Prestigious award for passionate businessman

Federal Cross of Merit for Dr. Stephan Kufferath

“When a successful businessman chooses not simply to rest on his laurels, but instead is willing to assume responsibility at numerous professional associations and engage in regional community work, he becomes a role model for our society.” It was with these words that Wolfgang Spelthahn, district administrator of the Düren district, presented the Federal Cross of Merit to Dr. Stephan Kufferath, Director at GKD – GEBR. KUFFERATH AG (GKD), on behalf of German Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier. This prestigious award honors Dr. Kufferath’s decades of voluntary commitment to the regional economy and society. The doctor of economics and his brother, Ingo, are the third generation of the Kufferath family to manage the GKD business, which they have been running since 1989. The world’s leading technical weavers specialize in sophisticated system solutions for a wide range of applications in the areas of water, nutrition, health, mobility, as well as environmental protection, and resource conservation.
