Former Nixdorf man seeks colleagues

Willi Benteler, a former employee of Nixdorf Bray and now living in Paderborn, Germany would like to reconnect with friends who were employed at Nixdorf , Bray during the 1980s.

Willi was visiting his neighbouring town Bad Lippspringe in June when he had a chance encounter with a delegation of visitors from Newbridge, County Kildare.

The Newbridge visitors were celebrating the 20th anniversary of their town twinning with Bad Lippspringe.

During the conversation it emerged that Willi had spent many years working at the Nixdorf plant in Bray, which he described as among the happiest years of his life.

He fondly recalled friendships with the late Klaus Fellbaum, Breda O' Brien and Eddie Leigh amongst others.

Willi would love to make contact with some of his old Nixdorf friends.
