In Memoriam – Günther Merz

The founder of our company, Günther Merz, passed away in September 2005 aged 80.

KOREMA® not only lost its highly esteemed figurehead but also an exceptional human being and entrepreneur. He provided help and advice to KOREMA®, his life’s work, right through to the final weeks of his life.

Günther Merz established KOREMA® in May 1968 at its current location in the central Rhine-Main region of Germany. Under his leadership KOREMA® became the first company in the industry to use completely non-asbestos woven materials, resulting in numerous patents worldwide.

We shall honour the achievements of our company founder Günther Merz and his memory.
