Let's just take this slogan to start with.
Looking back from retirement, my active time was predominantly characterized by the fact that I worked as conscientiously as possible, and in return the companies gave me a certain freedom of action.
Apart from this intermezzo, after a short orientation phase, there are precisely two products in which I was involved throughout my entire professional life.
On the one hand, this was, in the broadest sense, the subject area "packaging" and on the other hand "customer support in multi-storey shopping centers" .

That, which resulted despite the handicap mentioned, is represented in the following pages, and if necessary with a few words commented.
