Walter Horsch passed away

With great sadness we mourn the passing of our co-founder and former managing director


You can never give enough, you will be rewarded for everything several times in your life.

This was the motto of Walter Horsch’s life. He started as a farmer, but soon discovered his entrepreneurial skills and in the circle of the extended family founded/managed several companies. In the mid-Eighties he was the most important co-founder of the HORSCH Maschinen GmbH and mainly responsible for the financial sector. Due to his honorary commitment in the German Agricultural Society (DLG) and in other honorary positions he opened many doors for the young company. Based on his Christian conviction he, as an entrepreneurial visionary, shaped the company with his clear values and provided it with a valuable, sound fundament. Honesty, straightforwardness, integrity, confidence, buoyancy, culture of forgiving, empathy, extreme sense of justice and humility were the most essential of his characteristics. At the age of 70 he retired from active management, but he remained very close to the company and was still an active partner. He was deeply grateful for the success of the company. Our sympathy goes to his wife, his children and his relatives.
