English translation:?? owner name addition/supplement ??
Explanation:
http://www.suedwestfalen.com/hr/hraltena2.htm -

"Karl Solzbacher, Werdohl-Kleinhammer: Die Firma ist geändert in Karl Solzbacher, Inhaber Dietmar Solzbacher. Handelsgeschäft und Firma sind mit dem Recht der Firmenfortführung auf Karl Dietmar Solzbacher (Werdohl) übertragen. Die Prokura Dietmar Solzbacher ist erloschen. Die bisherige Firma wird mit Inhaberzusatz fortgeführt."

In this quotation "Firma" sometimes means "Firmierung" = business name and sometimes the business itself and sometimes both. In your text it meant both name and business. The phrase "Inhaber Dietmar Solzbacher" is the Inhaberzusatz which means the name of the owner becomes an additional or replacement part of the business name. The reason for this practice is so that the public will know if the name of the owner of the business is not the same as the name of the business. That is why the Prokura above has been cancelled. Dietmar is no longer Prokurist in daddy's business, he is the owner but wants to continue to use daddy's name.

As this is not a standard Anglo-American form, the translation may have to be coined. None of my dictionaries show the term. The fact that there is nothing about this in the dictionaries and only 2 hits in the Internet puzzles me. The practice is compulsory, I even have to use it in my own business name. As I cannot find an "official" translation, I can only offer a suggestion: "owner name addition/supplement". - HTH - Dan

Explanation:
This is merely a suggestion; Dan's done a wonderful job of explaining what this term is/means.

I was thinking along the lines of company names that then list a proprietor which one sometimes sees in US businesses.
Clean Windows, Sunny B.M. Sunshine, proprietor. Maybe a phrase similar to this will fit into your context.
