Founded in 1932 by Erhard Rohmer, the company had always been dealing with glass by manufacturing parts and machines for the glass-processing industry. His grandfather Friedrich Stimpfig joined the company in 1947, while his father Friedrich E. Stimpfig joined in 1962. When the current managing partner joined the company, it was divided into so-called business units to stay abreast of economic developments.
Thus the company today is focusing on the development, manufacture and international sale of CNC-controlled glass processing machines as well as on the manufacture of individual parts and machine components for the regional market. Recently, Rohmer + Stimpfig entered the promising market of renewable energy sources with a third business unit. The constant innovations and the introduction of new technologies, among other things, have led to the fact that in certain market segments we were able to gain a leading position on the world market today. Thus containers with high-performance systems are leaving the headquarters for the whole world today.
Friedrich Stimpfig was able to welcome numerous guests of honour and above all his employees. Lord Mayor Thomas Jung praised the development of Rohmer + Stimpfig, because today one can’t take it for granted anymore that a company can survive on the market for such a long time and keep on developing. He was especially taken with the inclusion of Christian values in a business culture of cooperation between employees, customers, suppliers and partners. Unfortunately this wasn’t practiced nearly enough today. After various panels had extended their words of welcome, F. Stimpfig donated a larger amount of money as well as a coupon for two wire box pallets of firewood to the Wärmestube Fürth. On the occasion of the company’s anniversary some employees were also honoured for their long years of service to the company, ranging from 5 to 45 years.
Friedrich Stimpfig primarily thanked his father, his family and his employees in his speech; without their support this kind of development would have been impossible. He elaborated on the subject of celebration, which for him was an expression of thanks, joy and community. Being thankful to all that help out, and not least being thankful for God’s blessings, too; sharing one’s joy with the birthday child and the celebrants as one family.
After a tour of the company, Rohmer + Stimpfig invited everyone to a sociable evening of music and dancing in a pub, where the birthday child was duly celebrated until long after midnight.
