Martin Heusser acts as the Board of Management in charge of Product Technology at HAWE Hydraulik SE. From 2002 until the company's conversion into a European Stockholding Company in September 2008 Heusser held the position of General Manager of HAWE Hydraulik GmbH & Co. KG, in which capacity he already was responsible for Construction & Development.
He assumed managing responsibility for construction and development of the hydraulic and electronic components in 1996, making him the third head of construction in the company's history. Martin Heusser started his career at HAWE Hydraulik in 1982 working for the construction department. Initially he worked on the development of proportional pressure and flow valves as well as cooling for submerged oil pumps. Later on he focused on valves for industrial trucks and floor conveyors, proportional seated valves and solenoids.
Every year the team working under his leadership applies for large number of patents covering the various aspects of hydraulics and their applications, and increasingly also such combining electronic controls and hydraulics. HAWE Hydraulik thereby continuously developed from a mere component supplier into a system solution house providing hydraulic modular systems for technical applications. On so doing Heusser puts great emphasis on developing solutions with independent technical features.
Martin Heusser holds a degree as mechanical engineer (Diplom-Ingenieur Maschinenbau) and studied at the ETH Zürich/Switzerland. He is married and has five children.
