Why Bizerba prides itself on being ‘stronger together’
For more than 150 years, Bizerba has been a pioneer in the food industry with its world-leading weighing, slicing and labelling technologies.
Underpinning the German firm’s everyday operations is the motto ‘stronger together’, which is adhered to and embraced by every team from sales to human resources.
The IT department, containing around 150 employees in various locations across the globe, is no different.
Heading up this function is Dr. Christian Hürter, Director of Global IT, who joined the company just over two years ago in February 2021.
Dr Hürter leads the talented team of IT specialists, around 100 of whom are based at Bizerba’s headquarters, near Stuttgart, with the other 50 spread all over the world.
Here, he discusses how the company is overcoming new challenges in a rapidly-evolving digital landscape, reveals why the firm’s IT landscape has been in recovery mode, and explains his fascination with security.
