1969 – The Next Generation

At the end of the 60s, leadership of the family-owned enterprise is handed over to the next generation: Wolfgang Depenbrock and Dr Hannes Frank take over the reins of the business. The photo was taken during a company outing to the Hermannsdenkmal in 1969 – on its 50th anniversary the enterprise had 85 employees. The Board of Directors sets up the “Neugeborenenhilfe” (newborn aid initiative) and the “Jowat Unterstützungsverein” (Jowat support association). To this day, the objective has been to provide financial support to employees in need by no fault of their own.
