The president of Lechler GmbH, Professor Walter H. Lechler, unfortunately passed away on Thursday, May 17, 2018, at the age of 75. His death came suddenly and unexpectedly for his family, friends and all the staff.

Professor Lechler was an outstanding and extremely successful entrepreneur personality and his influence extended far beyond the region of Metzingen. In addition to his function as Managing Director of Lechler GmbH, he was also Chairman of the Supervisory Board of ElringKlinger AG for many years. Professor Lechler has always been particularly concerned about social responsibility, not only for his employees. The Lechler Foundation supports many charitable and social projects every year.

In his farsighted nature, Professor Lechler has taken timely precautions in recent years to ensure the continued existence of his companies and to provide for the event of his death. In this respect, the company is well positioned and the course is set for the future of the Lechler Group.
