In memory of P+S Technik founder Alfred Piffl
The GTC was very saddened to hear of the passing of Alfred Piffl, founder of GTC sponsor P+S Technik. Alfred sadly and unexpectedly passed away on Sunday 6 January 2019.
As company founder and managing director of P+S Technik, Alfred energetically and courageously navigated the company for over 25 years through the ups and downs with his positive vision and charisma. Ultimately, P+S Technik was Alfred Piffl’s lifetime achievement.
Although Alfred stepped down from his position as managing director in 2017, he remained active within the company and was a key member of the development team behind P+S Technik’s latest series of lenses.
In his spare time, Alfred enjoyed hiking and skiing in the Alps with his wife and friends. He remained active and in good health until his untimely passing.
The tribute on the P+S Technik website reads:
We will sorely miss Alfred as director, colleague and mentor. But, more than this, as the friend he was to so many.
As a company, we are eternally grateful for the confidence Alfred had in all of us and we will forever remember the great times we were able to spend with him.
The GTC would like to extend heartfelt condolences to Alfred's family and all in the company as they come to terms with this very sad loss.
