'I hope that the Chinese government will not allow a major economic downturn'
Uli Reichert, 66, has spent his entire career building up Wirtgen's business in China since the end of the 1980s. The Wirtgen Group is one of the leading manufacturers of road construction machinery. It generates around €3 billion of revenue. The company manufactures in Germany, Brazil, China and India. In 2017, US agricultural machinery manufacturer John Deere acquired the Wirtgen Group for €4.4 billion. In May, Reichert will step down from the post of China CEO to work as a consultant at the German headquarters for another two years.
