10 years Company Anniversary and Agent Meeting
In 2006 a handful of fender specialists, each with many years of experience in the industry, founded FenderTeam GmbH, a company which started business on January 1st, 2007.
10 years later, the company, now called ShibataFenderTeam AG, has developed from a total newcomer with a small office in Hamburg to a multi-national group with offices and production sites in America, Europe and Asia. Having successfully grown the business and completed over 4500 projects worldwide, it was time to celebrate.
On June 15th 2017 all sales agents from around the world, friends and partners as well as colleagues from all ShibataFenderTeam offices and from our mother company Shibata Industrial Co. Ltd. from Japan were invited to Berlin in Germany to celebrate the anniversary as well as to hold our regular agent meeting. The event started with a casual come together where old friendships were renewed and new ones began.
The following day – the first day of our Agent Meeting - was dedicated to the presentation of our brand new product catalogue and latest marketing activities. It was rounded-up by technical presentations and information about latest market developments. Last but not least, Shibata Industrial Co. Ltd. presented their latest and very exciting investment plans which will take our group to a different level. Further details will be part of a separate news release.
After this first day of work, the group gathered to celebrate the 10th anniversary. The event started with a sightseeing tour followed by a gala dinner and hours which were filled with inspiring talks, new contacts, dancing, and a lot of fun.
On the second day, we visited our production site in Rechlin, Germany where the different production lines for steel fender constructions, foam fenders and HD-PE sliding fender extrusion where shown.
The day ended with a relaxed barbecue and the return to Berlin.
Instead of presents we asked our guests to donate for ‘German Maritime Search and Rescue Association’ (‘Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger - DGzRS)’. They are one of the most modern sea rescue services in the world, financed exclusively through donations and voluntary contributions. We are glad that we were able to continue our cooperation with DGzRS to contribute to their the life-saving activities.
We would like to thank all participants for their coming and the great days we enjoyed together in Berlin.
