Personnel Senior Partner Joachim Schröter (80) has passed away
Joachim Schröter joined the company in 1953 and, together with his brother Heinrich, took over the business shares from the founder in 1972. He was active in the company for 53 years, most recently as a shareholder from 2006 to 2012. Joachim Schröter played a significant role in the successful growth of the company, which celebrates its 70th anniversary this year and, with around 200 employees, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of equipment for the food industry.
In 2012, he retired as a shareholder. His replacement had been successfully prepared. His son, Klaus Schröter, joined the company in 1993 and became a managing partner in 1999. His grand-cousin Dietrich Schröter, the son of his nephew, Max Schröter, has been working for the company since 2002 and is also a managing partner since 2008.
Now Joachim Schröter has passed away unexpectedly at a sprightly 80 years of age. His companions – family, friends, employees, customers - mourn the loss of a remarkable entrepreneur.
