In this forthright and candid conversation Martin covers the history of SchuF from its original foundation in 1911.
We learn about key developments in the firm’s early years, the 1920s, 30s and 40s. And we hear how Martin’s role in the firm started and progressed – including an infamous claim to fame.
Martin offers unique insights into a particular and formative fork in the road; SchuF’s expansion from Germany into Western and Eastern Europe, Korea, Taiwan, the USA, Ireland and India, and the acquisition of Fetterolf.
Martin also discusses his ambitions for the long term future of SchuF – and we learn about what he loves doing when he’s not working.
