Anniversary celebrations at Swiss "ineltec" exhibition

Datwyler is 100: to celebrate the occasion Dätwyler Cabling Solutions AG invited customers and partners at the trade exhibition in Basel to a big party on its stand.

Back in late June a gala evening, a staff party and an anniversary funfair for the people in the canton of Uri were held at Datwyler headquarters in Altdorf.

On 9th September, with the slogan "100 years of connecting", Datwyler Cabling Solutions invited its Swiss customers to celebrate the company’s birthday on its stand at the ineltec trade fair.

250 guests were present to toast the anniversary and celebrate with the Datwyler team. They were mainly installers, planners, dealers, partners and key accounts who had accepted Datwyler´s invitation or had quite spontaneously extended their visit to the Basel trade fair.

Towards evening Christian Scharpf, Head of Sales for the Swiss market, opened the buffet especially prepared for the party. Hot and cold canapés were served together with typical Swiss dishes, finishing off with a sweet from the cake buffet. The start of festivities was accompanied by a folk music entertainment from "Schwyzerörgeli-Trio Eggflue".

Well fortified the party then proceeded to the official part, which Johannes Müller, CEO of Dätwyler Cabling Solutions AG, launched with an address on our past 100 years. "We do not want to rest on our 100 year-old laurels," he stressed in his speech. "On the contrary, we must look forward and ensure continuing profitable growth through innovation and intensive market cultivation."

There followed a video on the eventful history of the Datwyler group and DJ Pit at the mixer console then prolonged the spirit of revelry until late in the evening.

"It was a successful party in a relaxed and very friendly atmosphere," reminisced Christian Scharpf. "Thank you to all our guests for their trust, and we hope they will remember this occasion for a long time to come. We look forward to continuing our close and exciting collaboration."
