Family history shows that the Arlt’s, for more than 150 years, where involved in technical matters. First trained mechanic I know of was 1829 born Karl Martin Arlt, who became one of the early train-drivers of Germany. I remember to listen to the stories told by my grandmother – complaining that her husband, 1893 born Hermann E Arlt, a trained metal-turner, ruined the kitchens table cloth with chemicals. This was when he bought his first camera. He developed the exposed film on his own. I like to collect and read books, I’m interested in science, history, dogs and volunteering in political activities on municipal level. But the most important “hobby” was and is still – travelling to far away countries and meet people there from all walks of life!

My homepage is about this favorite passions.

Arlt family motto is “immer weiter” which translates “go on further”.

The professions of my ancestors cover a wide range of industries. But the majority worked as civil servants, mainly in the military (related) field. My father, H E Arlt, a professional soldier in WW2, started his own business after the war in the area of technical sales.

I began early a apprenticeship – programme as trained mechanic.

After finishing the military service in the German Airforce, I achieved a University degree in Business Administration and Mechanical Engineering. Now, with more than 40 years of engineering and projects experience gathered in six German technology leading groups, I am working as a freelance consultant for clients in the Asia-Pacific region. Most projects of today are in the fields of pharmaceutical production or logistics technology. Also as tribute to the Corona pandemics, I settled down a bit more in recent times. And I got involved into local politics. Now I spend time and effort in the city-council of my town as member of the FREIE WAEHLER (free voters party) .
