Roth Industries honours retirees and employees celebrating service milestones for their long-standing loyalty

11/12/2017

Roth Industries threw a party in honour of staff members who have been serving the business for 40 or 25 years and to say farewall to those who have retired this year. 31 employees from the family company’s various subsidiaries have reached these milestones and can boast 820 years of service between them – or 431 in the case of the 14 retirees. The Managing Board invited the Roth employees from all over Germany to the Roth Atrium in Buchenau to celebrate.

Staff members from the Dautphetal sites, Biedenkopf, Steffenberg, Burgwald, Datteln and Bischofswerda came to Buchenau for the occasion. Claus-Hinrich Roth was on hand to congratulate them in person and pay tribute to their achievements on behalf of the Roth family. He was emphatic in his comments: “We are delighted to celebrate our employees’ long-standing loyal service – in their individual areas of activity, they each make a vital contribution to the success and development of the business.” Directors, HR managers, supervisors and the workers’ council all added their congratulations. Head of HR Michael Donges thanked all those who had reached milestones and those who have retired for their tremendous commitment and spoke about their careers with the Roth Group. “The low staff turnover at Roth is an indication of its positive working atmosphere,” he explained. “We are proud of the fact that our employees remain loyal to us for so long.” He presented them with loyalty bonuses and gifts. Mayor of Dautphetal Bernd Schmidt and his counterpart from Biedenkopf, Joachim Thiemig, spoke a few words of welcome and paid tribute to the long-serving employees. The event offered guests the opportunity to go on a tour of the company and visit the historical exhibition that was opened to mark Roth’s 70th anniversary. The official ceremony was followed by a shared dinner, with plenty of time to chat about the past, present and future.
