Explanation:
This is a team/workshop led bei a Meister. This is a title obtained
in the German/Austrian etc apprenticeship system. Kind of like a
certified craftsman.

Eurodicatom translates Meister as 'master (craftsman)'
or 'foreman'
In this context, I would think that every company division has
10 master craftsmen working for them.
