More than 250 invited international guests followed the invitation of the company on the first day of the event to the new production halls in Gerhardshofen. These included international customers, distribution partners, politicians and representatives of the banking industry.
The owner families of the company Sahler/Grebe, the advisory board of the WEILBURGER Group as well as the management of the sister companies were also there for this occasion.
After the official opening of the event, moderator Christiane Imdahl guided the audience from the gallery through a panel discussion about the company’s development and new production plant.
Participants were Günter Korbacher, managing director at WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH; Dr. Jutta Richter, technical director at WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, who was also responsible for the planning and implementation of the new production facility; Arno Dürr, sales director at WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH; and Ralf Hohmann, director and authorized officer at Hemmelrath Technologies GmbH, who was responsible for the technical realization and construction of the new production plant.
“At first, we were not sure whether we should actually organize such an event in our production hall and therefore had a long discussion period in the planning phase with all those involved in the implementation of the event," Korbacher said. "Of course, we now know that the decision was the right one and that we could not have found a more authentic, impressive and memorable location. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all persons and companies involved in the implementation of the event – especially the event agency project c – most sincerely for the highly professional and successful implementation. The extraordinary flexibility and engagement of project c has enabled that the production could be maintained to a large extent during the event. This was important for us due to our very good order situation.”
