Only eight weeks after the passing of their long-term CEO Werner Doppstadt, the employees of the Germany-based Doppstadt Group are mourning the loss of his wife, company co-founder Hedwig Doppstadt, who has died aged 83.

Together with her husband and his brother, Hedwig Doppstadt founded the family enterprise in 1965, and has been described as a driving force behind its success.
