Michael Grän, Master of Science

Company Founder, Partner & Managing Director

Michael Grän is a customer-oriented engineer with a hands-on approach who learned the business from the ground up. For over 20 years now, he has successfully occupied specialist and leadership positions, all the way up to managing director. He knows that medium-sized companies, with their streamlined structures, require another type of manager than do larger concerns with matrix organizational structures.

He is equally at home in development, distribution, production, and materials management, including purchasing and logistics. His industrial focuses are drive systems (electrical, hydraulic, mechanical, and pneumatic), automotive (passenger cars and commercial vehicles - trucks and trailers), materials handling and hoisting equipment, metal production and processing, materials handling and storage systems, and environmental and materials engineering.
