Ludwigsburg, the former royal residence just outside Stuttgart, recently hosted an event that has a special significance for manufacturing companies: the conference and gala for the “Factory of the Year 2018” competition. Gerhard and Ralf Schubert, Managing Directors and Shareholders of Gerhard Schubert GmbH, were delighted on behalf of the entire company to receive the award presented to them by last year's winner Ilkay Ormandy, Plant Manager at P&G Crailsheim. In her laudatory speech, she underscored the passion required to build a business, develop innovative and compelling products, and ultimately succeed. “You can feel this passion when you walk through the company and meet the people working there. Nothing has changed since Gerhard Schubert’s early career!”
In Crailsheim, 900 employees work on the many packaging machine solutions in batch sizes of 1.
From now on, the “Factory of the Year” trophy will remind employees and visitors of the coveted award.
