The founder of Bock Energietechnik has retired almost 40 years after starting the business.

Werner Bock retired from the company at the end of 2015.

He has been succeeded by his son, Günther Bock, who since 2012 had been actively cooperating as general manager in his father's company.

In a small internal celebration Günther Bock thanked his father for his life’s work, which he would continue in the second generation carefully and with engagement.

Werner Bock will remain closely linked with the company. With his decades of experience he will be a consultant for the company in terms of configurations and calculations of melting technology.

Günther Bock will be the sole owner of the company.
