Family day in Grevenbroich a great success

How is aluminum rolled? Where do father or mother work in the factory? How long do I go to get to know the hydro rolled product plant in Grevenbroich? Three of many questions at the big Hydro family day; On Saturday, well over 5,000 visitors received a response and enjoyed the lively get-together between the marquee, the food mile and the children's carousel.

For the first time, the plant stopped its continuous production for such a party, opened many companies for the declared tour and served free food and drink. Folders carefully guided the arriving guests to free parking spaces, and factory mascot Fjordy welcomed the many children, life-size, above all.

Ten limousines on one roller

Point 10, the Grevenbroich plant opened the doors for its employees, their family members and numerous alumni. Anyone who wanted to migrate to the seven large company buildings prepared for the visit and explore the production processes spent around two hours traveling between the coating line and the printing plate center, maintenance and training. Everyone now knows how thin 6 micrometers feel and how expensive - for example a VW Golf! - the aluminum roller on the roller is and how heavy - as much as ten limousines!

It was all the more enjoyable to have coffee, cake and & nbsp; rest first-class live music or take the small train through the winding, original main business to & nbsp; drive. But the scent of three whole oxen on skewers and other delicacies constantly enticed the guests to the dining area under the new canopy of the truck loading zone.

"Grandpa work nice!"

Fire brigade exercises and a photo shoot of children in safety clothing, bouncy castle and face painting as well as a course with mini forklifts rounded off the program. The most beautiful reward after months of busy preparation, however, was received by the dedicated roller mills from their children, who immediately wanted to come back to Hydro on Monday - just like works councilor Frank Hein's two-year-old grandson: "Grandpa work nice!"

Plant manager Dr. Stefan Kästner and his organization team drew a very positive balance. "It was a great festival, we really gained strength together." In everyday life, there was often no opportunity to take a deep breath and feel a feeling that came over on Saturday with shining eyes, lively explanations and joyous celebrations: the pride of the Grevenbroich rolling millers for their strong job.
