20 Jan Generation Change at EPflex
Together, Georg and Dr. Johannes Uihlein will succeed their father Bernhard Uihlein at the beginning of 2021. As the previous managing director and founder of EPflex Feinwerktechnik GmbH, he is now handing over the management of the company after more than a quarter of a century to his two sons, whom he will continue to support in an advisory capacity.
Georg and Dr. Johannes Uihlein, both of whom have been with the company since 2016, have consistently planned and implemented this step together with their father since joining the family business. Initially as an employee in the Quality Management department, Dr. Johannes Uihlein quickly took over its management and, in the further course, also responsibility for the Development department. In the first step, Georg Uihlein conceives a new brand concept and thus modernizes the external appearance of the company, in order to expand and control sales in the second step. As dual leaders, the two brothers continue to run the business from now on and look to the future with confidence despite the current pandemic.
For the same reason, the company will not be holding its usual ceremony for the time being. Mr. Uihlein Senior therefore addressed the approximately 400 employees in a Christmas message via video to express “heartfelt thanks once again for all the joint, successful years”. Many have been on board with EPflex since its beginnings.
