Rainer Wittich, started his career in 1992, when he was employed as a production equipment designer by the world’s leading independent engineering partner, EDAG.
Within the EDAG Group, which develops complete vehicles and production facilities mainly for the automotive industry, he was made Head of the Production Equipment Design Department in 1998, and later Head of the Design Profit Centre in the Production Development Division.
In 2006, he took over the task of bundling and managing the integrated production development competencies in a newly founded profit centre, “Production Solutions”. This business runs to this time only in Germany and was founded with 270 employs.
In 2012, the profit centre became a separate company, and has since continued operations under the name of EDAG Production Solutions GmbH & Co. KG, a wholly owned subsidiary of what is today EDAG Engineering GmbH. Since then, Rainer Wittich has held the position as Chairman of the Board of Management of the subsidiary, which currently employs a workforce of more than 1,400 at 28 locations in Germany and abroad.
