At the 10-year anniversary of RAUMEDIC AG, the focus is on people
CEO Martin Bayer looked back on the eventful time. The company has grown constantly over the past ten years. Over 50 million euros have been invested in continual expansion and modernisation. The plant in the north of Bavaria that the company moved into shortly after it was spun off from REHAU AG + Co. has already become too small. Therefore, RAUMEDIC is investing an additional 26 million euros in a new building with spaces for clean room production, logistics, a laboratory and administration. Martin Bayer thanked the company's companions for their lasting support and trust. He particularly emphasised the employees' large contribution to the company's successful development. The workforce has more than doubled since the company was founded, from 220 to 580. "Thanks to their experience and product and market knowledge, they are of inestimable value. Without them, there would be no RAUMEDIC," said Bayer.
Jobst Wagner, President of the REHAU Group, also looked back and emphasised that the spin-off of RAUMEDIC and location in Upper Franconia were a commitment to the region. However, the company will grow not only in Germany, but also in Asia and the US. He praised the "RAUMEDIC spirit" and was pleased by its successful development.
Dr. Reinhard Schick, Chairman of the Supervisory board of RAUMEDIC AG, emphasised that the key to this success is its well-trained employees.
Wilhelm Wenning, District President of Upper Franconia, Dr. Oliver Bär, District Administrator of the Hof district, and Stefan Pöhlmann, Mayor of Helmbrechts and Chairman of the A9 central commercial zone association, gave their congratulations and were full of praise for the successful development of the medical engineering company. Dr. Manfred Steinhäußer, Medical Director of the Hochfranken clinics, rounded out the session of speeches with a brief look at everyday life in the clinics. This gave the audience an idea of how RAUMEDIC products are used in surgery.
The anniversary celebration afterwards focused on the employees and their families. Over 1000 people celebrated together into the evening hours.
