HeidelbergCement mourns for Dr. Adolf Merckle
It is with great shock that we have learned about the death of Dr. Adolf Merckle. As a shareholder and member of the Supervisory Board he had very close ties with our company for many decades. Dr. Merckle actively accompanied and marked the dynamic development of HeidelbergCement from a medium sized southern German cement company to one on of the world’s largest building materials producers.
We owe him a lot of respect and thanks.
Our deepest sympathies go to his family.
