After almost 25 years, engineer Ralf Odenwald has left BKP Berolina Polyester GmbH & Co. KG. He began his career at the company in 1995. It was not long before he became an authorised legal representative, then the managing director, and finally, in 1998, partner.
Originally from Lower Franconia in Bavaria, he led the company into the new millennium, developing and establishing the Berolina-Liner System, which is still the industry standard today, as well as Berolina BKP’s GRP pipe coating. Delivery of the first Berolina-Liner to the Teerbau Rohrtechnik GmbH (now Arkil Inpipe GmbH) in 1997 represents just one of the milestones Mr Odenwald achieved.
Ralf Odenwald paved the way for the BEROLINA Group right up until BKP Berolina Polyester GmbH & Co. KG was established as an independent new company, where he was predominantly responsible for its growth. He was also responsible for the company’s move from Berlin-Staaken to Velten, where employees found a significant increase in capacity and improved production and working conditions.
He manoeuvred the company through difficult times, too, and was able to persuade first the Greiffenberger AG in 1999 and, most recently, T3 Holding GmbH in 2016 of BKP’s potential and to acquire shares in the company.
Everyone at BKP Berolina would like to thank Ralf Odenwald once again for all he has accomplished. He was dedicated to the company and will be remembered by everyone with whom he crossed paths.
We wish him all the best for the future and look forward to seeing him again on other occasions.
