Open day on 25 May

On Saturday, 25th of May 2019 SOMIC the manufacturer of end-of-line packaging machines opened its doors and gates in bright sunshine. From 10:00 a.m. more than 1500 visitors came from near and far following the invitation and wanting to know more of the world of automated packaging technology.

The occasion was the 45th anniversary of SOMIC this year, but also proudly to present the finished rooms for the electrical construction and the new training workshop for our apprentices.

On a circular tour through the entire company, the visitors were able to observe how a packaging machine is produced - from the order to the production of the individual parts to the assembly of the machine. This gave the visitor a deep insight into the processes and structures of the company. In all departments, friendly employees explained what happens here in the daily workflow. The highlight of the tour was the action in the commissioning hall. Here some machines were shown in live operation. For example, croutons or cocoa powder were packed into cartons at top speed - ready for transport to the supermarket.

After the tour, the visitors were able to enjoy snacks and drinks as well as coffee and cake. The little ones were able to get artistic make-up, do drawings and enjoy an ice cream. The amount of the collected donations was rounded up by SOMIC and forwarded to the kindergarten St. Rupert in Amerang.

Enthusiastic voices were heard throughout. Particularly striking were the bright, clean rooms, which show openness and transparency. In addition, one could feel that the employees are proud to be part of the SOMIC family. At 3:00 p.m. a nice, informative open house event came to an end.
