(Vice Chairman of the Board and Treasurer)
Franz runs a medium-sized group of companies together with his brother Friederich in the fourth generation. Since 2010, the business administrator has been the managing partner of Pulp-Tec, a specialist for technical packaging made of moulded pulp.
The versatility of the possible applications, the complete sustainability in the sense of a circular economy and the naturalness of the products have inspired him from the first moment for paper pulp.
It is a matter of the heart for the father of two daughters to establish moulded fiber as an ecological alternative to plastic packaging and to make our world more sustainable and ecological for us and generations to come.
