C.H. Sandler passes weeks before turning 80.


Nonwovens producer Sandler AG is mourning the sad loss of senior partner, Diplom-Kaufmann Christian Heinrich Sandler who passed away just a few weeks before his 80th birthday.

During his academic studies in Nuremberg, Germany he worked in the wadding company of his late father. In 1952 after completing his studies, he started work in his father’s company and in 1953 became proxy holder and later in 1957 associate and business manager. He built up the company, with capable managers and employees ensuring continuing success through into the next generation. His management skills have resulted in Sandler becoming one of the leading nonwoven producers in Europe.

“Christian Heinrich Sandler was a realistic pragmatist with a distinctive sense of justice. He very early identified opportunities and the risks,” said a company statement. “We have lost an exceptional employer whose competence, vision, persistence and willpower have been responsible for the success of our company as well as for the well-being of his family. “
