5 Questions to Klaus Häfele, Mechanical & Plastics Engineering Director

What makes working at Hirschmann Automotive special?
The opportunity to participate in sustainable mobility, but also what the company is implementing at the site on these topics: heat recovery from production, photovoltaics to generate electricity for our production as well as for charging company cars, the canteen where regional products are processed, and and and - the list could go on and on. Additionally, I´d say the many employee benefits such as massages, sports and leisure offers, employee discounts, home office arrangements, and of course our Hirschmann Automotive Academy which is available to every employee.

How did you end up in the automotive industry?
As a person with an affinity for technology, I have always been fascinated by mobility in all its form. So it was only a matter of time before Hirschmann Automotive and I crossed paths.

When you could be a car, which one would it be?
A sports car with all-wheel drive, because only horsepower brings nothing, the HP must also arrive on the road!

What was your dream job when you were a little kid?
I wanted to be a pilot, like most “little” boys!

What, if I want to be part of your team?
