Obituary Hanspeter Söllner-Tripp

In deep mourning and with great respect for his achievements in life, we bid farewell to our long-time managing director

Hanspeter Söllner-Tripp

who passed away on May 16th, 2021 at the age of 68 after a grave illness.

As managing director and link of the Tripp family, Mr. Söllner-Tripp significantly advanced the development of the etol company group in Oppenau and Oberkirch for more than three decades and decisively shaped it with his signature. He was a passionate entrepreneur, strategist, initiator and visionary. His management style was characterized by straightforwardness, a high level of expertise and a distinctive will to take decisions. His constant listening to the concerns of his employees and his good empathy made him a particularly personable supervisor. He was a great leader and philanthropist at the same time. He lived his profession with great passion and a great sense of responsibility. Because of this, Mr. Söllner-Tripp was always held in high regard and respect by his colleagues, employees and business partners.
With Hanspeter Söllner-Tripp, we have lost a successful entrepreneur and a remarkable person whose approachable and sympathetic manner will always be remembered.

We will keep Hanspeter Söllner-Tripp in honored memory.

Our sincere condolences go to his family.

Polyurethanverarbeitung, technische Formteile - neue Produktionshalle - etol Eberhard Tripp GmbH

Our polyurethane production has taken on new forms

The successful expansion of the main plant in Oppenau has moved on to the next level – intensive production with new production machines has recently been started.

As standard, products with a clamping surface up to 2100 mm (W) x 1300 mm (D) and a tool weight up to 3,000 kg can be manufactured. Flexible clamping systems also allow the use of third-party tools.

Individual solutions are possible for deviating dimensions – please contact us and let us advise you.

Using the latest plant technology, the technical parts made of compact foam can already be coloured during the manufacturing process. Depending on the requirements of the moulded part, this process step can eliminate the necessity of repainting.

Freely programmable pressure and swivel angles ensure the best possible output with reliable quality. The process documentation ensures reproducibility and repeatability, which can be documented and traced.

The new machinery also offers our employees optimal conditions and an ergonomic workplace design to maintain production and quality at the highest level on a long-term basis.

etol donates disinfectant to Offenburg and Freiburg Hospital

Disinfectants are rare in many places in times of the corona crisis. Therefore, the etol group donated 672 half-litre bottles of hand disinfectant to the University Hospital in Freiburg on 20th April 2020. The same amount had already been donated to the Offenburg Hospital one week before.

The hand disinfectant was produced in the Oberkirch plant at the beginning of April – the local facilities are normally used for the production of oral care products, the plant was quickly restructured to include disinfectants.
