Bad Reichenhall, January 2024

Into the new year with increased expertise and strength!

Team Zippermast is delighted to welcome its new Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Volker Raupenstrauch! Volker has already supported us for several months as an external consultant and we have come to appreciate his experience and hands-on approach and would no longer want to be without him.

As an engineer in applied physics with many years of experience in various management positions in small and medium-sized companies, he brings valuable knowledge in all business areas: in product, process, quality and project management, in research and development, in logistics and supply chain management, as well as in sales and service.

At Zippermast GmbH, Volker is now heading the technology department and is responsible for the further development of Zippermast technology and the supporting systems, as well as their transfer to series production. As a member of the management board, he is helping to shape the company’s path from start-up to established manufacturer.

As part of this new appointment, Zippermast GmbH has a new structure: Frank Woodcock (CEO) will be supported in the management by Volker Raupenstrauch (CTO) and @Jutta Klima (CBDO). The subordinate units are divided into the technology team (headed by Volker Raupenstrauch) and the administration team (headed by Jutta Klima).

We wish Volker a good start and look forward to mastering the tasks ahead together.
