This is unfortunately sad news.
Yesterday night, Paul Rausnitz, the man who has saved the Meopta company from bankruptcy after the velvet revolution, and brought it to what it is today - a prospering company with more than 2300 employees and producing great quality instruments, has died in his sleep at the age of 90.
Without him, the Meopta brand would probably no longer exist, or mean a lot less than it does today.
My condolences to his family and business partners.
Mr. Rausnitz, thank you for everything you've done for Meopta, and may you rest in peace.
