Celebration week for the company anniversary

HAIGER, 13 May 2019 – From 6 to 11 May Carl Cloos Schweisstechnik GmbH celebrated the 100-year company anniversary with a week of festivities. In total about 5,000 guests visited the different events at the CLOOS premises in Haiger during the celebration week. For 100 years, CLOOS has pushed forward pioneering achievements in welding technology. On 6 May 1919, the engineer Carl Cloos founded the company whose headquarters have been in Haiger since 1924 in Siegen-Weidenau.

"During the celebration we presented the visitors more than 30 new products," emphasises CLOOS Managing Director Sieghard Thomas. "We are proud to belong to the 2 percent of German companies which are more than 100 years old. With our motivated, well-trained employees and innovative technologies we have the best conditions for the next 100 years." On Monday, 6 May, CLOOS opened the celebration week with an official reception. More than 150 top-ranking representatives from politics, business and associations took part in the opening session at the company premises in Haiger. On Tuesday and Wednesday the Welding Symposiums for our German and international customers took place. In the morning, a lively symposium program with historical reviews and looks into the future waited for the participants. The speech “Digital Transformation” of Prof. Dr. Klemens Skibicki informed the participants about how to successfully meet the step into the digital age. Furthermore, our customers offered practical insights into the world of manual and automated welding with CLOOS. The practical demonstrations of welding processes, sensor and software solutions rounded the welding symposiums.

On Thursday, there was a sales meeting of our national and international subsidiaries and representations. CLOOS has 13 subsidiaries and more than 50 sales and service centres all over the world.

On Friday evening, CLOOS invited the employees to a festive evening event where they celebrated until early in the morning. The Open Day for the CLOOS employees with their families and friends rounded the celebration on Saturday. With a varied program for young and old the organisers resisted the bad weather. Much more than 2,000 visitors took the opportunity on this day to get informed about the technologies and the production runs of the welding specialists.
