2020-01-20 | The lifetime achievement award goes to Franz Neuhofer senior
As part of this year's Domotex trade fair in Hanover (10-13/1/2020), Franz Neuhofer senior., the retired head of the family-owned company FN Neuhofer, was awarded the "Parquet Star 2020 for his life's work".
The successful family business, based in the Austrian town of Zell am Moos, celebrates its 370th anniversary this year, and Franz Neuhofer senior (9th generation) his 80th birthday.
These wonderful events were topped off right at the beginning of the year with the lifetime achievement award, presented by Parkett Magazine. During a festive event at the Domotex 2020 in Hanover, Franz Neuhofer senior was presented with the "Parquet Star 2020 for his life's work", with Peter Hamberger, the honorary recipient of the prize from 2016, giving an emotional laudation.
"This prize is a great honour for me and I am delighted to receive it. I'd like to express my thanks to Parkett Magazine for the award, and especially Peter Hamberger, with whom I've been doing business for many decades", Franz Neuhofer senior said. And furthermore:
"When I look back on "370 years of Neuhofer", I'm proud and also a bit humble. Only a few family-run businesses can look back on such a long history. I'm very pleased that our children have found their way both in their personal and professional lives. Our grandchildren are also doing wonderfully well - that gives me high hopes for the future".
So a good start to a new year, in which our family company - true to our slogan "WE. KNOW. WOW!" - hits the ground running, and will again be able to earn this "Wow!" of enthusiasm from our partners and customers.
