Since the German interest group Interessengemeinschaft Leichtbau e.V. (igeL) was founded 12 years ago, Dr Hannes Frank has been actively promoting the lightweight construction concept for the general public. Now he has passed that baton on to Klaus Kullmann. Mr Kullmann has committed to continuing the work of his predecessor in furthering the successful development of igeL and thereby of lightweight construction.
In recognition of his extraordinary achievements for the igeL interest group, Dr Frank has been appointed the first honorary member of igeL e.V. in an unanimous decision during the digital general meeting on 17 November 2020. Klaus Kullmann has been elected deputy chair of the board at the same meeting.
