In 2018 we celebrate 40 years of KRONEN and on occasion of the anniversary we have decided to focus on the people behind KRONEN. After all they are the actual makers of our company‘s success story!


We introduce: Stephan Münch, Glass Bead Blaster

Since about ten years the machines are treated at KRONEN in-house, in the own glass bead blaster plant after pre-fabrication. Why is this important? Because the machines get the requested look. And the material becomes more resistant and guaranteed rustproof by this treatment.

Who is Stephan Münch?

Stephan Münch is responsible for glass bead blasting at KRONEN. He is a real professional working in this field since 25 years already. In between times he was as a team leader in the PET recycling industry, but this he finished after five years. It was his conscious decision: he wanted to have a more family-friendly job again, which he still likes doing until today.
In former times, Stephan Münch had already treated KRONEN Machines, back then at the production site of a KRONEN supplier, as KRONEN had not had an own glass bead blaster plant back then. In 2016 he started at KRONEN and he is one of two glass bead blasters since. The KRONEN machines cannot be imagined without them, because they would look quite differently…

What is Stephan Münch's job?

Every machine goes through the glass bead blaster plant after welding. The plant is located separately at the KRONEN areal, the entire room is covered with white glass bead dust. The fine, globular glass particles are blasted on the machine by compressed air. The surface is polished and any welding marks and discolorations are removed by this. Only after this process the machines look like as they have to: absolutely perfect, without any disturbing stripes or other marks.

This perfection is no small matter, it requests years-long experience. You stand in the plant with a helmet, protective clothes and with the compressed air hose on the shoulder – and this is on each outdoor temperature. The entire room is full of dust, you work completely blind. Stephan Münch has to know exactly at which part of the machine he stands and with which distance, speed, position and direction he has to lead the blaster. Several machines he can finish at one day for final assembly. No doubt, it is not an easy job requiring sure instinct and even more experience.

This is what Stephan Münch says about his work with KRONEN:

“I think it‘s great working together on machines that are used all over the world, and that I can give my best in this regard. And so is the interaction with my colleagues, many of whom have now become friends.

Glass bead blasting is demanding, but I still like doing it. I enjoy going to work. KRONEN does a lot for its employees, such as the new build of the cafeteria recently. But what I like best: supervisors and colleagues are real great!”

In 2018 we celebrate 40 years of KRONEN and on occasion of the anniversary we have decided to focus on the people behind KRONEN. After all they are the actual makers of our company‘s success story!


We introduce: Kai Rohrer, Electrical Engineer

The machines and processing linese constructed and produced by KRONEN are equipped with electrics. In this context networking and IT becomes more and more important, too. These topics – electrics and IT at machines – Kai Rohrer takes care of at KRONEN since 2015:

Who is Kai Rohrer?

Electricity has fascinated him since ever, so it was obvious very quickly that Kai Rohrer wanted to do a professional education to become an Electrician for mechanical and drive technology in the industrial sector.
However, with his postgraduate training for Electronics, focus on data technology, which he did afterwards, he wanted to go beyond: deepen his knowledge in electrics, automatization and data technology, and thus qualifying for working as an IT relevant Electrical Engineer, instead of continuing the repair and assembling job. And this was just the right time for KRONEN:

What is Kai Rohrer's job?

Because just at that time KRONEN had a vacant position with the responsibility for developing electrical circuits and programming machines software. Kai Rohrer startet at KRONEN shortly before his last examination and was sent to Berlin more or less immediately: to commission a Vortex line for germ reduction – for which he had also created the software – at the customer’s production site.

Since then he has been on board and in duty for all those things involving electrics and IT. He works closely together with his colleagues, because he comes in when molding, mechanics and engines are defined. Switches, wires, sensors and software – all this needs to be integrated and fine-tuned with the rest of the machine. During developing phase he creates the electrical circuit layout, during building phase he writes the machine’s program, and finally the prototype needs to be tested.

This is what Kai Rohrer says about his work with KRONEN:

“I am proud of the K650 centrifuge system: One of the more complex systems; I was privileged to contribute a lot to its development. It has a number of features, which on first glance our customers may not notice, but yet they contribute to the success of the system.
The first processing line for salads and vegetables it was integrated in is fully networked and automatized and one of my latest projects.

I like the variety, every KRONEN machine is individual. It is fun to do new things, being creative and working on a solution and concept – especially in such a super team!”

In 2018 we celebrate 40 years of KRONEN and on occasion of the anniversary we have decided to focus on the people behind KRONEN. After all they are the actual makers of our company‘s success story!


We introduce: Sennur Hepting, Technical Drawer

At KRONEN machines and lines for processing fruit, vegetable and salad are not just produced, but also designed and constructed. Since 18 years, would you believe it, Sennur Septing is working with the construction team at KRONEN:

Who is Sennur Hepting?

Sennur Hepting is a Technical Drawer at KRONEN. When she started her professional education back in 1993 at a company for industry furnaces, she was still drawing with pencil and ink on parchment paper. Perspectives, scales, corrections, all this needed to be realized by hand.
She also still knows the former KRONEN grounds in Eckartsweier and moved with the company to the present grounds in Kehl at the Rhine in 2004. Meanwhile she has raised a family, has become mother of two children and returned to the construction team after a break in 2013.

What is Sennur Hepting’s job?

Sennur Hepting draws layouts, in order that customers can picture what the machines will look like exactly and how they will be set-up later.

Through the years Sennur Heptings’s job has changed at lot: from handcraft to 2D at the computer, and today layouts are created in 3D. You build a model and pull it on the drawing, then a software calculates perspectives and side views. The engineer constructs and shapes the lines and machines and Sennur Hepting details the drawings and creates stock lists.

On the one hand she is glad that she has gotten to know the paper and pencil times. On the other hand implementing at the computer requires much less efforts. Mistakes had to be erased with razor blades in former times – this is done much easier today, it is just at the click of a mouse.

This is what Sennur Hepting says about her work with KRONEN:

„Over the 18 years of my work at KRONEN many things have been changing. I am proud contributing to such a future-oriented, employee-friendly company.

When I started at KRONEN we were four people in the construction team. Today, we are more than twice as many! I still like working here and I appreciate that KRONEN facilitates me in reconciling my family and job."



PS: Why finding another employee at the May calendar sheet of your printed KRONEN calendar? Quite simply because this employee does not want to be in online media, of course we respect this wish and are happy to introduce Sennur Hepting.


APRIL PORTRAIT - We introduce: Manuel Walter

01.04.2018

In 2018 we celebrate 40 years of KRONEN and on occasion of the anniversary we have decided to focus on the people behind KRONEN. After all they are the actual makers of our company‘s success story!


We introduce: Manuel Walter, Head of Pre-Fabrication

When KRONEN was founded 40 years ago, the company focused on merchandising equipment, mainly for commercial kitchens. Since the industrial part of KRONEN was taken over by Rudolf Hans Zillgith in 1998, KRONEN has been focusing on machinery for processing large amounts of fruit, vegetable and salad - and has expanded its own production site further and further. This expansion Manuel Walter experienced in his career, too:

Who is Manuel Walter?

Manuel Walter has been head of KRONEN's pre-fabrication division since 2016. In the same year a new bending press was acquired. And this was not a coincidence. Manual Walter passed his business education as a construction mechanics, worked as a welder afterwards and started with KRONEN in 2012.
However, in 2014 he decided to do further education and completed his master in metal works. As soon as he finished, KRONEN asked him to come back – and made him responsible for the pre-fabrication division of the company. Thus, he was also in charge for the newly acquired bending press. And so he is till today:

What is Manuel Walter’s job?

Manuel Walter programs the bending press: He transfers 3D models of the metal sheets into the software, chooses all necessary tools, calculates the laser cutting by using the software and defines bending sequences. By this means, the metal sheet is bended in the correct angle in pre-fabrication, in order that they can be processed further. And it is same for the saw, with which pipes and solid metal can be cut.
Manuel Walter is head of a team of construction mechanics, it is his job to put the team on work detail. The team members implement the shaping of sheet according to his inputs and programming.

This is what Manuel Walter says about his work with KRONEN:

"Programming the bending press is an activity that offers a lot of variety - I enjoy it. I also appreciate the interaction with nice colleagues. The work environment is just right.

We create many complicated sheets every day, since in the end every machine is individual and tailor-made. I like my job - that is the most important thing! Fair conditions and the good atmosphere at KRONEN, this is completing the picture."


MARCH PORTRAIT - We introduce: Mandy Knobel

In 2018 we celebrate 40 years of KRONEN and on occasion of the anniversary we have decided to focus on the people behind KRONEN. After all they are the actual makers of our company‘s success story!


We introduce: Mandy Knobel, Export Sales Assistant South America and Baltic States

KRONEN increased the export of its machinery and solutions in the last copule of years. In 2017 about 80 percent of the revenues came from the export business.
Thus, Germany remains the biggest market, but important are all other future markets around the world, too. Since 25 years KRONEN is doing business in South America for example, and since 20 years in Russia and the Baltic area, too. And since 2011 Mandy Knobel is the responsible Export Sales Assistant at KRONEN for these regions:

Who is Mandy Knobel?

Just as KRONEN Mandy Knobel has been active internationally for a long time. Actuallly, the job at KRONEN is her first employment in Germany at all. Before, she worked in France, Tunesia and Luxembourg, among others in the sales back office. Mandy Knobel studied "Transnational communication and cooperation", namely tri-national: in Saarbrucken, Metz and Luxembourg. Her focus: languages. Thus, Mandy Knobel can communicate in English, French, Spanish and Russian with customers and partners. It is obvious: intercultural exchange is a central theme in her career. And with her job as Export Sales Assistant at KRONEN she remains true to herself at this point.

What is Mandy Knobel's job?

Mandy Knobel is in continuous exchange with the customers, in their national language of course. She creates offers, takes care of shipping and customs clearance for the machines as well as of the billing. She works closely together with the Export Area Sales Managers and holds position in the office when they are travelling in their respective sales area. For this kind of work you require versatility: being cosmopolitan, persistent and customer-oriented, all this at the same time, is important. Mandy Knobel completes the order confirmation, coordiates the forwarding company and clears customs, so it is thanks to her that customers receive their shipment - after the machines are finalized in the production - as soon as possible.

This is what Mandy Knobel says about her work with KRONEN:

"I particularly appreciate the contact with people all over the world and the languages in which I cultivate these contacts. The family-friendly work climate is very pleasant and I think the company‘s health management is exemplary.

My work with KRONEN is very communicative and the point is to coordinate all steps in a way that things go smoothly. A special project for me was to re-create our system, therewith our offers can also be released in Russian, not just English - a real win-win for our customers and us.

Custom issues are daily business, though. Together with our representatives in the respective country or the import company it is my task to solve them as quickly as possible, in order that the customer receives its shipment in due time and in order to avoid warehousing costs.“


FEBRUARY PORTRAIT - We introduce: Philipp Wollenbaer

In 2018 we celebrate 40 years of KRONEN and on occasion of the anniversary we have decided to focus on the people behind KRONEN. After all they are the actual makers of our company‘s success story!


We introduce: Philipp Wollenbaer, Industrial Mechanic in Special Construction

KRONEN produces the larger part of the machinery and plants for the catering, specialty, freshcut and food industry at its own production site at the 5000 sqm sized area in Kehl-Goldscheuer.

Hence, the production is a central part within the company and this is also the reason why KRONEN offers professional education. Currently five apprentices are working with the company. And not long ago Philipp Wollenbaer was one of them:

Who is Philipp Wollenbaer?

Pretty much one year ago Philipp Wollenbaer finished his education. Technolohy has always been of interest to him. Thus, becoming an Industrial Mechanic was quite obvious to him. He is from the region and already knew KRONEN. In 2014 he applied at KRONEN – and started his education. So, Philipp Wollenbaer has started the profession up from the bottom at KRONEN.

What is Philipp Wollenbaer's job?

Philipp Wollenbaer installs special machines – entirely, from A to Z. He receives the blasted components form the glass bead plant and assembles them. This includes reparing and processing e.g. threads or shafts as well as gathering and implementing construction drawings and order plans. And this is really important, since Philipp Wollenbaer doesn't build one and the same machine twice. He is responsible for making the tailor-made, individual single or special models at KRONEN.

In the meanwhile it is him, the former apprentice, who has become the contact partner for the junior staff: He is the one asked if the apprentices need advice whether on theory or practice!

This is what Philipp Wollenbaer says about his work with KRONEN:

„What unites me with KRONEN is the fact that I am part of a very professional team. I am proud, because year-by-year we get bigger and better. What I like most is working with heavy machines or assemblie. I learn new things everyday.

I assemble salad washing machines of the GEWA type and the pineapple and melon peeling machine AMS 220 for example – in many different variations. It is a diverse job and I can work on my own responsibility.

For building one GEWA machine I need about two days in average – but sometimes things need to be quicker. Last year there was a series of orders and I have built at least 15 GEWA machines in a couple of months. It was a good feeling having accomplished this in the end!"

In 2018 we celebrate 40 years of KRONEN and on occasion of the anniversary we have decided to focus on the people behind KRONEN. After all they are the actual makers of our company‘s success story!


We introduce: Azizah Schmeiser, Export Area Sales Manager for Far East

Who is Azizah Schmeiser?

It is hard to be more international: Azizah Schmeiser is born in Singapore and is able to speak five languages – English, German, Chinese, Malay and Indonesian. She went through some other positions before she approached the field of sales: After her business education she worked in the technical purchasing department of a Canadian company. Then, she moved to Germany and started working in the sales and export area. Heading international is a strong issue to her – this as well as her technical and sales know how she can fully apply at KRONEN, too.

What is Azizah Schmeiser's job?

KRONEN is a globally operating producer and supplier of machines and processing lines for the catering, specialty, fresh cut and food industry and delivers its products to more than 100 countries. Hence, the international sales becomes more and more important. KRONEN has a network of representatives in more than 60 countries by now.

Here, the Asian region is an important growth market – and this region Azizah Schmeiser takes care of at KRONEN since 2013.

Her area of activity is various: She guides and supports the representatives in the Asian region, she is on-site at the most important trade shows, visits and consults customers and continous learning about the requirements and needs of the respective countries. In short: She is the face and ear of KRONEN for the industry in this diverse part of the world!

This is what Azizah Schmeiser says about her work with KRONEN:

„The work in an international enterprise with its own highly-developed production is extremely varied, as individual customer requirements demand totally different solutions. I think it‘s exciting to develop new markets and communicate with other cultures. Moreover, I like working together with qualified, motivated colleagues, and I like the good team spirit.

The industrial processing of agricultural products is not that common in some parts of Asia by now – that is a special challenge, but makes my work especially interesting, too. Real premieres and thus highlights of my working experiences have been: The delivery of a cutting machine to Antesco in Vietnam in 2016 and the setup of an apple and a raisin processing line for our customer Agro Indus in Afghanistan in 2017."
