It is necessary to adjust accordingly. I am looking forward to facing these challenges within a sustainable and future orientated company like Energiequelle”, says Marc Waltrich when questioned about his motivation for an occupational change.
Innovations in the new business development division

Reasons for restructuring
Bundling of competences, abolishing of division boundaries and a stronger focus on international markets have been the main reasons for the restructuring. “We want to support each other, no matter if a project is developed in Brandenburg or Pakistan.

In this process it has been very important for us to maintain existing and to create even new jobs. A first step has been made with Marc Waltrich.
