Obstacle run and wheel of fortune for a good cause, tours of the new building, a play street made up of FRÄNKISCHE products and much more – at the Staff Day in Königsberg, employees and their families experienced a varied programme of information, games and entertainment.

Königsberg, July 2019. After the official opening of the plant expansion, also the employees, their families and retired employees had the opportunity to visit the new building: the annual company party took place at the “Western Plant” premises this time. Approximately 2,000 visitors excitedly explored the logistics centre, the production hall, the administrative section with a canteen, and the associated combined heat and power station and the ventilation system. In addition, they caught up on the products of FRÄNKISCHE, which can be used for a wide variety of applications.

The products of the Drainage Systems Division were used in a quite unusual way: The FRÄNKSICHE Challenge, an obstacle race in which children and adults competed over different distances, took them through and over pipes and storage blocks. Mud and water basins offered some relief from the summer heat. For each obstacle overcome, Otto and Julius Kirchner (President and Executive Vice-President) donated one euro to the FRÄNKISCHE staff foundation which supports company members in emergency situations. Thanks to the wheel of fortune and the obstacle race, over EUR 1,500 could be collected for the staff foundation on that day.
