wenglor Welcomes 1000th Employee
In spring 2022, wenglor, the sensor technology expert from Tettnang, officially reached the impressive milestone of 1,000 employees within the company group. Brigitte Kassner started her new job at the site in Tettnang as a sensor technology development engineer in the development department, signing her employment contract as the thousandth member of the innovative family. The 28-year-old from Ravensburg can therefore look forward to an exciting and varied job, as well as to working with 999 other colleagues in over 26 countries worldwide. A historic milestone in the company’s almost 40-year history.
“Healthy company growth can only be achieved by increasing the turnover, as well as the number of employees and the space required for this,” says wenglor Managing Director Fabian Baur. “Our turnover grew by 25 percent last year, our new development and production centers in Tettnang and Munich will be completed this year and we have now also reached the impressive milestone of 1,000 employees. The wenglor group is therefore growing very healthily and stands for sustainable growth as a strong employer in the region.” To mark the occasion, Brigitte Kassner was personally welcomed by wenglor’s management team, as well as Human Resources Manager Sarah Bauer and accepted into the innovative family as the newest member. “We are delighted that you have joined us as part of our wenglor family and wish you all the best for our future together.”
At Home on Lake Constance, at Ease Around the World
The 1,000 employees are spread across more than 26 countries worldwide. The largest number of wenglor’s employees, around 400 in total, are located at the company headquarters in Tettnang. This site is home to the administration, as well as parts of production and development. A further 340 wenglor colleagues work in production, development and sales in Sibiu (Hermannstadt, Romania). Around 60 employees work in the subsidiaries wenglorMEL and the recently acquired company TPL Vision, which develop and produce 3D image processing technologies, software and illumination. The remaining employees are distributed across 25 sales subsidiaries throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America.
Growth in Employee Numbers Requires Strong HR Skills
It is far from easy to find skilled workers in the current situation. wenglor is looking for additional support in almost all areas of the company to be able to meet the current demand for industrial sensor and image processing solutions. “It has become increasingly difficult to find employees in recent years. As HR experts, it is therefore all the more important for us to present wenglor as a strong employer brand and to repeatedly highlight the attractiveness of the location,” explains wenglor Human Resources Manager Sarah Bauer. Brigitte Kassner’s appointment as the thousandth employee was therefore a real success story: “We are proud that Brigitte has chosen us. In particular, the fact that she is gaining a foothold as a woman in a technical profession is no coincidence, but reflects our spirit of the times,” says Bauer. “It is clear that a lot has happened at wenglor in the almost 40 years since the company was founded.”
