On behalf of all former and current employees of the Max Frank group, it is with regret that I announce that my father died on Sunday, 3rd November 2013. He was 85 years of age and passed away at home in Leiblfing.

Along with his school friend, Heribert Hiendl, he founded Max Frank GmbH & Co. KG in November 1962 and together they built the company. In particular, my father developed a distribution network, initially in Germany and then throughout Europe. He coined the term "FRANK family". This was and is more than mere words, it describes our culture today; respectful relationships with external partners as well as within the company.

In 2001, after 39 years, he handed over the management responsibility to my hands. Meanwhile, our company has grown into one of the leading businesses in the European construction supply industry, and our head office remains in Leiblfing.

My father left a great legacy - both in his private and in his professional environment and he always tried to think of and to be there for the other person. We were all infected by his optimism, his confidence and his modesty.

Many of us have our own personal memories of conversations and moments that we shared with him and his sympathy and solidarity with people was always evident in his actions. All of this remains in our memories.

He was a role model for all of us, especially his own family and we all miss him very much. His thoughts and life remain. It is our duty to continue to develop the company in his spirit.
