The Memmert Family had a cheerful, motley celebration on the factory premises in Büchenbach on 29 September 2016. Customers, politicians and representatives of the building contractors involved attended the official inauguration of the newly erected production hall and office wing. Of course, all Memmert employees and their families were invited as well.

Tennis players have their Wimbledon, triathletes Roth. For 15 years now, the world's largest and most popular race with athletes and fans alike, is the Challenge Roth. For Memmertian sport and triathlon fans it is a red-letter day, as important as family birthdays and Christmas.

Not only the Memmert family was looking forward to the Rothsee Triathlon with growing excitement. Over 2000 like-minded athletes and spectators gathered in the festival areal for two days of summer, sun and sunshine to enjoy the varied triathlon programme that weekend.

The Night of Apprenticeships took place in Roth for the third time in a row on 17 June 2016. More than 200 interested attendees made their way to the Memmert site in Büchenbach by car or shuttle bus. This year our guests Gentner also presented their apprenticeships in the Memmert canteen for the first time.

They both worked at Memmert for 48 years. The fact that Salvatore and Gabi Giurdanella are going into retirement now is unimaginable for many fellow Memmert employees. This was obvious at the farewell party from the high praise given to them both by the factory management in Büchenbach and the commercial and technical management.

For different reasons, Memmert has to undergo a recertification process every three years in accordance with the worldwide strictest quality management system for medical devices DIN EN ISO 13485. The most important reason is clear: highest possible safety for our clients.

Our Memmert team in China can look back on a very successful 2015. Outstanding efforts in sales and marketing were acknowledged with two of the most popular awards in the sector.

This year it was an especially difficult task for managing director Christiane Riefler-Karpa to decide which of SOS Children's Villages’ projects should be supported by the traditional Christmas donation. In many parts of the world, children especially suffer too much.
