Martin Tauber, Managing Director of the Tauber Engineering GmbH

Martin Tauber - commitment and experience

Born in 1956, Martin Tauber started to study mechanical engineering in 1976. In 1980 he changed to the Faculty of Architecture and in 1984 completed his studies with great success.

For two years he worked in architects' offices in Germany and then for a further two years he worked in engineering consultancies and with metal construction firms for facade projects in various European countries.

Equipped with this experience, Martin Tauber founded his own engineering consultancy for facade technology in Offenbach am Main, which was converted to a limited company (GmbH) in 2000. In 2005 he renamed his company "Tauber Engineering" to reflect its increasing international aspect.

After almost two decades in the construction and facade field, Martin Tauber can look back on hundreds of successfully concluded projects. He not only kept pace with the complete change of working tools in this period, but he himself took active part: Specially for facade construction, Tauber developed the CAD software application "ATHENA" for AutoCAD, now marketed via the company CAD-PLAN which was founded in 1990.

Martin Tauber's speciality is creative solutions for tricky problems. His ideas and developments have contributed to the extraordinary technological progress registered in facade technology in recent years and which will also continue in the future. His experience and expertise make him an internationally recognised expert in his field.

To establish the professional and employment field of "Facade technology planning", Martin Tauber, together with 23 professional colleagues, founded the Association for Facade Technology (Verband für Fassadentechnik, VFT) and became its president three years later.

To cover the long-term personnel demands of his own company, but also with the social commitment of providing young people with first class training and a promising apprenticeship, Tauber trains specialists for metal construction technology at the professional academy in Mosbach.
