Generation change at Hechenbichler

After 44 years in business, we hand over our company to younger hands. Our goal was that Hechenbichler GmbH continues to exist as an independent and family-run company.

At the same time, it was important to us that all employees stay in the company. We have now succeeded in achieving this.

For many years the Hueter family had held a 20% stake in our company. The Hueter family has now bought 100% of the shares in Hechenbichler GmbH. Effective July 1, 2020, Hanspeter Hueter will take over the sole management.

Hanspeter Hueter is 39 years old, comes from a farming family in Carinthia and studied economics in Innsbruck. During the past 9 years he has worked for McKinsey in numerous international projects, including for agricultural companies. He lives near Innsbruck with his wife and 3 children.

Our whole team stays on board, also the name of the company and the product range are not changed. AMALGEROL and GÜLLEMAX remain the strong core products of our business. As long as necessary, we will help and support the company as much as possible.

We thank all customers and business friends for the decades-long and extraordinary partnership. It has been a privilege to have worked in the most beautiful industry in the world with our wonderful team for farmers in many countries. We think we have made agriculture a little bit better. We are proud of that, we are thankful for that.

We wish our successor Hanspeter and our great team at least as much luck, success and joy at work as we were given.

With kind regards, 

Reinhard and Georg Hechenbichler
