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

10/12/2018

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. 21 employees from the family company’s various subsidiaries have reached these milestones and can boast 675 years of service between them – or 568 in the case of the 15 retirees.

The Managing Board invited the Roth employees from all over Germany to the Roth Atrium in Buchenau to celebrate. Employees from the locations in Buchenau, Wolfgruben, Eckelshausen, Niedereisenhausen, Burgwald, Datteln and Bischofswerda came together there. Claus-Hinrich Roth was on hand to congratulate them in person and pay tribute to their achievements on behalf of the Roth family. He said: "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. This is also true for the employees we are saying goodbye to today as they start their well-earned retirement." 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 and long employment at Roth is an indication of its positive working atmosphere. “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 Bernd Schmidt of Dautphetal gave a welcoming address and presented the retirees who had been employed at Roth for 40 years with certificates from the State Chancellery of Hesse. The official ceremony was followed by a shared dinner, with plenty of time to chat about the past, present and future.
