Reading time ( words)

optical control GmbH & Co. KG has hired Björn Kronshage to build and manage its team and continued growth in Germany and Europe.

“With our rapid global growth, we have continued to expand our production and have continued to build our team by enhancing the activities in Germany and Europe,” commented Wolfgang Peter, managing director of optical control. “Kronshage has a 15-year background managing distribution of special machinery equipment in the electronic industry. He is a mechanical engineer with a Master’s of Business Administration. He will fit our team perfectly during our growth and development of future products.”

“Inventory management by storage and X-ray component counting is a hot market now. It is a critical part of production as the industry moves toward Industry 4.0, and “line down” simply is not an option”, stated Kronshage. “Companies want as much automation as possible. Data safety also is one of the major key points, especially now when protecting sensitive data against hacker attacks is more important than ever.”

The products from optical control are top of-the-line, and do not require any cloud connection for any component or customers database.“ This is a key factor for data security,” added Kronshage. “I am extremely happy about this new opportunity to join the team at optical control. Now I look forward to presenting our products to our customers.”
