An era comes to an end
Udo Kurtenbach celebrated 50 years of service in 2021. In the 50 years he managed the fortunes of the company for almost 40 years. He made Kurtenbach Modellbau GmbH what it is today as the successor to the senior boss Josef Kurtenbach: a medium-sized company that looks expectantly and well-equipped to the future.
On January 1st, 2022, the time had come to hand over the business and concerns to the next generation, his long-standing authorized signatory and second managing director Gregor Kraus.
Mr. Kurtenbach will continue to support us in 2022 with his valuable advice.
The entire team at Kurtenbach Modellbau GmbH would like to thank our new senior boss and wish him all the best for the future.
When you retire, you no longer have to do what is profitable, you can do what is worthwhile.
