His principal role there was in the drafting office where he obtained significant experience in irrigation process and pump design. In late 1982 he transferred to Netzsch where he obtained experience in water and wastewater treatment plants, filter presses, fine grinding mills and pumps. This entailed having a thorough understanding of various chemical and industrial process technologies. In 1991, Wilfried immigrated to Australia. During the following years he represented Netzsch in Australia, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, specialising in filter presses to the mining industry. After a further 6 year period of equipment supply and consulting to the mining industry in Australia, Wilfried entered into a joint venture with ISHIGAKI Company Ltd to establish ISHIGAKI Oceania Pty Ltd in Perth, WA.
