Peter Lisec Passes Away

August 20, 2009


Peter Lisec, founder and owner of the global glass processing equipment supplier that bears his name, died August 17, 2009, at the age of 73. In a 48-year career, he built Peter Lisec GmbH from a one-man operation to an international group with more than 2,000 employees and more than 50 foreign branches.

Lisec continued to serve as chairman of the Austria-based company up to his very last day. Under his leadership and with the entrepreneurial spirit of an excellent technician, he led the company's efforts to develop a broad array of glass cutting and IG processing equipment "with innovations later defined as state-of-the-art in the world of flat glass," company officials state.
