FIMRO GmbH 8th Foundry Conference in the Harz Mountains
For the 8th time already, the FIMRO GmbH based in Langenstein (Halberstadt) organized a symposium for the foundry industry on November 2nd and 3rd 2021. The conference took place in the Harzer Kultur- und Kongresshotel in Wernigerode.
The symposium was already planned last year in connection with the celebration of the 25th anniversary of FIMRO GmbH, but due to Corona it was postponed to the year 2021. Before the start of the event, the participants took the opportunity to visit the company FIMRO GmbH in order to get an impression of the company and its employees. This opportunity was also used by the mayor of the city of Halberstadt Mr. Szarata and the head of the department of economy, urban planning and culture Mr. Rimpler. At the venue of the conference in the Harzer Kultur- und Kongresshotel in Wernigerode, this year's participants could inform themselves in 15 lectures about current developments in the fields of mechanical engineering, application, service and research. This year's series of lectures focused on the development of the die casting industry since the foundation of the company 25 years ago, as well as future challenges and trends. The more than 80 guests and speakers came not only from Germany but also from neighboring countries. Thus, the conference continues to develop into an international event.
At the end of the first day, the previous owner and managing director, Mr. Bernd Mrochen, was ceremoniously bidden farewell to his well-deserved retirement by the participants and representatives of associated companies. In the future, the family business will be continued in the second generation by Mr. Matthias Mrochen, who has already been working in the company as managing director for several years. During the breaks and the following evening event, the opportunity to exchange experiences and network was used intensively by the participants.
