The Heuchelheim-based computer manufacturer "tci Gesellschaft für technische Informatik GmbH", better known as tci, is handed over - to two long-time employees.
Jens Becker, himself from Heuchelheim, 38 years old and a graduate engineer, has been with the company for 16 years. In the future, he will be responsible for product development and marketing, among other things. Even as a student, he worked at tci; for the last ten years, he has been involved in product management.
The second shareholder is Metin Alpsoy. The 44-year-old from Giessen is an industrial foreman and has been with the company for 23 years. He started in engineering, trained as an industrial foreman in electrical engineering and has been production manager for ten years. His responsibilities now include engineering and sales.
Michael Böck founded tci 31 years ago and is now handing over a flourishing company with 55 employees that is highly regarded by customers and suppliers as part of his succession plan: "We have already inducted some customers. And all of them were enthusiastic about this management buy-out solution."
The new owners focus on consistency "We are continuing our caring-strategy: We are and will remain a project house that manufactures individually tailored products for its customers. At the same time, growth is planned - organically and with a sense of proportion, as you are used to from tci," says Jens Becker. Metin Alpsoy puts it this way: "Quality, consistency, trust - that's what it's all about for us. We see our customers as partners and, as in the past, we want to have an open relationship, an intensive exchange about all the possibilities.
For the employees it doesn’t change much. They will all keep their jobs and new employees will join them little by little.
Michael Böck will continue to support the two new owners in an advisory capacity for some time and will gradually retire. "I am happy" he says "to hand over my life's work to Mr. Becker and Mr. Alpsoy. For many years, I have known both of them as trustworthy, responsible people who care as much about tci and, above all, its employees as I do."
