Dipl.-Ing. Achim Merzbach

Achim Merzbach can look back on an excit­ing pro­fes­sion­al career to date. In 1990, he start­ed as a PLC engi­neer in mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing at Philips in Aachen. In 1993 he changed to the halo­gen lamp pro­duc­tion at Philips Licht as project man­ag­er in the field of indus­tri­al automa­tion tech­nol­o­gy. In this posi­tion he worked for sev­er­al years. From 1995 he took over the com­plete Factory Engineering and from 1997 also the pro­duc­tion man­age­ment of the halo­gen lamp man­u­fac­tur­ing and packaging.

From 2000 he was respon­si­ble for the devel­op­ment, indus­tri­al­iza­tion and automa­tion of the coat­ing depart­ment as main project man­ag­er and lat­er addi­tion­al­ly as depart­ment manager.

In 2010 he again took over the man­age­ment of Factory Engineering to sup­port the imple­men­ta­tion of LEAN man­age­ment. Here the focus was on TPM (opti­miza­tion of plants, process­es and main­te­nance). Another focus was the devel­op­ment of the ener­gy man­age­ment system.

In 2018, Achim Merzbach took over site man­age­ment at a soft­ware and IT ser­vice provider with a focus on mar­ket­ing, cus­tomer sup­port and acqui­si­tion and pro­fes­sion­al net­work­ing. The pre­vi­ous knowl­edge of his pre­vi­ous man­age­r­i­al posi­tions and his tech­ni­cal knowl­edge are a great advan­tage when inter­act­ing with customers.

The way to QA

As ear­ly as 1990, our man­ag­ing direc­tor Michael Fritz, then also work­ing for Philips, and Achim Merzbach got to know each oth­er. Since the foun­da­tion of QA, there have always been long-stand­ing busi­ness con­nec­tions and a great mutu­al trust.

With all his many years of expe­ri­ence, Achim Merzbach will now sup­port Quality Automation GmbH as a Senior-Consultant with a main focus on sales. His respon­si­bil­i­ties will include sup­port­ing and advis­ing the exec­u­tive board, the man­age­ment and the project man­agers in both exter­nal and inter­nal projects. Furthermore, he will be increas­ing­ly involved in the acqui­si­tion of new cus­tomers and the sup­port of exist­ing cus­tomers. In oth­er words, he will be your direct con­tact for all ques­tions regard­ing our ser­vices, prod­ucts or ongo­ing projects.

The added value for the customer

Through this per­son­nel expan­sion, it is now pos­si­ble for us as Quality Automation GmbH to main­tain an even clos­er busi­ness rela­tion­ship with our cus­tomers and to sup­port you with advice at any time.
