By Steve Ducker01 July 2021

Only eight weeks after the passing of their long-term CEO Werner Doppstadt, the employees of the Germany-based Doppstadt Group are mourning the loss of his wife, company co-founder Hedwig Doppstadt, who has died aged 83.

Together with her husband and his brother, Hedwig Doppstadt founded the family enterprise in 1965, and has been described as a driving force behind its success.

Today the group has around 700 employees and is a leader in the fields of recycling, environmental technology and resource recovery.

The company said: “From the very beginning, the staff was like a family to Hedwig Doppstadt because she understood that the well-being of the company could only be achieved with a committed team.

“As a trusted person she always lent an ear to her employees and supported them both in job-related and in personal and family matters.

“With her respectful attitude she created a strong team spirit among the staff so that the employees could feel comfortable and develop.”
