50 years with the company
In 1967, on August 1st, Mr. Wilfried Hermes started his apprenticeship as an industrial clerk at the Warmpresswerk. At this point in time, the changeover from the production of the back then produced radiator fittings for heaters to various other forgings, like f.ex. gear wheels, crankshafts and drive pinions, had just begun.
After successful completion of his training, Mr. Hermes passed through the various departments of the administration. Over the years, he experienced how the drop forging has become significantly larger and how, for example in the 1990s, the in-house toolmaking for the production of the dies was added.
Until last he had worked many years in sales and then went into his well-deserved retirement on 31.07.2017. The Management is extremely grateful for the long-standing trust and the excellent work done over all the years. The farewell was duly celebrated.
