Health Day with the AOK Baden-Württemberg!
For all employees on the second day of health in cooperation with the AOK Baden-Württemberg the company Sigrist was able to check and evaluate relevant factors for the current state of health or stress at various stations in the building - even during working hours!
Our company physician carried out a quick test to determine blood lipid levels. The biozoom sensor was used to determine the antioxidants that provide information about how fit your own body's defenses are. Employees of the company Mehrwert informed about the importance of the fascia for the widespread back and neck problems.
Highlight at the Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards
Together with Gieske Studios we are very proud to get presented the Silver Dolphin at the Cannes Corporate Media & TV Awards - in the highest category of "Corporate Films and Videos"! A special prize for a special film that all employees were very happy about and once again proves that our company is always up to date and loves creative minds. At this point again a big thank you to the Gieske Studios for the outstanding cooperation.
Our new colleague "Frida" is ready to start
Frida is the new pilot plant that was designed and built by WalterLemmen for surface modifications of titanium and stainless steel components. After cleaning, processes for activation, etching, color and black anodization of titanium materials are available. In addition we have electropolish options. We will start with stainless steel, but as an option we plan to to offer electropolishing for titanium as well.
The system is designed for small to medium series. The main focus is on medical technology, but we also see applications for electronic components and applications for measurement and control technology.
