Egon Schumacher celebrates his 80th birthday!

As Managing Director for many years, Egon Schumacher has shaped LUBING and led it to international success. At the end of May, the jubilarian celebrates his 80th birthday – and is still connected to LUBING.

After company founder Ludwig Bening was killed in a car accident in 1968, Egon Schumacher, who was only 27 years old at the time, took over the management and operations of LUBING Maschinenfabrik. In the coming years, he decisively drove forward the focus on technology for animal husbandry, the development of new products and the expansion of production capacities for drinking nipples. The development of the international subsidiaries and foreign representatives also took place under his aegis – initially with a French branch. Since the restructuring of LUBING in 1977, Schumacher has also been a shareholder of the GmbH, as well as managing director and shareholder of BARKU Kunststofftechnik GmbH & Co. KG, which was founded in the same year. After 38 years of successful company management, he handed over the reins to Markus von der Assen in 2006, but has remained with LUBING to this day as Chairman of the Advisory Board.

Today, LUBING is an internationally active company with a workforce of well over 500 employees, a production area of around 20,000 m² in Germany alone and 43 foreign representatives and subsidiaries worldwide. An impressive achievement that was shaped by Egon Schumacher in a very special way – through diligence, strategic skill and last but not least: common sense. With an unconditional will for innovation and quality, he has developed LUBING into a global player in intensive cooperation with employees and partners from the region and international business.

Happy 80th birthday!
