Head of Engineering

Christoph Horstmann

One can truly call him an expert in construction. Commuting between our offices in Mannheim and Doetinchem, Christoph coordinates all mechanical engineering aspects for our machines. As head of this department, he proudly tells about our portfolio and team:


“When I started working at ROHR-IDRECO, I brought with me years of experience in the dredging and pumping branches. This is advantageous in my current position, in which I work on the improvement of our product line, especially regarding standardization. With a strong base of standardization, the mechanical engineering for our machines can be performed faster.”

Proud of the portfolio

“Our product range is one I feel proud of. First of all, we have a complete portfolio, which allows us to deliver a total solution to customers. In addition, our pumps are very efficient and our machines know a high level of automation. That together makes our dredgers intelligent. We strive for minimum losses during dredging.”

A good mixture

“I also like how we work as a team: as colleagues, we understand and trust each other. And our engineering team has a good mixture between some older colleagues with a lot of experience in the sector and young intelligent people who come up with good new ideas.”

Sportive rides

In his spare time, Christoph can be found exploring the surroundings: “I like to take a walk, go hiking, or ride my bike. During winter, skiing is my favourite hobby.”
