Albert Schomburg celebrates his 75th birthday
On the occasion of his 75th birthday, Albert Schomburg welcomed friends, business partners and his family to his anniversary reception. In his speech, the current chairman of the SCHOMBURG company group advisory committee delivered a clear commitment to the Detmold location in East Westpahlia. Furthermore SCHOMBURG is to remain a family business. Takeover bids will be continually rejected. Albert Schomburg sees the group of companies today in good emotional and substantial shape. The organisational redirection lead by the three managers Ralph Schomburg, Dr. Jens Hofele and Alexander Weber has proved its worth. In the future Weber will lead all national and international business activities. Ralph Schomburg will be responsible for marketing, buying and IT. Dr. Hofele heads up the research and development, finance and production. Albert-Johannes Schomburg markets Schomburg products in Asia.
Albert Schomburg joined his father's factory in 1961, producing chemicals for the protection of buildings. Under his leadership the company developed into a global supplier of system construction products. In 2008 he handed over the operational leadership to the current management team. He is however always available to advise in his position as chairman of the SCHOMBURG company group advisory committee. His insight "think global - act local" further marks the company philosophy and documents the vision and economical success, which essentially exists due to the performance and willingness to perform of all employees.
