Since the introduction of compulsory masks about two weeks ago, mouth and nose masks have become an integral part of daily life. Our company has responded to the increased demand by combining existing capacities with the sewing know-how of the hat production department. The result: The Mayser community mask, a very comfortable mouth and nose mask that our factory in Rožňava has been producing since the end of February.
Since 2016 Mayser apprentices have been participating regularly in the CIC additional qualification “International Clerk” in London. The goal is to prepare future specialists for the requirements of the European labour market and to teach them intercultural competences. In the spring of 2020, Mayser apprentice Janina Miller successfully completed the three-week course.
Sinayda Pley achieved the best achievement in the exam for the milliner apprenticeship in 2019. The former Mayser apprentice received the award at the “National Honours Presentation in ICC Occupations” of the German International Chamber of Commerce (GICC) on 9 December 2019 in Berlin. Sinayda Pley was trained in the artisan trade of hat making from September 2016 to July 2019 at the Mayser plant in Lindenberg, under the expert guidance of Training Director Ulrike Aßfalg.
Taking the cold plunge (or not)
You’ve graduated from school, signed your trainee contract, and are looking forward to your first paycheck – but uncertainties arise as you are about to begin your first year of training. How are things done here? Where do I find who I am looking for? Who can I ask and what would others do in my situation? These and other questions were answered by the training team during the traditional Introductory Days at the beginning of September, which was attended by all 15 trainees in Ulm and Lindenberg.
A project with a large-scale effect
Installation of the new HVAC system was completed in July 2019 - just in time for the hot summer weather. Mayser now has air conditioning from the front office to the production area to the warehouse and logistics. This guarantees the employees a comfortable and clean working environment.
Carl Robertson is our new Chief Operations Officer (COO) in the USA. He is the successor of Julius Rummel, who returned to his position as Managing Director in Germany at the beginning of the year. Carl previously held the position of Quality Manager at Mayser USA and can contribute decades of experience in the automotive sector.
Expertise for increased safety in public transport
From 18 – 21 September in Berlin, Mayser once again presented its solutions as a leading specialist for improved safety in local public transport at InnoTrans, the leading international trade fair for transportation systems. The focus at this year’s trade fair was on non-touch safety systems for bus and train doors.
Strong interest in safety systems made in Germany
From September 5-7 at inter airport in Beijing, Mayser Ulm and Mayser Kunshan presented their expertise for safety technology in the area of airport ground handling. Everyone anticipated the first joint exhibit with excitement. The response of the visitors to Mayser’s products was very positive.
Mayser celebration and opening ceremony in Belleville
In 2008, when Mayser opened the first subsidiary outside of Europe in Belleville, Michigan, that was a big step for the company. Our courage paid off: Since 2012 Mayser has its own production capacities there, currently with a total of 140 employees in production and sales. The employees, together with their families and business partners, celebrated this success and the 10th anniversary of Mayser USA on August 25 in a very successful event. The highlight of the day was the official opening of the new company premises.
Foam and Safety Technology under one roof
Automotive Interiors Expo Europe in Stuttgart is a special trade fair for Mayser: It is only the second time that our products from the areas of Foam and Safety Technology are on exhibit there. Until tomorrow (Thursday, June 7) industry experts can visit our booth to learn about leading technologies for car interiors.
