"The departure of Volker Knuff touches me a lot," explains Andreas Ebert, Managing Director of Aberle GmbH, summing up Knuff's services to the company. "We are all deeply indebted to Volker Knuff. With him, a far-sighted thought leader is leaving the company. It is to be credited to his many years of cooperation, know-how, and commitment that Aberle has successfully established itself on the national and international market as a system integrator and general contractor. We are pleased that he continues to be available to us in an advisory capacity."
