CHARLOTTE, N.C. – HUESKER inc., an international manufacturer of geosynthetics, is proud to announce the addition of Lilma “Lilly” Schimmel, MSCE, P.E., to its US-based staff. Schimmel’s hiring represents a new, expansion-drive change for the company, as engineering has been predominantly performed out of the international corporate headquarters in Germany.
“HUESKER’s growth in the Americas has been significant,” says Sven Schröer. “Lilly brings a great amount of international and domestic design engineering experience with geosynthetics. Her skills and presence here in the United States fit seamlessly into the support, expertise, and responsiveness we provide our clients. We are increasing our presence in North America and are internationally known to be the premier innovator of soil reinforcement applications with geosynthetics. Lilly’s expertise will allow us to anchor our foothold in the North American market.”
Schimmel will be based in Charlotte, North Carolina and will be primarily responsible for design engineering services in the US.
Shortly after obtaining her Bachelor’s degree in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Schimmel emigrated to the United States, where she obtained a Master’s in Civil Engineering at the University of Delaware. She has worked as a geotechnical and civil engineer for high-profile, international firms, including Woodward Clyde, Jacobs, and URS, where she also served as a lab assistant manager.
