“I was always the foreign minister”, Hubert Heller described his role in an interview in the past anniversary year 2019. As the ‘foreign minister’, he forged a very deep connection with ‘his’ customers, placing their individual needs and requirements in the focus of all business activities. He felt particularly attached to his employees. Until the end, it was very important and a matter of course to him to personally thank the employees for their many years of loyalty to the company during the annual Employment Anniversary Celebration.
After taking his well-deserved retirement in 1999, Hubert Heller took the Chair of the Supervisory Board of Heller GmbH and Gebr. Heller Maschinenfabrik GmbH, which he held until 2007. Even after his retirement, he took a keen interest in the company’s development. Visits to the headquarters and staying in close contact were important to him until the end of his life.
Hubert Heller rendered outstanding services to the machine tool industry in Germany. For many years, he represented the company in a voluntary capacity in various association committees.
“The company was his life. With Hubert Heller’s death, we lose a leading business personality who has been an important advisor to us until the end. Our sympathy goes to his wife and his family. We will always honour his memory,” Klaus Winkler said on behalf of the HELLER Group’s management.
