Company anniversary 90 years of GEHR

6th GEHR Symposium and employee party as a birthday party

As part of an expert symposium and a staff party, we celebrated the 90th GEHR company anniversary. On our factory premises in Mannheim, around 200 guests from 5 continents discussed important industry-specific topics as well as current economic and political issues with top-class speakers.After former Chancellor Helmut Kohl and Hans Dietrich Genscher had been invited as speakers in previous years, this year Jean-Claude Juncker, former President of the European Commission, and Dr. Erwoan Pezron from Arkema and Alexandre Dangis from the European Plastics Converters/ EUPC association were speakers at the event.

One day later, the employee party was on the agenda, to which all employees, their families, friends and neighbors were invited. Many visitors took the opportunity to have employees show them the products in numerous guided tours and to see how, for example, writing instrument tubes are made or extruded. By means of running extruders the plastic processing and their applications were explained to our guests in a simple and easy understandable way.
Of course, it was particularly exciting for the children to see where mum and dad work. Other attractions included a bouncy castle, goal wall shooting and the Paletti youth circus. Here young and old had the opportunity to learn juggling or magic. The atmosphere among the more than 850 visitors was exuberant and happy, and the catering staff had their hands full all day.
