In July, our US location in Grand Rapids celebrated our 75th anniversary together with our CEO Dr. Michael Schwabe and COO Björn Schneekloth. Following a festive speech by Dr. Schwabe and the presentation of our anniversary trophy, cornhole games started the inofficial part. Two food trucks provided delicious pizza and ice-cold desserts on the company premises. Afterwards, all employees and their families went to the LMCU Ballpark stadium to watch the West Michigan Whitecaps play baseball. Even though the Whitecaps lost, it was an unforgettable ending for this very special day!
Two days later, our 75th anniversary was also celebrated in San Luis Potosí, our Mexican ETO site. Dr. Michael Schwabe and Björn Schneekloth were also present at this event. The celebration took place at the Hacienda Peñasco, located north of San Luis Potosí. Following some team games, Mariachi, typical Mexican folk musicians, provided for a great atmosphere and party feel at the historic Hacienda. Accompanied by signature Mexican dishes, a DJ and the typical piñatas, it became a long and fun night.
Both celebrations were very different, but unforgettable ETO holidays in the Americas!
