Gerresheimer pays tribute to employees celebrating jubilees

Düsseldorf, December 04, 2013 – 11,000 people work at the 47 Gerresheimer sites around the world. 115 loyal employees who have been with the company for 10 years and in some cases much longer celebrated their jubilees this year at the German sites. Herbert Muntanjohl tops the list with 50 years of service at Gerresheimer Medical Plastic Systems and the predecessor company.

“We’re delighted that so many of our employees have been with us for so many years, and it shows how satisfied they are with us as their employer,“ said Thomas Perlitz, Director HR. It is also confirmation of the success of the company’s HR policy at its sites throughout Germany. Gerresheimer has a total of 3,250 employees in Bünde, Düsseldorf, Essen, Lohr, Pfreimd, Meiningen, Tettau, Wackersdorf and Wertheim. At its other sites around the world, the employees in the Gerresheimer workforce have an average of eleven years of service, which is pretty impressive. The average age of all 11,000 employees is around 40.

There are 12 employees among the 115 people celebrating their jubilees, the majority of whom have been with the company for more than 20 years, who have been working at Gerresheimer for 40 years. The longest serving employee this year is Herbert Muntanjohl, who joined the company 50 years ago when he started out as an apprentice. In eight months’ time, the lathe operator will be taking well-earned retirement.
