With great dismay and deep sadness we say goodbye to our CEO and father of today's Selfix, Kurt Fischer. He died at the age of 73 after a serious illness. With the departure of Kurt Fischer, we lose the pioneer and founding father of Selfix in its current form. Kurt Fischer converted Selfix from a small trading company with adhesive tapes to a high-performance label convertor. His entrepreneurial foresight and commitment shaped Selfix.
