Biographie of the founder
Mr. Edmund Bradatsch was born in Velenic (Gmuend) in Czech Republic on 19th of December 1940. His family came to Bavaria after war and finally to Munich in 1956.
At the Krauss Maffei AG in Munich Mr. Bradatsch completed his apprenticeship as industrial clerk and studied afterwards at the Oskar-von-Miller-Polytechnikum in Munich in the field of general mechanical engineering. Mr. Bradatsch expanded his technical expertise at the institute for construction systematics at the technical university of Munich (Prof. Dr. Rodenacker) where he also worked on industrial orders
Since then Mr. Bradatsch was deeply connected with the company BHS in Weiherhammer for more than 30 years. At BHS he was responsible for development design, experiments and technical sales.
In 1990 Mr. Bradatsch and Paul Engel founded their own sales company. In 1993 the two founders Bradatsch and Engel overtook the company BHS Weiherhammer together with other shareholders and introduced the shares to today’s company BHS Corrugated Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH.
Edmund Bradatsch was head of the sales and technic department of the company BHS Corrugated Maschinen- und Anlagenbau GmbH for more than seven years as managing director and shareholder.
In the year 2003 Edmund Bradatsch withdrew from operative business operations but is still consulting the shareholders of BHS Corrugated today.
The founder would like to thank his own supporters personally who offered him the chance to study general mechanical engineering at the Oskar-von-Miller-Polytechnikum as a young man in Munich.
Therefore the purpose of the private foundation is the support of students – especially students of second-chance education. In addition the science at the universities in Regensburg and Amberg-Weiden should be encouraged.
