After the end of World War II, and following the death of August Dippmann’s wife, the company is taken over by the company founder’s three daughters. Marie Dippmann, Gertrud Rau and Johanna Meissner as well as the Authorized Officers Arthur Reinhold and Kurt Hofmann become managers and continue the operations of Sächsische Walzen-Gravieranstalt as a partnership. When the two German states are founded, it is the only company of this type in the former German Democratic Republic and the whole Eastern bloc.
