Progroup – 30th anniversary and changing of the generations

After 30 years at the helm of the company, at the turn of 2022/2023 Progroup founder and CEO, Jürgen Heindl, will be handing over the role of CEO to his son Maximilian Heindl, previously his deputy.

Jürgen Heindl will be moving to the Supervisory Board and in the future will run JH Holding GmbH. His successor’s clear aim is to continue to lead the family company with vision and expand it to secure its future.

Vinzenz Heindl will also be bringing his skills to the industry in the future. As the managing director of the Professionals Academy, the trained psychologist offers a platform for engaging on issues specific to the industry and family-run companies. The Professionals Academy is also part of JH Holding GmbH.

Progroup celebrated this significant milestone with a ceremonial event in Leipzig on 5 November. It was almost 30 years to the day since the company’s first corrugated sheetfeeder plant started operating in Offenbach an der Queich.
