Plastics Hall of Fame 2015

Eugen Hehl honoured for life’s work

On 22 March 2015, Eugen Hehl was inducted into the “Plastics Hall of Fame” for his lifetime achievements. Together with his brother Karl Hehl, who passed away in 2010, today’s senior Partner made ARBURG into a global leader in the manufacture of injection moulding machines.

Eighty-six-year-old Eugen Hehl expressed his thanks for the award, which was bestowed to him on the day before the NPE 2015 trade fair in Orlando, USA, by video message: “I feel deeply honoured to be included in the SPI Hall of Fame and I thank you with all my heart. With the invention of the ALLROUNDER and of the freeformer, we have made technological history – a history that we would like to build upon significantly in the future.”
