Wolfgang Karl –
Chairman of the board

After his apprenticeship as a banker, Wolfgang Karl founded the "INGenieur UNion" (Engineer Union) together with Werner H. Heilmann in Constance, Germany in 1971. The trading company for electronic components, which had just seven employees at that time, formed the nucleus of today's INGUN Group.

As Managing Director, Wolfgang Karl attached great importance to a cooperative relationship with his suppliers and customers. Supported by the boom in the electronics industry in the 70's, INGUN developed into the No. 1 in test technology worldwide in line with Wolfgang Karl's motto “Where I am, is ahead”. In 2007 Wolfgang Karl withdrew from the operative business. However, as Chairman of the Supervisory Board he remains connected to the company and thus continues to support the success of INGUN.
