Leaving due to retirement. But production manager, Hermann Kühl, will be retained by DESIGNA as a consultant

A joint success story – for 24 years Hermann Kühl has worked at DESIGNA in Kiel. The qualified electrical engineer initially gained experience in Augsburg, Stuttgart and France before joining DESIGNA on 1 October 1989 and working his way through various different departments.

From production control and planning to head of production – his repertoire of knowledge has steadily increased over the years. "The varying activities and challenges relating to the organization of major orders plus the chance to collaborate with pleasant colleagues made working at DESIGNA an incomparable experience," says Hermann Kühl.

The Kiel native particularly likes the city's proximity to the sea and the fresh air, which he likes to enjoy with his family in the garden or on the beach. "After a long day at work my home is my ideal retreat. The perfect day is rounded off with potato fritters with apple sauce, accompanied by music from the Beatles, Stones or The Doors."

On 1 September 2013 we waved Hermann Kühl off into an active retirement, as he is expected to remain with DESIGNA as an external consultant until February 2014. The entire team would like to say a big THANK YOU for our many successful years together, and is looking forward to continuing to make use of the extensive wealth of knowledge that makes Hermann Kühl so indispensable to DESIGNA.


In 1951 DESIGNA became Germany's first producer and supplier of parking meters. DESIGNA's history of innovation continued. At the end of the seventies, the Kiel-based enterprise was able to to introduce its first fully automatic parking system. The company's programme has now been further developed to encompass fully comprehensive solutions, from the design and planning phase right through to the installation and service of fully automatic parking systems. The experience DESIGNA has acquired over the last 50 years continues to benefit customers at every stage of the project.
