Not wishing to stand in his way, the Supervisory Board thanked Dr. Krasmann expressly for his extreme commitment and his enormous contribution towards the successful strategic realignment of the Wilo Group of Companies. The Chairman of the Supervisory Board, Dr. Heinz-Gerd Stein, further extolled the important role that Dr. Krasmann has played in bringing about the Company’s market leadership in both technology and quality and wished him all the best for the future.
