Markus Schlein (*1981) started his career with an apprenticeship as an industrial mechanic at Schuler Pressen GmbH in Göppingen. A lot has happened since he completed the program in 2000. He got his advanced technical certificate, studied mechanical engineering at the Göppingen campus of the Hochschule Esslingen and was rehired by Schuler Pressen GmbH, where he then worked as a constructer in high speed technology. His specific task was the mechanical construction of high-speed presses. Thus he was jointly responsible for the series expansion of the high performance blanking line SAK Mark II.
Working as trainer and seminar adviser at Schuler Akademie, Markus Schlein showed his talent in social interaction and was thus relocated to international sales and distribution. Until the end of his occupation at Schuler, he represented the sales department of minting technology being in charge of the complete Asian market.
In 2013, Markus Schlein changed to Sack & Kiesselbach, one of the most important manufacturers of oil-hydraulic presses. These presses are – mostly, but not exclusively – used in the minting process. To the enthusiastic and dedicated seller and technician, the small and mobile enterprise offered the opportunity to implement his ideas in cooperation with a motivated team. Schlein’s latest project is building a prototype for an entirely new generation of oil-hydraulic medal presses.
Claus-Günther Knorr has now rewarded his young employer’s commitment with the responsible function as authorized manager. While Michael Baum will still be in charge of purchase and service, Markus Schlein will take over sales, project management and design.
