The company considers itself the country’s leading producer of die casting and rubber injection moulding machinery. Wobbe will help Yizumi formulate marketing and product strategies to achieve the company’s goal of internationalizing itself. He will lead the development of innovative products and processes, upgrade product quality, and establish technical centers in China and Germany.
