Dear business partner and customer,

on January 30, our long-time managing director Mr. Paul Spliethoff passed away much too early at the age of only 60 after a serious illness that was endured with great patience.

Together with Paul Rampelmann, Dirk Hartmann, his brother Martin Spliethoff and many other employees, Paul Spliethoff has led our company to its present success over the past decades.

We are successful regionally and throughout Germany in the areas of steel construction as well as municipal and motor equipment. With products of the brand "Platz Max" we are world market leader.

The company Rampelmann & Spliethoff will remain a family business. Paul Spliethoff's wife Karin will take over her husband's shares in the company and act as a partner together with Dirk Hartmann.

His daughter Marie Spliethoff has already succeeded him as managing director and will take over the management of the company alongside Dirk Hartmann, and with the support of her uncle Martin Spliethoff in the operative business.

His son Bernd Spliethoff also joined the company in March and will support sales and the workshop until his further training as a master agricultural machinery mechatronics technician in October 2021, thus setting all the course for his future in the company.

We, the Rampelmann & Spliethoff families, will continue to write the success story with our proven team. You as business partners and customers can continue to be assured as usual: We are there for you whenever and wherever you need us. As you have known it from us in the past, we will keep it in the future. If you have any questions, the contact persons you know will still be there for you.

Your families Rampelmann & Spliethoff

Dirk Hartmann and Marie Spliethoff
