Felder founder

The Felder Group is mourning the death of its founder and long-time managing director, Johann Felder (1930-2021).

“With his passing, his family as well as the company’s employees are losing an inspiring and striking personality, who turned the Felder Group into the successful family business it is today,” the company said in a statement.

“Johann Felder was known for his positive outlook on life and his progressive worldview. He was greatly respected, in Austria and abroad. His wife Gertraud, his sons Hansjörg and Martin Felder, the company’s current managing directors, his daughter Elisabeth, his grandchildren Daniel, Patrick, Tamara, and Alexander Felder, the third generation working in the family business, as well as the entire Felder Group staff are deeply saddened by Johann Felder’s passing. They are losing not just an altogether fascinating and strong personality, but also a mentor and a dear friend.”
