Heinz-TroxGERMANY: Ventilation company Trox is mourning the death of Heinz Trox, its principal shareholder, honorary chairman and former managing director. 

Born in 1934, the son of the company’s founder, he joined Trox GmbH in 1959.

During his career he grew Trox to its current standing: a global leader in the field of ventilation and air conditioning, with more than 3700 employees and revenues of around €500m.

In recognition of his lifetime achievements as an entrepreneur, Heinz Trox was awarded the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany last year.
