Heinz is active in the Construction business since more than 30 years. He worked as a Research Engineer at the EMPA (Swiss Federal Materials and Testing Lab) in the field of Structural Strengthening with CFRP materials and developed the first large CFRP Cables for a cable stayed bridge. He was a long-term member of the CEN TC104 standardization committee “Structural Strengthening”.

Since 1998 with Sika, he introduced the CFRP technologies to the market and they are now State of the Art on a global scale. Heinz then moved position internally and was active in the Concrete business, developing special devices for cement and concrete handling for a few years. In 2009 he changed to the Target Market “Roofing” and developed a dedicated Photovoltaic (PV) mounting system for single-ply membrane covered flat roofs. It was designed as a penetration free system, perfectly matching to the companies’ PVC and FPO membranes. He is responsible for the Sustainability related topics and activities in the Corporate organization and was active in the Swiss SIA 279 standardization committee “Thermal Insulation”.
