The following day, Pollmann CZ invited to an Open House and celebrated the 25 years with employees and their families and people from the region. More than 2,000 visitors were extremely impressed with the company’s machines, production equipment and broad capabilities.

'Teamcenter' and 'NX' at Pollmann

As part of the Pollmann digital strategy, we decided in 2014 to introduce a PLM system (Product Lifecycle Management). What convinced us was the opportunity to standardize the CAD/CAM environment at all our locations.

Following a thorough screening process, we chose the SIEMENS programs NX for CAD/CAM and Teamcenter as a PLM system. By now, we have reached a top level in terms of converting and implementing the new IT architecture at our headquarters in Karlstein, and we have already started the rollout to our locations in North American and China. .


Matthias Kitzler - new Purchasing Manager at Pollmann International

Pollmann International – a career at Pollmann

In early April, Mr. Matthias Kitzler became Head of the Strategic Purchasing and Materials Management Department  at Pollmann International (PINT). With this appointment, Mr. Kitzler is switching sides so-to-speak, because for the past 11 years he had a successful career in Sales at Pollmann after completing his training in Microelectronics and Toolmaking.

 “As an account executive, I always had a lot of contacts with the Purchasing Departments of our customers, and I can apply a lot of what I learned in my new position. Good negotiation skills are simply a must if you want to succeed in business. But you always have to be fair”, says Matthias Kitzler pointing out an important value in the Pollmann corporate culture. “It is not about pushing down prices, it is about developing intelligent solutions with our supplier partners which bring long-term benefits for both parties.”
