First we would like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to our long standing Sales Director, Mr Volker Marx, who is sadly leaving us as of 28.02.2019. Since he joined the company in 2000, Volker has been an integral part of the IPI team and has been at the forefront of building the company we are today. Unfortunately he has been beset with ill health over the past two years and has therefore made the difficult decision to take early retirement. Volker’s expertise and experience has helped train a passionate and knowledgeable team to take over his responsibilities and grow the business further. Please join us in wishing Volker a fulfilling and content retirement.
