Schmitt retires from board of Christ Water Technology

Only a week after the announcement of a takeover of Austrian water treatment specialist Christ Water Technology AG, the company announced on 1 October 2009 that Serge Schmitt has retired from the executive board as of September 2009.

This follows the expiry of his one year-contract as Chief Technology Officer and what Christ describes as the successful completion of the company restructuring.

Schmitt has been at Christ for more than 30 years and will continue to work for the company as a technical consultant to the executive board. He is also remaining president of several Christ Group companies in the Ultrapure Water Division.
