Change of Managing Director at KUZ

With effect from April 1, 2024, Dr. Matthias R. Jacob is the new Managing Director of Kunststoff-Zentrum in Leipzig gGmbH (KUZ). Before joining KUZ, Dr. Jacob was Chief Operating Officer at CERQ. Here, he played a leading role in the product development, design, industrial engineering and production of large energy storage systems and their components.

He began his career at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU), where he completed his doctorate on biodegradable plastics for industrial applications. He then worked at Continental in research and development in the field of tire development / 3D printing. This was followed by his work as a senior researcher and project manager at MLU, where he successfully led projects on process optimization for continuous production and acted as a supervisor for scientists at the institute. His passion for innovation and commitment to excellence promise to be a valuable asset to the KUZ under his leadership. We are delighted to welcome him as the new Managing Director at KUZ. He takes over from Dr. Thomas Wolff, whom the KUZ would like to take this opportunity to thank for his energetic and very valuable commitment and wish him all the best for the future.
