40 years is just the beginning
Lingen (Ems), 03.07.2012. - Kampmann GmbH celebrated its 40th anniversary with a big party. Around 550 Kampmann employees and company guests accepted the invitation to the company's Lingen headquarters.
Managing Director Hendrik Kampmann thanked his employees for their 40 years' contribution to the company's market success with an elaborate party. The celebration looked back at the company's launch: Heinrich Kampmann became self-employed on 1 July 1972 and shortly thereafter made an entry in the Commercial Register. This developed from a one-man operation into a successful global company with around 700 employees, three production sites and 15 sales offices, developing, producing and distributing technologically leading systems for heating, cooling and ventilation.
Standing ovations for Heinrich Kampmann
The company founder Heinrich Kampmann received standing ovations. Surrounded by his family he paid tribute to all current employees and, in particular, the former and long-standing employees from the early years of the company. He traced the history of the different sites in North-East Lingen until the headquarters moved to Friedrich-Ebert-Straße in 2000. It was here that his son Hendrik Kampmann organised a fantastic evening with a BBQ buffet, the literally "magical" magician Nikolai Friedrich and an impressive fireworks display. All employees received an original corporate film as a lasting thank you.
The happy celebration ended in the early hours of the morning. One of the in-house mottos - 40 years is just the beginning - floated above everyone in the marquee.
