Martin Baumann: plastics expert with profound experience

Martin Baumann is the ideal choice as Managing Director of the Arburg subsidiary in the USA for two reasons: he possesses in-depth knowledge of the plastics sector, as well as several years of management, sales and project experience for various companies in the United States.

Baumann completed his academic qualifications at the Aalen University of Applied Sciences – Engineering and Economics – in 1991, achieving a Bachelor’s degree in Plastics Technology, followed by an MBA in International Marketing at the Export Academy in Reutlingen in 1993.

Most recently, Martin Baumann was engaged for almost four years as Vice President and General Manager at MAAG Group Americas in Eagle Rock, Virginia, a manufacturer of gear pumps, granulation and filtration systems, and powder mills.

He describes himself as a "business and general manager with a focus on developing and implementing growth strategies for complex industrial products in the B2B environment." Starting in June this year, Baumann will undergo an intensive familiarization program in the U.S. in close cooperation with the headquarters in Lossburg to prepare him for his new challenges. “I feel greatly honoured to be part of the Arburg family and I look forward to making my contribution towards ensuring that our customers can produce their plastic parts efficiently, the key to commercial success, with our high-end technology”, states Martin Baumann.
