Georg Haas is responsible for the complete range – including after-sales – of Amba’s All-in-One cold-forming machines designed for the production of special screws, tubes and spokes. After graduating in mechanical engineering from the Aachen University of Applied Sciences with a major in structural design technology, Georg Haas worked for several years with a manufacturer of industrial cleaning systems. His responsibilities were initially in the design and project planning departments. Later, as a key account manager in the same company, he was responsible for one of the biggest international car producers.

Manfred Houben is going to retire in the next few months after 17 years as one of the Managing Directors of Amba. “In Georg Haas, we have found a sales expert who understands both our machines and the international sales business. With his profound technological know-how and many years of international expertise, he is the perfect fit for this position. He knows the ins and outs of the sales business in the investment goods sector and has a deep understanding of the added value that our machines provide to our customers.“
