Hoffmann Mineral celebrates its 111st anniversary

To celebrate the 111st anniversary of Hoffmann Mineral and to inaugurate the newly built production hall “Gereute 1” SONAX and Hoffmann Mineral (both part of the Hoffmann Group) arranged a big party with almost 1,500 guests.

At the beginning president Manfred Hoffmann held a short speech and emphasized that the new hall was not only a signal for the production to continue to be located in Germay but also for all 400 jobs to be secured now and in the future. The Bavarian minister president, Horst Seehofer, who was present as well, shared these thoughts and was proud to announce that the Hoffmann group was even older than the CSU political party.

After the official part of the party it was possible to peek into the new hall or ride on a bus to the siliceous earth extraction site. Moreover, there were two clowns around and a music band for not only speeches but much fun and entertainment.
