Mathias Wolpiansky new CEO of the punker Group

Fresh spirit for Europe’s leading manufacturer of metal radial fan wheels

On January 1, 2022, Mathias Wolpiansky took over the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the punker Group from Dr. Henning Bähren.

After studying at the TH Bingen (Dipl.-Ing. Wirtschaftsingenieur) and the HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management (MBA), Mathias Wolpiansky successfully built up business units at Oerlikon-Balzers and Jenoptik respectively. Most recently, he was managing director of DMG MORI Additive GmbH, which is part of the DMG Mori Group, the world market leader for machine tools.

punker has been part of many solutions worldwide for decades and is always at the heart of the developments. I would like to build on this with the entire team. Our ambition: punker is the first partner for our customers. That’s how we move the best.

Certified Environmental Management at punker


punker GmbH is now certified according to the DIN EN ISO 14001 standard and can prove with the corresponding certificate and seal how important the protection of the environment is to us.

Certification according to the DIN EN ISO 14001 standard requires that a company obtains a comprehensive understanding of its environmental impact and attempts to continuously minimize it. During two visits in September and November 2021, we were able to convince the auditors from TÜV NORD that we meet these requirements.

The “environmental team” of punker GmbH led by our environmental management officer Martin Brunkert continuously analyzes which options we have to further increase the efficiency of our processes in order to ultimately reduce the CO2 footprint of our fan wheels.
