Default Kontronik is mourning

It is with great sadness I report the following.

I received an email this morning from Sabine Konrath who is the wife of Harald Konrath who is Mr Kontronik.

Im sure she would not mind me pasting the email here for all to see as Harald was a very well liked and respected man of whom I never had the pleasure to meet.

My heart felt condolences to Sabine and all of the Kontronik family.


"Dear Ben

On Friday the 19th April, my beloved husband, brilliant engineer and esteemed CEO died in a tragic car accident. His loss will create a great void that will be a challenge for us all.

With great pride and perseverance, Harald and I worked together to build KONTRONIK into a successful company. We have always believed in our KONTRONIK family and I am convinced they will all work together to carry on Harlad’s vision.

The funeral service will be on Friday, April 26th in our Catholic Church

With great teariness

Sabine"


Im sure business will continue as usual but please bear this in mind if you do not get a reply straight away regarding your query.
I can be reached at [email protected] for any technical enquiry and can also try to assist with any other matter as can Charles from Kontronik USA on [email protected] whilst the factory come to terms with this most tragic loss.


RIP Harald
