Reliance Regretfully Announces the Loss of its Founder

Dec 19, 2016 |

Reliance is sad to announce that its founder, Mr Max Selka, passed away last week at the age of 92. An integral part of the business throughout his life, he will be greatly missed.

When he purchased the business back in 1955 Mr Selka already had a vision of the company he wanted to run. He changed the focus of Reliance to manufacture engineered gears, and he and his wife Jenny have worked tirelessly ever since to turn Reliance into the world class organisation it is today.

Mr Selka always remained true to the vision he had 61 years ago, ensuring that at the heart of the business remained the core values important to him – quality, the welfare of his employees and the provision of interesting, challenging work.

Andrew Wright, Reliance’s Managing Director, comments “Reliance is deeply saddened at the loss of Mr Selka. He will be greatly missed. He was a very special character, which is reflected in the company, and we will always be grateful to him for the business he has created. The thoughts of everyone at Reliance are with Jenny and the family at this difficult time.”
