Generational change 1973
In 1972, Svend Kirchheiner called his engineering-trained son Frank Kirchheiner home from Copenhagen, which was meant by Frank to help with the running of the extensive company.
But in 1973, Svend Kirchheiner died unexpectedly and suddenly, and Frank Kirchheiner became the 28-year-old boss of 50 employees.
Frank Kirchheiner initiated a shift in the company's course, and focused on the industry and followed the huge developments that were taking place in the field of industrial engineering.
During Frank's 33 years at Kirchheiner Electrical Engineering, the company evolved from an installation business to being a modern electrical engineering company with primary employment in industrial electricity and automation.
