We are personalities with huge professional and life experience. Technology runs like a thread through our lives. That is the reason why our profession as consulting engineers in the field of technology is our vocation. The combination of scientific and immense practical expertise and BEST PRACTICE solutions is unique.


We draw our huge expertise from numerous successful projects with well-known TOP companies from key industries, in different cultural areas, on four continents with different languages and customs.


Board of Directors/ TOP Management


We advise in the run-up to new investments in new production sites and the latest plant and machine technology as well as in retrofits in existing production sites and in complex infrastructure projects. We prepare studies & analyses as well as due diligence reports for investors in company investments and are significantly involved in the restructuring and realignment of individual organizational units and entire companies.


Often our consulting assignments are important strategic projects directly sponsored by the board of directors. Accordingly, the reporting line is directly with the board of directors, the management or the management of the division.

Through our studies, in which we have fully analyzed our projects, we have been able to prove the enormous impact of the 15 biggest issues, among others, on poor performance, quality and excessive costs in the stamping plant. These core issues occur in every press shop worldwide, with all their negative effects. We know the causes very well and have the solutions to fix these issues.

We sustainably improve the performance and the press part quality and thus reduce the costs of the press shop including die shop and die maintenance areas considerably.- Axel Fuchs
