Celebrating 20 years together

The partnership cooperation between the WILD Group and German medical technology manufacturer Heidelberg Engineering goes back 20 years. The perfect occasion for an anniversary meeting in Völkermarkt.

Despite or rather precisely because of digital transformation, personal exchanges remain an essential success factor in cooperation. The 20th anniversary of a customer relationship was recently the occasion for a special celebration. WILD hosted a delegation from Heidelberg Engineering for a two-day visit.

Those who took up the invitation to visit Carinthia came predominantly from the company’s operations division. Once in Völkermarkt, they were offered exciting insights into WILD’s production and development activities. Moreover, they used the opportunity to intensively discuss topics like process and work flows among colleagues. “In times of ever-increasing requirements, such as those imposed by the MDR or the FDA, this personal exchange of knowledge has become indispensable and can yield significant competitive advantages”, explains Manfred Gallé, Head of Medical Technology at WILD. The guests from Heidelberg Engineering could not agree more.

On a common course

During this special company trip, the partners from Germany were also given sufficient time to delve into Carinthia’s great landscapes and culinary delights. Under a sunny, clear blue sky, the visitors enjoyed the Wörthersee lake in all its glory during a trip on the “MS Kärnten” motor boat. The participants were also offered a spectacular view of Carinthia’s natural landscape from the Pyramidenkogel observation tower.

CFO/COO of Heidelberg Engineering Claus Gärtner was happy to receive such unreservedly positive feedback: “I am convinced that this visit was another milestone in our excellent cooperation.”
