Once again the Burgmaier Group invited its employees and their families as a thank you for the very good performance of the past year to the summer party on July 7, 2018. As in the past, the festival took place on the sports field in Allmendingen.
In bright sunshine, around 420 guests were welcomed. Colleagues from the factories in France and Slovakia also appeared numerous.
The summer party was officially opened by the welcome of Mr. Karl-Hugo Schick, Managing Partner of the Burgmaier Group. At the same time, Mr. Schick thanked all employees and their families for their presence and the valuable dedication they provide to Burgmaier.
Subsequently, Mr. Clifford Howald, Commercial Director, took over the annual raffle of special bonuses for submitted suggestions for improvement from the workforce. To Burgmaier it is important to incorporate and implement employees’ ideas for the successful further development of the group of companies. Every contributor makes a valuable contribution to the future. Each employee with a proposal for improvement submitted and accepted, receives in addition to a monetary bonus, the opportunity to receive further recognition in the form of a non-cash consideration. In addition to several small prizes, the main prize was a travel voucher in the amount of 500 €. Mr. Levent Helal, an employee at the Laupheim plant, was the lucky one to receive this grand prize.
On the occasion of the Football World Cup in Russia, the motto “Football” was chosen for this year’s summer festival. So an eleven-meter tournament was played. Of the five teams who registered in advance, the team “Azubis” won the prize for a bowling visit in Neu-Ulm. Second place went to the team “Glasbier Rangers”, who are allowed to enjoy a team meal in the sports restaurant in Allmendingen. Third place was taken by the “1.FC BHL”, who can occasionally sweeten the summer with large portions of ice cream.
As in previous years, the physical well-being was plentiful. In addition to pizza and crepes was also offered ice cream, coffee and cake again. In addition, the food truck “Flotte Lotte” provided the hungry mouths with Swabian specialties, such as a “Swabian doner kebab”, a “Swabian hot dog” or fries. For the vegetarians a “Pulled Jackfruit” was kept ready. To cool off in summer temperatures were again plenty of drinks available.
“It makes me happy every year, when the feast is so numerous and everyone has fun. The festival was again a huge success, “says managing director Karl-Hugo Schick.
