SCHMIDT-KUPPLUNG mourns the loss of Walter Haarmann

It is with deep sadness and respect that we bid farewell to our company founder

Dipl.-Ing. Walter Haarmann

He died on May 15, 2019 at the age of 94.


Since SCHMIDT-KUPPLUNG GmbH was established 54 years ago, building trust with employees, customers and suppliers has always been Walter Haarmann's great concern. Through his charismatic personality, he managed to ensure long-term, constructive partnerships. He focused his thinking on possible solutions, not problems.


With this far-sighted strategy, Walter Haarmann led SCHMIDT-KUPPLUNG GmbH to healthy growth and ensured a good work atmosphere even in difficult times.

As an entrepreneur of a family-run company, his primary focus was on “old values” such as performance, trust, commitment, consistency and high employee satisfaction.


Until recently, his health allowed him to be physically present in the company as a caring partner. We feel so grateful to have had the chance of interacting with an inspiring entrepreneur who always distinguished himself for his great sense of responsibility and reliability.


Walter Haarmann lived for his company. His family and Mr Ulrich Bosse will continue his legacy. We will remain connected to him with the utmost gratitude.
