After 34 years, Franz Demmelmair, CFO of Adelholzener, will retire at the end of November. He was the company’s CFO for 25 years. From December, Peter Lachenmeir will take over the function of Chief Financial Officer.

The new Chief Financial Officer

Peter Lachenmeir has been with Adelholzener since 2018. He is active in the areas of technology, logistics and production, as managing director and since December he has also been appointed as managing director in the area of finance. Previously, he had held the position of Managing Director at Grünbeck for 20 years. The company is well known for the treatment of water. His activities in the company included the entire supply chain, including production, and the commercial sector.

How Demmelmair shaped the company

Franz Demmelmair introduced the ecologically sustainable PET reusable and individual glass container to the company, among other things dedicating himself strongly to expanding capacity. In addition, six new filling lines were put into operation. Sustainability is important not only to Adelholzener, but also to other companies such as Sanpuro, which is also active in the water sector.

His colleague Stefan Hoechter, who is responsible for sales and marketing, is of the opinion that Franz Demmelmair, through his know-how and prudent entrepreneurial thinking, has shaped the company over the last 30 years.
