Bernd Berger has been a loyal employee at PFISTERER for forty years – a long and exciting time in the company’s history, as became clear during the anniversary celebration. Bernd Berger started his apprenticeship at the Gussenstadt plant at a young age. Today, he is responsible for industrial training himself, and was honoured for his 40 years of service. After a plant tour with families led by site manager Hermann Schuller and Joachim Schauz, managing director Dr. Konstantin Kurfiss together with HR director Tobias Liedl paid tribute to the long-serving employees, presenting company gifts as well as official certificates from the Chamber of Industry and Commerce. They also gave their special thanks to Steffen Jordan and Gerhard Fronius for their more than 25 years of service, as well as to the following employees who have worked for PFISTERER for more than 10 years: Brigitte Balzer, Denise Bruckmeier, Nico Bretschneider, Danny Christoforidis, Thorsten Geiger, Julia Hebenstreit, Christian Lotspeich, Patrick Schaffer, Gerhard Schuller and Brigitte Tekert.
