Mosbach, 2020.08.10 – "Sales is my passion," says Jürgen Petzel, CSO at MPDV, "but nobody could foresee that I would make it to Managing Director when I joined the company." Petzel has been regarded as a bridge builder for the Smart Factory right from the foundation of the subsidiary in Hamm at the turn of the millennium, but certainly since his rise to Vice President Sales. Always keeping an eye on current market developments, Petzel knows very well that manufacturing companies must start implementing an all-embracing Smart Factory strategy at an early stage if they want to remain market-leaders.
Always serving the market
Thanks to a comprehensive understanding of the market, Jürgen Petzel excels in meeting the needs of manufacturing companies of all sizes and industries with the solutions developed by MPDV. "With our products and solutions, we support our prospects and customers on their way to a future-oriented production according to Industry 4.0," points out Petzel. "Open IIoT platforms are the future of manufacturing IT. Already today, they are a fundamental element when implementing a functionally networked factory. And this is where our Manufacturing Integration Platform (MIP) comes into play."
Petzel is one of three new managing directors of MPDV who have taken charge since October 1, 2020. The other members of the new circle of managing directors are Thorsten Strebel, CTO, and Nathalie Kletti, CEO. All three experts had already been in the top management as authorized signatories and representatives of the key business areas of the successful medium-sized company since the beginning of 2018.
