Thomas Walker

Thomas, born on 07/09/1968, studied mechanical engineering Bsc. After having done an apprenticeship as machine designer. Afterwards Thomas started to work for a major engine designer, where he stayed for 18 years. The first 8 years he was mainly focused on marine diesel engine tuning and commissioning in the new-building process. That was also the main reason for Thomas to be placed for 12 years in South Korea, the Mekka of Ship- and Marine diesel Engine new-buildings. Thomas was also heading Wartsila’s premises in South Korea, and later responsible for the global 2-stroke service activities within Wartsila.

In 2010 Thomas co-founded Tekomar together with Beat Güttinger. Both have been convinced, to be succesfull in the our own business, if we would be able to innovate the right and simple to use products and to achieve an “easy to deal with” atmosphere between Tekomar and its customers. It might be out of the comfort zone at times, but keeping ourselves questioning about our products and services , further developing and sometimes completly changing our solutions again, keeps us alive and successful.
