On 29/10/2009 former major shareholder Heinz A. Kurtz dies. He has shaped the history of Kösel like no other since 1979. His responsibility for his staff, the economic success and the company culture were his life. We are proud to say that he managed to achieve something extraordinary.

Erik Kurtz, Christa Gräf and Michael Köhnlein continue the management of the company as managing partners.
