The cherished tradition of Strama-MPS Maschinenbau GmbH & Co. KG to celebrate with the jubilarians in December had to be interrupted for two and a half years due to the Corona pandemic. The managing directors Herbert Wittl, Helmut Petzko and Martin Ebner were all the more pleased to be able to make up for this on Thursday, June 2, 2022 in the Hotel ASAM to thank the jubilarians for their many years of service to the company and their commitment. To be on the safe side, this year's celebration was scheduled for early summer. A very special welcome was extended to former plant manager Werner Schmidbauer, who has been enjoying his well-deserved retirement for around ten years now and traditionally performed the honors as he does every year.
A total of 82 employees were honored for the years 2020 and 2021, 67 of them with 10 years of service, 12 with 25 years and 3 with 40 years. 20 employees were also given a well-deserved retirement.
If we add up the years of service of the employees celebrating anniversaries in 2020 and 2021, we can look back on a total of 1,090 years together. This is only possible with mutual appreciation and is no longer a matter of course in today's fast-paced world. Without the experience of the long-standing employees, the success story of Strama-MPS could not have been written. Managing Director Herbert Wittl expressed this in the form of a quote from Henry Ford during his acceptance speech: "Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, working together is success."
The celebration ended with delicious food and funny anecdotes from the past years.
