Jan 26 2009

Dr Georg H Endress has passed away at the age of 84. Family and foundation guarantee the continuance of his life’s work.
The Endress+Hauser Group is mourning their founder Dr Georg H Endress. The entrepreneur died on 14 December 2008 after a brief, grave illness a few weeks before his 85th birthday, surrounded by his family in Arlesheim, Switzerland. Employees of the family-owned Group around the world reacted with sorrow at the news. Their deepest sympathies are conveyed to his wife Alice Endress-Vogt and the couple’s large family.
As an entrepreneur and patron, Georg H Endress leaves a thriving work, distinguished by its farsightedness and courage, transcending borders in many respects. The core of Georg H Endress life’s work is the establishment of the Endress+Hauser Group. From small beginnings, the Group developed into an international company for industrial measurement
and automation engineering with over 8,300 employees worldwide. “I wanted to prove to myself, my family and the world that I could carry an idea through to success,” Georg H Endress once stated in reply to the question of why he became an entrepreneur. And with his unique sense of humor, he added: “When we were expecting our third child, my wife challenged me to do something so I became an entrepreneur.”
