About us

Ralf Seveneick Owner / Senior Consultant

Before becoming a consultant, I worked as a technical manager for coating technology at a Munich-based supplier specializing in the production and application of processes for refining metal surfaces. As a project engineer for manufacturing systems and processes at a well-known automotive supplier in the Lake Constance region, I was responsible for the complete planning, realization and industrialization for large-scale production within surface technology.
