Dieter Weissenrieder

CEO + Founder, Weiss-Aug; Chair - the Weiss-Aug Group
Dieter Weissenrieder emigrated from Germany in 1960 as a tool and die maker to work for his uncle’s tooling business. He quickly became the manager of the company, and after working for the family business for 10 years, the company was sold to a large firm. He then founded Weiss-Aug in 1972 with his partner Kurt Augustin, while pursuing his industrial engineering degree at NJIT.

Dieter’s vision has led to the growth of Weiss-Aug, and now the Weiss-Aug Group.
