IAPMO R&T, North America’s premier third-party testing and certification body for plumbing, mechanical and water treatment products, has enlisted the services of Martin Weiss as Continuous Compliance Inspector for current and prospective European clients. Weiss spent the previous 20 years at Grohe Research and Development Department (Germany) in various technical areas, including thermostats, one-hand mixers, kitchen faucets and sanitary systems. In addition, Weiss served as project supervisor responsible for drinking water systems.
Weiss earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Energy and Heating Technology from the University of Applied Sciences in Giessen-Friedberg, Germany, and began his career as a test engineer at the Grohe Function Laboratory. Over the next two decades he would serve as deputy supervisor, supervisor and head of department. His achievements at Grohe include overseeing the opening of a new laboratory, which included merging three laboratories into one.
“I am extremely pleased to be able to work with a company that sets quality standards and maintains excellent customer relationships,” Weiss said. “I am happy to contribute my experience from a company with high-quality values to IAPMO. In particular, the growing markets of drinking water systems and the increasingly important resource-saving water consumption are very close to my heart. I would also like to support customers at work on projects related to these topics and expanding customer service.”
Weiss will assist Director of European Certification Programs Günter Schieweck in providing customer service to IAPMO R&T’s European clients and conducting necessary continuous compliance inspections for the maintenance of their listings.
“We are glad to have Martin working with the IAPMO R&T team in Europe,” said Ohannes Dembekjian, Executive Vice President of Continuous Compliance for IAPMO R&T. “He brings extensive knowledge and expertise in product certification, inspection and customer service.”
