Putzmeister America, Inc. has named Holger Thiel Director of Operations for the company’s concrete transit mixer division. In the role he will ensure high quality and production standards in all manufacturing facilities and work to continually enhance the mixers in conjunction with the engineering and sales teams.


Thiel most recently held the position of director of lean manufacturing for Putzmeister America. Prior to that, for 15 years he worked for Putzmeister Concrete Pumps in Germany. He held numerous positions at the company, including roles in production control and development, plant management, lean manufacturing and continuous improvement.

Based out of Putzmeister’s headquarters in Sturtevant, Wis., Thiel will travel frequently to the company’s concrete transit mixer facilities in Houston and Mexico. He can be reached at (262) 884-6361 or ThielH@putzam.com.
