Carl-August Heinz: “Carletta, as my daughter, as well as my successor in the company management, I wish you much luck and joy, over hopefully good and happy processes, for strength in unfortunate outcomes of plans and decisions made, happiness and courage to keep looking forward in case of setbacks.”
Carletta Heinz: “On this way and on a given occasion also here again my greatest thanks and highest respect to you, dear Dad for your achievements of the last 50 years and thus for your life’s work! I am proud to be able to follow such footsteps and will do my best to fill them and continue on our path! Thank you, also, that despite your retirement, you will continue to advise the company and I for a while. I would have really granted you a quieter pension and hope that you will be able to start and enjoy it, in full, next year at the latest!
About Carl-August Heinz
Carl-August Heinz, born in 1950, joined the family business 50 years ago and took over its management 43 years ago. In 1976, after his studies as a business graduate, he originally wanted to gain external experience with an American glass manufacturer. However, due to the unexpectedly early death of his father Adolf, he had to succeed him as sole managing director in 1977. Together with his younger brother Ludwig, he became the main shareholder. In 2003 the younger brother withdrew from the company and sold Carl-August the majority of his shares. Since then, Carl-August has been the sole head of the company and has now handed over his life’s work to his daughter Carletta Heinz.
