Dr Detlev Seidel, Managing Director Operations of the Piller Group, expressed his thanks to the employees celebrating their jubilee. “The loyalty of long-serving employees is the backbone and capital of our company. Especially in today’s times, which are characterised by short term thinking and a shortage of skilled workers, loyalty has a special significance.”

They are also role models for our junior staff in difficult times. Their knowledge and skills have contributed to Piller being in such a good position today.”

After a guided tour of the Luisenhall Saline in Göttingen, the last operating commercial pan boiler plant in Europe, the jubilarians were invited to dinner at the Hotel Freizeit In.
