Obituary for Gisela Friederichs​

Hartmann Spezialkarosserien GmbH is mourning the loss of its founder Gisela Friederichs (née Meyer) who passed away on 11 March 2022 at the age of 86.

Gisela Friederichs founded the "Heinz and Gisela Friederichs foundation" together with her husband Heinz Friederichs in 1991 to ensure the continuance of the family tradition of more than 150 years in carriage and body construction as well as to save the jobs in our company.

Especially in the start-up phase of the foundation, Gisela Friederichs made great efforts to maintain our traditional company in Frankfurt. We are very grateful to her for the responsibility she took over for our employees at that time and as a member of the board of the foundation until today.

With her warm, open and friendly nature, it was important to Gisela Friederichs to sponsor her fellow human beings with the foundation and thus make a contribution to the future of society and economy. In addition to supporting young artists and contemporary art, her social commitment to people in need as well as her engagement to the vocational education and training of young scientists and technicians were close to her heart.

Her commitment will live on in the "Heinz and Gisela Friederichs foundation" and is also anchored in the company philosophy of Hartmann Spezialkarosserien GmbH, in which social responsibility and future-oriented acting are fundamental values.

We will honour the memory of our dear founder at all times.
