GERMANEINGINEER.COM’s track record includes a significant presence at BMW.

Mr. Rebo, founder and owner of GERMANENGINEER.COM, first joined BMW as Quality Manager at their main facility in Munich1 from 2002 to 2005. His responsibilities included driving dynamics testing and quality analysis for the BMW 1 and 3 Series. He was also instrumental in setting up BMW’s brand new plant in Leipzig2, Germany, where he oversaw the construction and installation of production equipment, particularly in the Quality Control Center.

Later, from May to December 2017, Mr. Rebo took on a key role as a freelance project manager for a BMW project in Munich, Germany and Shenyang, China. On behalf of Siemens, he led the development of a new test rig for BMW’s advanced driver assistance systems, including radar and video cameras. Under his leadership, a team of engineers navigated the intricacies of mechanical, electronic, and software development for the new test rig. The project culminated with the successful installation of five test benches at BMW’s Munich facility and two more at BMW’s Shenyang, China facility.3

Mr. Rebo’s association with BMW experienced another highlight from December 2020 to January 2021, when he was engaged by GROB-Werke as a freelance interim on-site manager for a BMW project in Dingolfing, Germany.4 Here, he skillfully oversaw the ramp-up of battery production for BMW’s electric cars (iX, iX3, i4) and motorcycles (CE04). His process optimization of plasma treatment, module stacking, case welding, cell contact system welding, thermal management system bonding, and end-of-line testing resulted in a significant increase in both the number and quality of batteries produced.

Building on his success, Mr. Rebo was awarded another contract by KUKA for a BMW project from January 2024 to March 2024, again located in Dingolfing, Germany. During this engagement, he played a key role in further enhancing the production capabilities of BMW’s electric and hybrid vehicle batteries. The implementation of the KANBAN system under his leadership minimized project delays and accelerated the start of production for the next generation of battery modules.
