In Memoriam: Hans Trützschler 1927-2004


Hans Trützschler, managing partner, Trützschler GmbH and Co. KG, Germany, died Dec. 19, 2004, at the age of 77.

Trützschler, together with his cousin, Hermann Trützschler, re-established the company in Monchengladbach following World War II in 1948, expropriating the original company that had been founded in Saxony in 1888 by Paul Heinrich Trützschler and Bruno Gey for the production of fiber preparation machinery. Under the two cousins' leadership, the company became a global leader in the production of such machinery including high-production cards, reaching into the nonwovens and technical textiles sector as well.

From 1958 to 2000, Hans Trützschler served the German Engineering Federation (VDMA). Chairing its Textile Machinery Section from 1976 to 1989, he fostered the globalization of the German textile machinery sector.
He also was involved in the European Committee of Textile Machinery Manufacturers (CEMATEX) from 1976 to 1995, serving as its vice president for 10 years and as president of the Organization Committee that was responsible for ITMA 1991, held in Hannover, Germany.
Trützschler served his local community as a member of the German Metal Industry Advisory Committee and the General Assembly of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, as a lay judge at the Labor Court, and on the Executive Board of the Walter Reiners Foundation. Trützschler received the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany for his personal commitment and services.
