The highlight of the anniversary year

October 7, 2016

On October 6, 2016, Berghof celebrated its 50th company anniversary in Reutlingen City Hall. In the company of 250 invited guests, the occasion was an event to remember: a day of inspiring discussions, exciting encounters and interesting insights.

The program started in the afternoon, when the guests were able to gain an impression of the company’s diversity. Under the motto “Berghof – Your Innovation Hub”, the eight business units presented their activities in an interactive exhibition. There was plenty to discover – from force testing in the field of Testing, to simulation of the BLU control technology at a model container-handling station and iced-over controls. In the Speakers’ Corner, Berghof and it's partners offered a glance at ongoing cooperation projects and interpretations of the internal and external innovation hub.

The jubilee celebrations culminated with a festive official ceremony in the evening. In fascinating speeches, the Zundel brothers presented the company’s complex history. Keynote speaker Dr. Dais offered an outlook on the entrepreneurial challenges in a digital future. Over drinks at the bar, many of the guests took the opportunity to reflect on the various impressions of the day.
