Two years after Bystronic glass in Bützberg, Switzerland celebrated its 50 year anniversary, the Neuhausen-Hamburg division in Baden Württemberg, Germany followed suit. This location has been developing, manufacturing and shipping machines and insulating glass production units all over the world since 1966. Employees, their families as well as former employees all celebrated this major company anniversary together with the management board at a Family Day which took place in July 2016.
“For 50 years, our Bystronic glass location in Neuhausen-Hamberg has been setting trends in modern insulating glass production and this anniversary also enables us to offer our thanks to our employees. Thanks to their personal dedication and cooperation, they have played a significant role in the development of the location as well as in the development of Bystronic glass”, says Dr. Burghard Schneider, CEO of the Bystronic glass Group, which is part of the Swiss CONZZETA AG Company. Michael Rudloff, Managing Director at Bystronic Lenhardt GmbH in Neuhausen-Hamberg goes on to say: “We wanted to celebrate this together with colleagues today. It was a wonderful celebration and we would like to thank everybody who assisted in the organisation, those who provided support as well as everyone who attended the celebration. We were able to spend a few lovely hours together with our colleagues and their families and were particularly delighted to see numerous former employees once again, including those who helped shape the company right at the very start.”
After the official welcoming speeches by the Management Board and Johannes Körner, Chairman of the Works Council, were concluded a more colourful part of the day commenced. One highlight was the anniversary film, which provided an entertaining review of the 50-year company history. The guests of honour included company founder, Karl Lenhardt and Mayor of the Neuhausen District, Oliver Korz. The employees and their families enjoyed delicious food and cold drinks throughout the sunny day. Guests, both young and old, were able to enjoy the bull rides, bouncy castle and the children’s programme. All guests could take a peek behind the scenes during several guided tours around the factory where they learned how a modern insulating glass line is manufactured. The final tour highlight included an exhibition of a B’JUMBO insulating glass line which, in the following week, was delivered to a customer in Thailand. The guests were particularly impressed by the size of the insulating glass line upon which insulating glass units measuring up to 3.21 x 6.00 m in size can be produced.
