We say good-bye to Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Knut Großmann

Founding father of ITI GmbH deceased on January 16, 2016

He was special.
Everybody wants to be something special. He was. A visionary. A pioneer. Bold and full of energy. Thanks to his initiative, we founded our company, ITI GmbH, on September 8, 1990. It has been our child. We have taken care of it, looked after it and seen in thrive. With all our hearts, enthusiasm and patience.

He was naive.
He was convinced that anything you do must be good as long as it is done properly with passion and commitment. And that everything good will pique people’s interest eventually. United at heart, we have pursued a common idea. We were striving for a close relationship with our customers – and found it with thousands of engineers all over the world.

He was old-fashioned.
A family man who believed that the most important values in life are handed down to the children within the family. Friendship, trust, sincerity, tolerance, open-mindedness, helpfulness and reliability – these values, his values, have left their marks on our daily routine throughout the entire ITI family. It is done. With his legacy, we are left with something great and with many warm memories of a committed founding father and a passionate family father alike. Thank you, Knut!


With deepest sympathy on behalf of the entire team
