Nuremberg (06/2022) – 50 years Klinkhammer was on the program – but it wasn’t supposed to be a classic anniversary celebration. Rather, intralogistics experts and customers were invited to an intensive exchange of ideas on current topics and trends in the industry. The culinary well-being and good entertainment were of course taken care of. And all guests were allowed to take a look at the technical centre and the new building. An all-round successful event.
June 30th was the day: The intralogistics expert Klinkhammer celebrated its 50th anniversary with a top-class expert event. After the welcome, the program started with the keynote speech of Econsio on the pitfalls of project management. The presentation was followed by key notes of Bosch Rexroth on AI-supported robot order picking and of Exotec on shuttle robots. The morning was concluded by the best-practice speech of Frischdienst Walther on the topic of digitization and warehouse automation in the food service.
After lunch, the experts were able to visit the new building. While the morning focused on imparting knowledge and demonstrations in the technical centre, the afternoon was all about application, suitable warehouse management software and networking. In large and small groups, a wide variety of topics were considered from different angles. Managing directors and executives from the fields of logistics, supply chain, operations and business development discussed how they can design their logistics processes to be even more successful, how process automation will develop in the future and how medium-sized companies can achieve their logistics goals more efficiently through partial automation. Frank Klinkhammer, managing director of Klinkhammer Intralogistics GmbH: „We wanted to use our anniversary to bring together leading minds from the logistics industry with practitioners from the companies after the Corona break. This was a great success and we are happy that our guests were able to take away many ideas for their everyday work.“
The employees celebrated after the experts
While Thursday was dedicated to the experts and users, the anniversary was celebrated extensively with the employees and their families on Friday. They were the focus of attention on this day. „Our employees are the basis for our success. Thus the celebration was also a big thank you to all our colleagues“, emphasizes Frank Klinkhammer. Whether flight simulator with VR goggles, bull riding or photo fun box, XL Carrera track or bouncy castle, there was a lot on offer for entertainment and fun. The sucking pig on the spit and many other delicacies provided for the culinary well-being.
