For the first time in its history, Störk Mess- und Regeltechnik GmbH in Dolle opened its factory doors to the general public. This was to commemorate 20 years of this temperature measuring technology company belonging to the WIKA Group.
The anniversary and the associated open house at Störk in Dolle was celebrated with a summer party. Among other things, anyone who was interested was given the opportunity to discover a bit more about the location. About 150 guests from business and politics were invited, together with the employees and their families, along with about 250 other visitors.
Everyone enjoyed a diverse and varied range of entertainments on the company premises, including food and drink, a raffle, activities for the children and music provided by DJ Duke. The production facility was showcased in a series of guided tours. Visitors were also able to gain an impression of Störk and WIKA at a stand with brochures and informative material, or in personal discussions. The guests also had the opportunity – with friendly support – to make their own thermometer.
Thanks to the assistance of the entire workforce and the support of the community of Burgstall, who provided and erected a marquee for the event, this summer party was a great success.
And soon… a new name for Störk
In his opening address, Alexander Wiegand recounted the story of the acquisition of Störk and its subsequent development as a member of the WIKA Group. The CEO wished the management and payroll staff all the very best for the future, into which Störk is embarking under a new name: one that will include WIKA. The workforce will be involved in the choice of the missing part of that new company name.
At present, the infrastructure-related conditions for the successful further development of the Dolle site are also being improved: The town will have slip road access to the new motorway, and a short while ago optical fibre cables started getting installed to provide broadband to the region.
