A lot was destroyed in World War II, but with the help from British friends R3 managed to rebuild the company after the war. In 1948 Wilhelm Rump KG signed an important agency agreement with Hamworthy from Poole, England, (now “Wärtsilä Water Systems”) which has constantly been renewed and can thus be considered one of the oldest agency agreements in the industry still in effect.
In 1968, Wilhelm Rump celebrated the company’s 100 th anniversary and kept up an active interest in the company even after Dr. Kay Rump (R4) joined the firm and gradually took over the management responsibility.
In 2005 R4’s son Hubertus Rump (R5) joined the company and grew over the years into the role of the Managing Owner which he actively fills today.
In November 2017 Mr. Robert Körner was given “Prokura” (Power of attorney). Mr. Körner joined the company in 2008, when he began his training as wholesale and foreign trade merchant. After graduating in that field in 2011, Mr. Körner was trusted with several areas of responsibility over the years, and is today heading the company’s financial accounting, customs operations, IT and special operations of all kinds.
