A record-breaking number of employees are celebrating their work anniversary at Erwin Junker Maschinenfabrik GmbH this year. The 78 employees have achieved an impressive 1820 combined years of service. They were duly honored during a celebration at the company's inn Gasthaus Stube on October 1, 2021.
"The relationship between employees and owners is much closer and more informal at owner-managed companies than at large corporations," emphasized Managing Director Dr. Karsten Schaumann, whose responsibilities include personnel management, and who conducted the ceremony together with Managing Director Joachim Himmelsbach.
In addition to the many years of loyalty and the strong bond with the company, both managing directors jointly honored the achievements, commitment and the passion which the employees have brought to the company founded in 1962, thereby contributing to its success. The managing directors recalled several highlights from the last 45 years of the company's history during their speech. These included the invention of the QUICKPOINT technology, the acquisition of plants in the Czech Republic and the company's global expansion with the establishment of subsidiaries in the USA, China, India, Brazil, Russia and Turkey. In 2016, Erwin Junker founded the Fabrikant-Erwin-Junker-Stiftung foundation. The year 2022 will see another highlight in the company's history with its 60th anniversary.
