granIT employee Lipi Kothadiya has been demonstrating for more than six months that diversity in the team definitely means more creativity and cultural enrichment.

Trendsetting

The machine manufacturer WEINMANN has been setting trends in timber construction production since 1985. To date, the Swabian company located in St. Johann, Germany, has become the world market leader for timber construction systems – both for carpentry plants, module manufacturers and the prefabricated house industry. The connecting element has always been software from granIT.

An interview with WEINMANN Sales and Marketing Manager Michael Marschall and Project Engineer Ingo Krieg about the importance of Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) in the automated production of prefabricated timber houses.

Vocational training that highlights personal strengths

The (former) trainee Steffen Plievier was taken on as a permanent employee in the granIT team.

To be quite honest: The fact that we train at granIT also has to do with a certain self-interest.

Just to name the key areas of the granIT clientele.

Accordingly, we are doubly pleased about the passed examination of our apprentice Steffen Plievier and his subsequent acceptance into the granIT ranks as a permanent employee.
