watttron has developed an innovative heating technology with which, among other things, current plastic packaging can be optimized and thereby up to 30% of material and energy can be saved.
I have been working at watttron since March 2020 and what I really like about the company is working at eye level i.e. flat hierarchies. New ideas are always welcomed here. Also the company is very flexible and allows its employees to work from home, when need be. For instance, in the past months it was always possible to work from home and take care of kids. Issues like these have never caused any problem here at watttron.
Watttron is a former spin-off of the Institute for Natural Materials Technology at the Technical University of Dresden and the Fraunhofer Institute for Processing Machines and Packaging Technology Dresden. The founding team comprising Sascha Bach and Marcus Stein had been researching on innovative heat technology since 2007 and finally founded the company in 2016.
The heating technology can be used in many industrial processes – practically everywhere where high-precision heat distribution is required. In addition to the packaging industry, these include the automotive industry, chemical and pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology, microelectronics, etc.

If your company was an animal, what would it be and why?
