Alurays Lighting Technology GmbH Mourns the Death of Walter Ziegler

Last week, Dipl. Kfm. Walter Ziegler, managing director of Alurays lighting technology GmbH and the former manager of Tridonic GmbH & Co KG (Zumtobel Group) unexpectedly passed away. His sudden death leaves the shareholders and employees of the Alurays lighting technology GmbH deeply saddened.

Walter Ziegler, having previously held senior positions in the Zumtobel Group,  joined Alurays lighting technology GmbH in Planegg near Munich in the fall of 2014, first as a consultant, then in the summer of 2015 as a shareholder. The past two years were spent as sole managing director.

Within a few years, through enormous personal dedication, he managed to turn an up-and-coming startup, then still based in Munich-Pasing, into a successful medium-sized company in Planegg near Munich. Born in Schweinfurt, Germany, the business graduate made a decisive contribution to the company’s remarkable and rapid development. This is characterized, above all, by growth in the export business in the Near and Middle East. During this time, licensed companies were founded in Doha (Qatar) and Ahmedabad (India), that operate as successful companies in their own right today. His experience and commitment also helped Alurays lighting technology GmbH to significantly expand the business field of OEM manufacturing for luminaires with a high degree of protection.

Today, Alurays lighting technology GmbH is the German technology leader for intelligent, encapsulated and long-life linear LED systems in facades, based on know-how that has been continuously developed since 2003. 

"Walter Ziegler has left us much too early, only having celebrated his 61st birthday in September. With Walter Ziegler, Alurays lighting technology GmbH loses an extraordinary leader. He left a lasting mark on the company with his calm leadershipqualities, bestowing Alurays lighting technology GmbH with powerful tools for success. We join his family in mourning his passing. The memory of Mr. Walter Ziegler stays with us in good repute."
