Family celebration at LÄPPLE in Heilbronn

The sun is shining over LÄPPLE in Heilbronn: At the beginning of July, after eight turbulent years, the automobile supplier held a large family celebration again. Production contracts from Daimler, Porsche, Audi and BMW provided for full order books and good spirits. Executive Board Member Olaf Hedden was optimistic: "I think we can all be proud of our company again and look to the future with confidence." Numerous employees with their families took advantage of the opportunity to marvel at the capabilities of the press line, the body-in-white and the training workshop and experience the results first-hand in finished vehicles such as the Porsche 911, the Porsche Boxster, the BMW 6 series and the Mercedes Actros. Owners, members of the supervisory board, and retirees did not want to miss the family celebration. Surrounded by the sounds of the LÄPPLE chapel, Olaf Hedden, together with four Läpple stockholders opened the new employee park in Heilbronn. An exhibit of historical automobiles, a sweepstakes, information booth from companies of the LÄPPLE Group, and a colourful children's programme ensured that visitors young and old alike enjoyed a varied and entertaining day. And long after the celebration, LÄPPLE continues to evoke fond memories: A calendar, the first of its kind ever published in this form, will leave a lasting impression on employees and stockholders of the LÄPPLE family through the months to come.
