Indian subsidiary celebrates its 20th anniversary

On 26 September 2020, the oldest of Gebr. Pfeiffer’s seven international subsidiaries celebrated its 20th anniversary.

Due to the current situation, the usual local ceremony was dispensed with, and instead the three-hour celebration was held virtually. Thus, the employees of Gebr. Pfeiffer (India) Private Ltd. based in Noida, near New Delhi, met in a virtual meeting to celebrate the foundation.

The ceremony started with some video speeches. First of all, Mathias Dülfer, Chairman of the Gebr. Pfeiffer parent company, reviewed the success story of the subsidiary. This was followed by a video message from his fellow board member Christoph Geupel, who emphasised the outstanding relationship and years of fruitful cooperation with the Indian colleagues. The former Chairman and co-founder of the Indian subsidiary, Dr. Eduard Kulenkamp, thanked Jayaram Nambiar, the first president of the subsidiary, who has already retired, and wished the colleagues many more successful years. Congratulations also came from his former colleague Otto Jung. The aforementioned Jayaram Nambiar, who was in charge of the subsidiary from its foundation in 2000 until 2009, referred among other things to the outstanding development of the team, which has grown from an initial three employees to currently over 60 specialists. As a result, the Gebr. Pfeiffer brand with its high-quality products was able to establish itself firmly in the Indian market after only a few years. Former President D. B. Nayak and Director Sanjeev Jain also sent their greetings and wished the company continued success. At the end of the greetings the current Managing Director D. D. Wanjale had the opportunity to speak to the participants. He gave a short overview of the success story of the subsidiary from challenging years at the beginning up to the 100th mill sold in India in 2012, the move into the firm’s own office building “Pfeiffer House” in 2013 and the successful expansion of the sales territory to countries like Nepal and Sri Lanka from 2016 up to the prospect of the 150th mill in India in the near future.
