Peter Otten did his apprenticeship at a big German steel producer and started his “export life” there in 1973, dealing with exports of high quality plates.

In 1977 he went to a German steel trading company with huge export activities.
Being for a time sales representative in Saudi Arabia, doing market researches in Middle East and SEA countries, doing “emergency travelling” for a special task, building up businesses in Southern Europe => that was his job.

During all the time he was involved in evening and remote studies, mainly for languages and export issues.

In 1988 he started as export manager for Steinhaus GmbH. In the late 90s, he concentrated more and more on the food industry sector with special belts for tunnel ovens. As a pure practitioner, he learned from the field, by innumerous visits to clients in ~40 countries around the globe.

In that way he gained the sound basis for developing both technically and commercially this product and its possibilities as well as accessories for that.

Articles written by him are published on this website.
