Oliver Funk's knowledge of the industry and products from his former companies Airmat and Sthill Converting Equipments make him the ideal addition to the consulting team of IBD Wickeltechnik. In a short interview with Funk some interesting questions could be discussed:

Why did you decide to change to IBD Wickeltechnik GmbH?

The decision to change to IBD is clearly due to the customer orientation. The motto "The customer is king" has lost weight in the industry over the last years. However, this does not apply to IBD.

I have been looking after customers in the winding technology industry for about 15 years and during this time I have been able to observe that IBD is known as a very customer-oriented company, not only among customers but also among market competitors.

In the past, customer contact always counted for me. The joint development of a project with the customer as a partner. This is only possible if the team and the company act in the interest of the customer. As a technical consultant in winding technology, you can only be as good as the entire team.

Since people in the industry know each other well, I had a lot of contact with IBD Wickeltechnik and was allowed to get to know the team and their commitment to its customers.

What do you want to achieve with your new employer?

My goal is to complete the team and to become a decisive part of it. Since customer satisfaction has always been a benchmark for the quality of my work, it also takes up a lot of space in my goals for the future. With my expertise and experience-based knowledge of the industry, I look forward to working with IBD engineers and customers to develop groundbreaking solutions for more efficient winding.
