In Memoriam: Leo van Gansewinkel

It was with sadness that we learned of the death of Leo van Gansewinkel, shareholder and father of the founder of our organization. He was 80 years old and despite his health problems in recent months, his death was still unexpected.

We remember Leo as a visionary with an inspired and enterprising character. After the sale of the Van Gansewinkel Group in 2007, he followed with great interest the developments of all the companies associated with the family office, including Ortessa and its subsidiaries. His interest in the world of waste and raw materials has always been and will always be great.

On behalf of the management and all employees, we wish the family and surviving relatives a great deal of strength.

If you would like to show your support to the family, you can do so at or by sending a card to Postbus 8800, 5605 LV in Eindhoven.
