The employees at the Siegen facility were able to enjoy a party premiere this year. The Oktoberfest held on September 30, 2022 brought the workforce of WaldrichSiegen and Herkules together and created a great atmosphere. In glorious weather, hundreds of people in traditional costume celebrated on the company grounds of WaldrichSiegen and Maschinenfabrik Herkules in Eisenhüttenstraße, which was a complete success in a variety of ways: In the course of a large raffle, 5,000 euros were raised, which were donated to the Kinderinsel, a project of the DRK Children's Hospital in Siegen.
"Team spirit is very important to us," says event manager Juliane Knuff, who was responsible for organizing the Oktoberfest. Together with management assistant Kristina Köhler, she happily handed over the donation check to Viola Kappestein, head of nursing at the Kinderinsel. "As with our Oktoberfest, our management always wants to give the staff the opportunity to grow together as a unit. We have strong ties to the region and are naturally all the more pleased to be able to support important local projects with campaigns like this!"
