Inventor Detlef Gneuss will celebrate his 70th birthday
The founder of Gneuss Kunststofftechnik GmbH, Bad Oeynhausen, Germany, Detlef Gneuss, will celebrate his 70th birthday in March 2012. His pioneering spirit and his courage to follow new, unknown paths are the main reasons for the fact that Gneuss Kunststofftechnik has developed within almost 30 years from its foundation to a worldwide-operating technology company with some 50 patents, over 150 employees and more than 30 representatives.
In 1983, Detlef Gneuss founded – together with his wife Christel – the company Gneuss Kunststofftechnik GmbH and developed and implemented for the first time the idea of a rotating melt filtration system for extrusion lines. With the growing success of the Rotary Filtration Systems – more than 4,000 systems are operated on the whole world market today, the company also started to expand.
Detlef Gneuss initiated a generation change within Gneuss Kunststofftechniik GmbH some 5 years ago and smoothly transferred the operative business to his two sons Daniel and Dr. Stephan Gneuss. Since then, Detlef Gneuss has been in a position to focus on his passion for research and development.
