About Knut Grabowski
Which project was special?
At a large injection molding production the ÖKOTEC team was able to implement a wide range of projects and increase energy efficiency in cooperation with a very committed Maintenance and Production Manager, who was very open to and appreciative of new ideas.
What client feedback motived you on the most?
The wish for clear, practical and implementable solutions that are as economically viable as possible.
What are the biggest challenges our customers face in meeting their climate protection targets?
The biggest challenge lies in mastering the complexity of maintaining and increasing energy efficiency in industrial processes. This is because it requires the timely convergence of many disciplines, prudent communication, and strong stringency.
