KAESER Welcomes New MD

KAESER Compressors Australia has a new Managing Director, Mr Jarno Manzke, who was officially appointed on April 2nd 2024.

With over 17 years of experience with KAESER across Germany and North America, Mr Manzke brings with him a wealth of knowledge and expertise. Holding three Master’s degrees and a PhD in Organisational Leadership, his passion is to create impactful teams and build inspiring relationships – both inside and outside KAESER.

The Manzke family recently swapped the snowy landscapes of Canada for the sunny shores of Melbourne’s outer east. While Canada and Australia share many similarities, Mr Manzke couldn’t help but chuckle at his encounters with some uniquely Aussie quirks. From deciphering the true meaning of “having a barbie” to mastering the art of ordering a “flat white,” Mr Manzke is diving headfirst into the colourful world of Australian-isms.

Speaking about his tenure in Australia, Mr Manzke said, “it is an honour to work for KAESER over 3 continents and I am thankful for the opportunity to spearhead the next chapter in the story of KAESER Australia. This is an exciting time for us, I am looking forward to growing the business and leading KAESER Australia towards a bright future.”

Established in 1990, the Australian subsidiary of KAESER KOMPRESSOREN has flourished and expanded. The headquarters were based in Melbourne’s south-eastern industrial area of Dandenong South, and state branches were founded. Partnerships were forged with distributors across the nation, and for a long time KAESER Australia encompassed New Zealand as well.

It became apparent that the existing headquarters were no longer sufficient for the growing business. On the existing Zenith Road site, a new 4,500 square metre facility including offices, warehouse and workshop was opened in 2023. The drawn-out project navigated the restrictions of COVID as well as keeping the warehouse, workshop and offices functioning during the entire process.

KAESER Australia is currently hiring in many roles across the nation. To join the team, see au.kaeser.com for more information.
