Technical expertise and commercial understanding
As a technical buyer for the DECKEL MAHO Pfronten GmbH, Rainer Niederer is responsible for an important and broadly diversified range of tasks at both the technical and commercial level: “Together with colleagues from design, application technology and quality assurance, I define quality standards for the components required,” says the 46-year-old, who studied mechanical and industrial engineering.
His extensive training and knowledge of technology helps him to be able to speak about all issues on an equal footing. Commercial know-how is just as important. “We need commercial awareness to enable us to select the right supplier in the most cost-efficient way.”
