In 1996, RM Components GmbH was founded by Reinhard Meyer and his wife Gudrun. Before that, Reinhard Meyer had been working directly for Taiyo Yuden Europe for almost 10 years, responsible for their European distribution activities. In the years that followed, RM Components became Taiyo Yuden's largest sales partner in Europe. In 2008, Germany-wide representation of Taiwanese manufacturer HolyStone followed. These closely knit business relationships have lasted to the present day and have continued to be firmly developed.
Much to our regret, Reinhard Meyer passed away unexpectedly in November 2018. His death came at a time when Gudrun and Reinhard Meyer had already decided to hand over the company to the successor and to take their well-deserved retirement. Sometimes death announces itself with a serious illness, while sometimes, as with Reinhard Meyer, it simply comes as a surprise — and much too early (quickly). Someone who, together with Gudrun Meyer, had created the company RM Components with a lot of dedication and commitment, who belonged firmly in our lives, who was deeply rooted in Schwabach, was suddenly gone. The memories and the beautiful moments will remain, even if his death has left a deep wound, especially with Gudrun Meyer. The two of them were very close to each other.
It is very painful to lose such a good person. However, it is also a comfort to all of us to know that he was appreciated by so many who will never forget him. The RM Components team would like to thank him and his wife Gudrun for establishing the company. We will continue to keep your life’s work alive.
Sometimes I look up,
smile and think:
I know you were here. Thank you!
