Topping out ceremony at lofty heights

On 21 June around 400 members of staff and guests gathered in sunny weather for the formal topping out speech on the second floor of our new building.


After a welcoming speech, Mayor Michael Dreier handed over a copper tube filled with current newspapers, coins and a certificate, which will be symbolically embedded in the new building. Building contractor Franz-Josef Dreker pointed out that this new 6,000 m² building is currently the biggest construction site in Salzkotten.
Managing Director Carsten Jochheim thanked all the craftsmen involved, who had ensured that the construction work was running to schedule despite some adverse weather conditions, and said that it looked as though the building would be ready for occupation in the autumn of this year as planned. The official ceremony was immediately followed by the annual summer fête in the company’s grounds.
