Death of Manfred Wolf
On the morning of Wednesday, June 19, Manfred Wolf, a member of the Executive Board of Coperion Holding GmbH, Konstanz (Germany), unexpectedly died of a sudden heart attack at the age of 64. He passed away while taking part in a meeting for the Coperion Group, the Plant Engineering Group of the Georg Fischer Corporation.
With his death, both the Georg Fischer Corporation and Coperion Group have lost a longstanding and remarkable senior executive.
After completing his engineering degree at Aachen technical university, Manfred Wolf went on to study management. He then held a number of sales management positions before transferring to Waeschle in Weingarten in 1971, initially as sales director and subsequently as head of all Waeschle's sales and marketing activities. He became managing director of the company in 1975.
Manfred Wolf directed Coperion Waeschle's international activities with great and lasting success, thereby making a substantial contribution to the development of the Plant Engineering Group within Georg Fischer for many years. On March 1 this year, Manfred Wolf, along with Dr. Hans-Jörg Pfeiffer, was appointed to the Executive Board of Coperion Holding GmbH, where he was primarily responsible for Coperion's international sales network and uniform global corporate image.
Manfred Wolf rendered great service to the plant engineering business in his many successful years in the industry. The Board of Directors and Executive Board of Georg Fischer AG and the entire Coperion Group have lost a kind and professional colleague and wish to extend their sincere condolences to Manfred Wolf's family.
