Chatting, laughing, getting to know each other better and also taking a look behind the scenes of the WILD Group in a relaxed atmosphere. Hundreds of family members and employees of WILD and PHOTONIC accepted the invitation to the Family Day in Völkermarkt.

Family members and friends recently took advantage of the Family Day in Völkermarkt to take a look inside the assembly and production halls, clean rooms and development offices, gaining exciting insights into the day-to-day operations of a technology company. They also learned first-hand what WILD employees accomplish here every day. Whether it’s equipment for more precise eye examinations, spectrometers for sorting plastics, or blood analysis devices that read tens of values in the shortest possible time: What is created in the WILD Group improves people’s lives in many areas, and the approximately 500 employees and their families can be justifiably proud of this.

For the management, this commitment of the employees is not a matter of course. “We want to say a big THANK YOU to our entire team and their families and friends, who stand behind them all year round, have their backs, support them, motivate them and rightly also demand well-deserved breaks,” the managing directors COO Arthur Primus, CTO Wolfgang Warum and CFO Michael Wratschko are pleased about the great interest and the noticeable cohesion with the Family Day. “This day encourages us in the many projects that lie ahead in the near future. Because we are on a strong growth course and look forward to being able to tackle new projects together full of verve.”

Live music from Slovakia and fun and games for the whole family were on the program at the joint celebration. In the marquee as well as in the shade of the trees, people got to talk over grilled delicacies or a cool drink. The kids had fun with face painting, challenged themselves playing soccer, gave free rein to their urge to move in the bouncy castle and enjoyed the large offer of ice cream and cake.
