.0 digital and cloud connectivity, the WEINIG product world already secures you all options for networked production. With the new business unit “Automation & Digital Business” WEINIG is now also driving the digitized future internally.

The new business unit “Automation & Digital Business” creates optimal structures for the efficient handling of future challenges. CEO Wolfgang Pöschl: “With this decision, we are strategically and organizationally aligning our company to the future, which will be characterized by a greater significance of project business and digitization.” Consequently, the new company unit will be positioned in Weinig Concept GmbH & Co KG, which bundles Weinig’s engineering activities. Jochen Ganz, who is currently head of the product unit Service, was appointed managing director of the new business unit. As part of Concept, he will act as the second head alongside Dr. Otto Leible, who will continue to head Engineering, his traditional field of responsibility. Initially, the head of the product unit Service will continue to work until his successor is settled.

The establishment of the new business unit Automation & Digital Business is already the third major WEINIG initiative in the Industry 4.0 area in a short time. Following the introduction of the W4.0 digital standard in Weinig’s own product world, the digital alliance MindSphere World was co-founded in January this year. Under the leadership of Siemens AG, the members of the organization work together on the cloud-based Siemens IoT operating system MindSphere. Access to the uniform platform helps WEINIG to further develop W4.0 digital and optimize it for your benefit. Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Gregor Baumbusch: “The customer benefit will remain an outstanding and unique strength of WEINIG on the market even in the age of digitization.”
