Andreas WINISTOERFER

Carbo-Link AG
CEO
Dr Andreas Winistoerfer is the founding partner and CEO of Carbo-Link AG, based just outside of Zurich, Switzerland.
He studied MSc. Materials Science at Cranfield University, England before completing his PhD in Engineering at the World-renowned ETH University in Zurich, Switzerland. Dr. Andreas Winistoerfer continues to actively engage with ETH University, lecturing on Advanced Composites for the Department of Materials.
During his studies and further work with EMPA, the Swiss Federal Laboratory for Material Science and Technology, Dr. Winistoerfer pioneered various technologies and solutions for lightweight, high strength CFRP tension members. Commercial applications of this technology began to emerge and Dr. Andreas Winistoerfer founded Carbo-Link AG in 2000 with the aim of delivering high value solutions to industry through innovation in composites.
Carbo-Link has since led the way in CFRP tension and compression members in various industries including marine, civil engineering and industrial applications. Carbo-Link is now an aerospace & defence certified (AS9100D) organisation supplying T1 structural components.
Dr. Winistoerfer continues to add value to clients through his deep and thorough understanding of carbon fibre materials, their complexities and intricacies, whilst optimising where, when and how to best implement this technology. Carbon fibre solutions developed at Carbo-Link, under the stewardship of Dr. Winistoerfer, have been used in various America’s Cup campaigns worldwide, as crane pendants on thousands of Liebherr crawler cranes up 220m in height with 300t lifting capacities, the first ever bridge with CFRP cables and now the only organisation with type approval for carbon fibre bridge cable applications, in Formula 1 and high-performance motor racing and flown around the World in Solar Impulse.
As composite uptake and implementation rapidly expands, Dr. Andreas Winistoerfer continues to drive industry forward with his passion and deep understanding of how clients can best maximise operational value through carbon fibre.
