Erich Ludwig

Two things have shaped Erich Ludwig’s career: his work for a large corporation and a family history that brought him in close contact with the lighting industry early on. “There are things you can’t study at a university, you have to have them in your blood,” he says. Erich Ludwig was born in Mering near Augsburg in 1956. His father and uncle founded a factory there in 1949: Gebrüder Ludwig GmbH, Fabrik für technische Beleuchtung (Ludwig Bros. Ltd., Manufactory for Technical Illumination). As a young boy, Erich Ludwig watched the company grow. After school, he initially completed business management training at Siemens in Munich before joining the family business in 1977. It was there that he took on responsibility for technical developments in production and oversaw extension work. His technical background allowed him to drive automation at the factory. Erich Ludwig has also spearheaded numerous innovations and established a superb network in the lighting industry.
