Wenninger, who has been a Member of the Board of the industry association since 2011, will be focusing on the acquisition of new members and strengthening the role of the Glass Technology Forum as a platform for all German mechanical and plant engineers in this field.

It is important to him to “introduce further important players into the Glass Technology Forum and to strengthen the position of German glass machine manufacturers on the global market.”

He succeeds Dr. Bernd Holger Zippe, Executive Director of Zippe Industrieanlagen GmbH, who advocated a change after serving as Chairman of the Board for 8 years and did not stand for reelection. His long-serving Deputy, Dr. Harald Jodeit, Managing Director of JSJ Jodeit GmbH, also stepped down.

As their term had ended, the entire board of the VDMA Glass Technology Forum was newly elected at the meeting in Düsseldorf.

As well as Wenninger and Glaser, Bernhard Hötger, Managing Director of HEGLA GmbH & Co. KG in Beverungen, Christoph Hermanns, Managing Director of MDI Advanced Processing GmbH in Mainz and Günther Mlynar, Managing Director of Zippe Industrieanlagen GmbH in Wertheim, are members of the Board of Directors.

Wenninger represents 60 mostly small and medium-sized companies in the glass specialism of the German mechanical and plant engineering sector. These internationally active companies generate turnover totaling approximately EUR 1 billion.
