Member of the Managing Board
The passion that the EPC Group has for engineering and plant construction has been passed down through many family generations from its founders, the Henkel family. As shown by old documents, machinery from the Henkel family has been awarded prizes at a number of exhibitions as early as 1894.
Almost a century later, the first company of EPC Group was founded as EPC Engineering Consulting GmbH in Rudolstadt, Germany. After the reunification of Germany, the success story continued where it had begun in Thuringia, Germany. Since its inception EPC Group has continuously developed, formed new subsidiaries and expanded its international business portfolio.
