Gerresheimer Bünde honors its long-serving members of staff

Bünde, December 11, 2017. At Gerresheimer’s Bünde site, it is tradition for long-serving members of staff to be honored each year. This year, the celebration took place on November 24 at the Moor Ranch by lake Hücker Moor. Over 30 employees who have been at the company for ten and 25 years celebrated this year. The highlight, however, was Jörg Fröhlich’s 40 years of loyal cooperation.

 “So much has changed in production that there is just no comparison between then and now,” says Jörg Fröhlich. A plastics engineer by training, he worked for a total of 30 years in plastics production followed by ten years in glass production. “When the machines in our sister plant were relocated to Poland, I spent half a year there supporting the employees on site,” explains Jörg Fröhlich. “All the years that I was with Gerresheimer, I also enjoyed working there.”

"I initially started at Gerresheimer Bünde on a temporary contract,” says Sabine Nikolosi who most enjoys working the night shift and is celebrating her tenth anniversary at the company. She came from Poland and had difficulties with German at first. “But my colleagues helped me out a lot. Now I no longer have any issues,” she explains.

Most of those who are celebrating their anniversary work in syringe production and have supported all manner of different changes through the years. They got used to working with newly-developed technologies. They took part in measures to modernize and develop halls and rooms. They improved product quality to meet the growing demands of Gerresheimer customers. And time and again they trained new colleagues who strengthened the teams at the plant. All these challenges provided plenty of variety. “There really is never a dull moment with us,” the celebrating staff members all agreed at their relaxed get-together.
