Dear Sir or Madam,

It is with deep sadness and sadness that we announce that Ralf Möller, founder, shareholder and managing director of the companies Möller-Industrietechnik GmbH and Möller-Metalldichtungen GmbH, was torn out of life completely unexpectedly on 20 December 2019, just 55 years old.

We remember him as an extraordinary personality whose drive and motor, heart and head, mind and soul formed the Möller company into an innovative and competitive medium-sized enterprise. He had a dream and a vision and fought relentlessly for his goals every day. He was also a shining example of how you can achieve everything if you are convinced of it and stick to it 100 percent.

Driven by his irrepressible ambition and will, he developed from a small individual company into today's largest full-range supplier of static flat gaskets in the whole of Europe.

Fairness, honesty as well as discipline, order and cleanliness were essential and constant guarantees for his success. He was angular and edgy, never keeping his opinions to himself. He chose his way mostly stony and walked it without looking left and right and certainly not backwards. Comfort zone was for him not to have a comfort zone.

His competence, experience and willingness to innovate have shaped the cooperation in his companies for decades. He paid attention to his employees and made a significant contribution to value-driven action. His door was always open and he had a solution for every problem. At the anniversary celebration, he emphasised once again how important his employees were for him. Without them he would never have been able to achieve this success. Together we made history and together we lived our dream!

Only one love was even greater and more significant for him - the love for his family - wife Doreen and their common sons Mathias and Lukas. In gratitude for his creativity, perseverance and tireless ambition they keep the companies in their hands and continue to run them in his spirit.

As a family they also say goodbye, grateful for the words of comfort and condolences they have already received. These give hope that they will make it through what will undoubtedly be a difficult transition period and that they will honour his memory.

In deep sorrow
