25 years of ARBURG Belgium
Silver anniversary celebrated in style
The ARBURG subsidiary in Belgium celebrated its 25th anniversary on 22 June 2017 in the presence of around 50 guests. Managing Partner Renate Keinath presented the anniversary sculpture to subsidiary manager, Simon Bemong.
Renate Keinath thanked both staff and customers
In her address, Renate Keinath emphasised: "The fact that we are able to celebrate this silver anniversary here today is thanks to our committed ARBURG team and also to our customers. Without you we would not be what we are today - a market leader and recognised number one in the area of customer service in Belgium." Speaking on behalf of the entire ARBURG organisation, she thanked staff for their commitment and customers for their trust in ARBURG and successful cooperation in the past decades. "This confirms that we chose the right path 25 years ago and that our continuous investments in the Belgian market have paid dividends."
First class support and service for customers
Managing Director Sales Gerhard Böhm emphasised the long-standing and first-class customer support in his speech and looked back over the history of the subsidiary. ARBURG activities in Belgium began in the early 1960s and culminated in the founding of a subsidiary in Holsbeek in 1992. Subsidiary manager Simon Bemong, who moved to ARBURG from the former trading partner, proved himself an expert at the helm from the outset, familiar both with ARBURG technology and the company's customers.
Gerhard Böhm also explained the new products and the new "Wir sind da." ARBURG brand promise. This expresses the fact that we are always present wherever the customer may be in geographical, technological, mental or physical terms. "We can be relied upon, just like a trusted family member. And precisely that has been proved by Simon Bemong and his team here in Belgium on a daily basis over the last 25 years!" said the Managing Director Sales. After this, Simon Bemong presented the GOLDEN ELECTRIC all-electric machine series to the customers. The festive anniversary event was rounded off by musical performances and a multi-course dinner. This successful 25th anniversary will be followed by similar 25-year events at the subsidiaries in China, Malaysia and Poland.
