Incredible interest at the first STIWA Open Days last weekend: More than 4,500 visitors came to the production site in Gampern to learn about the latest high-tech machines and innovations from STIWA.
STIWA Holding GmbH Managing Director Peter Sticht, STIWA Automation Managing Director Michael Fuchshuber and STIWA Advanced Products Managing Director Josef Brandmayr were impressed by the enormous interest shown by such a large number of visitors. "We would like to express our sincere thanks to the numerous visitors: the fact that they all accepted our invitation to take a close look at STIWA high-tech is a special honor for us and proof that STIWA, as a family-owned company, is strongly rooted in the entire region," said the three managing directors in unison. Many employees also took the opportunity to show their families, friends and acquaintances their workplace at close quarters during a tour of the entire production plant. In addition, it was the ideal opportunity for the numerous visitors to obtain comprehensive information about the diverse jobs of the future at STIWA.
50 years of success story
A special highlight was the permanent exhibition "50 Years of STIWA Success Story", which was set up for this event: Here, visitors were able to learn about the past five successful decades of the company and examine numerous machines and many exhibits from the early days of the company's history. Company founder Walter Sticht played a leading role in the organization and, together with his wife Herta, personally guided the numerous visitors through the exhibition with one or two anecdotes.
Consistent course for the future
"The Open Days were an ideal opportunity for us to present the STIWA Group with its technological diversity to a large audience. And to show that with our approach "think globally, act locally" we have the right answer in the currently very challenging times. Especially the recent past - keyword Ukraine war, interrupted supply chains, massively increased raw material and energy prices - has shown that globalization has to be rethought. It is becoming increasingly important again to produce "in the markets for the markets," according to Brandmayr and Fuchshuber. With new, innovative technologies, not only can significant cost savings be achieved, but with its automation and production excellence as well as regional orientation, STIWA also has the right answers for the future. The company will continue to follow this path consistently in the future.
