FOUNDERS

Michael Zehe

For more than 24 years we have been dedicating our passion to the production of HIGHTEC lubricants MADE IN GERMANY. Developed at our own laboratories, our products combine top quality with maximum performance. Drawing on our vast experience and sound technical knowhow, we are in a position to answer to your specific needs and provide optimum customer support. Our forward-looking procurement and sales organizations guarantee a comprehensive product portfolio. We are well equipped for the major challenges that we face. E-mobility, stagnating sales figures worldwide for lubricants, the increasingly crazy regulations on the part of EU and authorities – up to now none of these was able to affect us adversely. ROWE continues to grow in 2018. The ROWE brand is waiting in the starting blocks so to speak in order to conquer a substantial share of the market in the next few years on important foreign markets such as Russia, China and the USA, to name just a few. We still have enough potential, to achieve a sustained improvement and to increase our competitiveness. We are optimistic that we will succeed in doing so.

Dr. Alexandra Kohlmann

Many medium-sized companies in Germany currently face the challenge of finding a suitable successor for the continuation of their company. Various succession solutions can be taken into consideration these days, as a successor is not always available within the family. ROWE also looked at the future topic of company successions: The succession in the family-run company began roughly three years ago when Dr. Kohlmann joined the company. She has now been Managing Director of the company together with her father and manages and steers the fate of the business since May 2018. In order to be able to exist with a growing and successful company on the market, sustainably planning and strategic corporate management is one of the most important tasks, which is now split in the hands of both managing directors. In retrospect, ROWE experienced 23 years full of passion, dynamism, versatility and innovation! The guidelines have always continued to develop over two decades and have become our strengths, to which we also attach importance in the future
