Napier was saddened to receive the news that Alfred Goldbacher has unexpectedly passed away on 26th September 2018. As part of the editorial department at Elektronik since 1991, Alfred was a key member of the team, handling responsibilities such as distribution, passive components, electromechanics, printed circuit board design, and electronics production.

Alfred was widely known across the industry and will be deeply missed. After moving from Siemens to Electroink in 1991, Alfred went on to work part time as editor and train as a naturopath, passing on his experience to the next generation of naturopaths.

Known for his positive charisma and friendly nature, Alfred’s sudden passing will leave a large gap in the industry. Our thoughts are with Alfred’s friends and family.
