Dr. Wilhelm Binder Day 2012
Kendrion was pleased to welcome more than 300 guests to the second Dr. Wilhelm Binder Day on 22 November 2012. The event was held at precisely the place where it all began more than a hundred years ago. Customers, business associates and Kendrion colleagues gathered for an afternoon filled with interesting presentations, inspiring encounters, technological innovations and surprising discoveries.
The afternoon’s theme was the world of aviation, symbolising the adventurous journey of technology and innovation Kendrion and its customers are taking together. The afternoon started with an official word of welcome from Kendrion CEO Piet Veenema who provided an overview of Kendrion’s development and gave insights into the company’s future. Professor Wallaschek, a member of Kendrion’s Innovation Board, outlined the company’s innovation strategy and its practical implementation. The external keynote speaker was mountaineer Reinhold Messner who took the audience on an incredible expedition through his mountaineering adventures, while linking these experiences to business issues such as funding, innovation, research and development.
The transition from the official part of the 2012 Dr. Wilhelm Binder Day to the informal part was marked by an immense humanlike, illuminated figure that was elegantly moved forward by five puppeteers. It showed the visitors the way to the exhibition hall where the four Kendrion business units presented their activities and showed their latest innovations. It provided an opportunity for everyone to become acquainted with all the various aspects of Kendrion. Guests were able to enjoy drinks and finger food in between discussions, talks, meetings and tours. Given the numerous positive reactions received from the guests attending the event, Kendrion can justifiably look back on a successful second edition of the Dr. Wilhelm Binder Day.
