Based in Germany and temporarily in Silicon Valley, California, Mettendorff has held various managing positions in marketing, sales, business development and engineering and has directed entire business units.

The addition of Manfred Mettendorff to DEV Systemtechnik’s management team strengthens the company’s expertise as the firm continues to expand into world markets.
