Corporate Anniversary - 100 Years SMAG

Salzgitter Maschinenbau AG (SMAG) celebrated its 100th anniversary on Sep 6 and 7, 2019 with two major events. It started on Friday evening with a gala event in the Gebläsehalle Ilsede, to which employees and international business partners were invited. Salzgitter's Lord Mayor Frank Klingebiel and the former Federal Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel gave the honorary guest speakers. The celebration was concluded with an open day at the company premises on Windmühlenbergstraße in Salzgitter-Bad. More than 1,000 invited guests, including active and former employees and their families, flocked to the company premises and made a journey through 100 years of SMAG history. On a tour through the factory halls, visitors were able to marvel at an exhibition on the changeable history of the company and have a look at machine demonstrations at various stations. The program was supplemented by numerous fun modules for children and adults. The below video conveys an impression of the positive mood on this special day - from the perspective of the visitors. At the same time as the anniversary, the company chronicle "SMAG - 100 Years of Building the Future" was published. The 160-page illustrated work describes 100 years of changeable company history. The chronicle can be ordered from the bookstore under ISBN 978-3-86037-667-6 or online from the publisher as a print edition or download version.
