Christmas party at the Calypso dinner show in the Pforzheim Gasometer
A special highlight was Christmas party, which this week took place at the Calypso dinner show in the Gasometer Pforzheim. The employees were able to experience a true "feast for all the senses" in a grandiose ambience.
Calypso was a successful combination of a spectacular show, culinary enjoyment and an elaborate light and sound staging. The Parkhotel Pforzheim's kitchen conjured up a fine four-course menu. Between the individual courses, the acrobatic, artistic and dance performances by international top artists on a 360 ° stage were a delight.
Truly a feast for the senses and a wonderful and extraordinary evening that colleagues will not soon forget.
SOMI at MEDICA and COMPAMED 2021 in Düsseldorf
From November 15 to 18, 2021, exhibiting companies and specialist audiences were finally able to meet again for a personal exchange at MEDICA and COMPAMED, the world's largest medical trade fair in Düsseldorf. Everyone involved was in a good and confident mood, even though fewer visitors were allowed in the halls due to the corona.
Frank Wolfsdorf, Sales Manager at SOMI, presented the services of the Sigrist subsidiary at the booth and also drew a positive conclusion: “The trade fair has by far exceeded our expectations. We had a lot of promising national and international contacts. How important these personal encounters are for business relationships was heard both from colleagues from the companies represented and from our visitors."
SOMI rewards willingness to vaccinate!
Due to the current, worrying development of corona infections, the SOMI company has decided in a new operating order to take more stringent measures for employees in the workplace.
In return, all employees who can be proven to be fully vaccinated receive a one-time “Corona bonus” of 500 euros at the end of the year. This is intended to reward their willingness to make a sustainable contribution to contain the pandemic and to keep the company safe.
The new sterile warehouse is taking shape
Now that all the manual work such as installing windows, painting and flooring has been completed, the construction of the shelves in the sterile warehouse on the upper floor has recently begun - from the archive system for office materials in the anteroom to the heavy-duty shelving for numerous pallet spaces.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our colleagues from Sigrist who have supported us for their hard work over the past few days.
The entire Sigrist team warmly congratulates our colleague Melis Caliskan, who passed her last exams with flying colors and successfully completed her training as an office management assistant in our company.
We are very pleased that Ms. Caliskan will remain with us in the future and will support the colleagues at SOMI in the areas of administration, organization and logistics with great motivation from August.
As a reward for our now "former trainee", besides the congratulations of the entire team, there was also a beautiful orchid from training manager Diana Bohnenberger as a small reminder of this great end.
So the professional life can now start fully.
Great progress on the construction site
The craftsmen are currently working flat out in all areas. This is particularly evident on the outer facade due to the energy-saving insulation and the installation of new windows. But there is also a lot going on inside: in addition to the work in the sanitary area and the electrical installation, we also pay great attention to fire protection.
At the same time, we would like to thank all the companies involved for their great commitment and the good cooperation for the new SOMI production site in Pforzheim.
ACIG encounters in times of the corona virus
The effects of the coronavirus were also clearly felt at the ACIG meetings in Tuttlingen last week in the form of lower visitor numbers and increased hygiene measures. The quality of the discussions that Frank Wolfsdorf held at his booth was very good in this respect and the visitors were also extremely interested in the wide range of services offered by SOMI.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Müller (photo left) for the excellent organisation and implementation of the event.
Invitation to the ACIG meetings
On March 12th and 13th we will be present with a booth at the ACIG meetings in the town hall Tuttlingen and present our entire range of services.
The motto of the event is "Services and problem solutions for the manufacture and sale of surgical instruments and medical technology". The fair is open from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Admission is free. We look forward to many visitors and interesting discussions.
New production site for SOMI
As a subsidiary of Sigrist GmbH, SOMI is setting up a new production facility with strong regional craft business partners in Pforzheim, Karlsruher Straße 24 (Wilferdinger Höhe).
The modern production facility for ultra-fine cleaning and assembly of medical products under clean room conditions (class 7) will be finalized to the end of 2nd quarter 2020 and will have a footprint of around 3,000 m².
Visiting the fair in Düsseldorf
From November 18 to 21, exhibitors and trade visitors from the healthcare industry met at the world's largest medical trade fair MEDICA and the leading trade fair for the supply market for medical manufacturing, COMPAMED. Frank Wolfsdorf was at SOMI at both trade fairs, took numerous appointments there, had constructive discussions and made promising new contacts - two exhausting, but also interesting and successful days!
