IST Metz: iPads for the employees and celebrating success
Celebrating a successful business year
GERMANYThe goals for 2013 were exceeded and, for the first time since the economic crisis of 2009, the company managed to generate turnover of more than EUR 60 million . »This success is one-of-a-kind and it is the employees alone we have to thank for it, for their commitment and superb performance « says Dirk Jägers, Managing Director of IST Metz.
As a sign of the company’s appreciation for the hard work carried out by employees, all full-time staff members at IST Metz received an iPad mini just before Christmas. There was an additional gift for 22 of the approximately 450 employees at the company’s headquarters in Nürtingen, who have been with the company from 10 to 30 years. Each employee was presented with a gift basket from Managing Director Dirk Jägers and Helmut Böhm.
The following employees were recognised for their ten years of service to the company: Rico Glatzer, Sven Heck, Olga Knysch, Steffen Kühefuss, Sabrina Di Martile, Helena Molitor, Steffan Pforr, Christina Preiss, Antonio Rizzo, Harald Schneider, Ilonka Schulz and Joachim Seefeldt. Jelena Dugonjic, Stefan Feil and Carmen Speidel were honoured for 20 years of service. Heinz Schmohl, Sonja Schober, Gerhard Weber and Silvia Zuckrigl have been with the company for 25 years, while Rudi Ensle has been with the company even longer, 30 years to be exact.
Lars Schwencke was recognised for his ten years of service with subsidiary Eta Plus Electronic. At Gerhard Metz Metallbau, another subsidiary, Ralf Fritzsche was honoured for 20 years of service.
There was also a special mention for Helmut Böhm and Rolf Singer. Helmut Böhm stepped down from the IST Metz Executive Board and took over the management of company subsidiary Gerhard Metz Metallbau at the start of the year. Rolf Singer has now taken his well-earned retirement from the role of Commercial Manager after 22 years in the post. He remains an important asset to IST Metz, however, staying on a Managing Director of S1 Optics.
