On the evening of Thursday, July 27th, 2017, a successful barbecue gathering once again took place at the premises of Emsland-Stärke GmbH in Emlichheim.

At around 2 pm, the approximately 300 attendees gathered in a tent set up especially for the event. The barbecue was preceded by a general meeting, where Emsland Group management – headed by Mr. Udo Hinkelmann, Mr. Peter Höning and Mr. Gerrit-Jan Wesselink – took the opportunity to report on the group’s current situation.
Besides providing a review of the previous 2016/17 financial year, information on management decisions made in the past two years and an update on current raw material development, an overview of the corporate goals for 2017/18 was also given. Mr. Norbert Albs, Chief Human Resources Officer at the Emsland Group, made use of the positive outlook by getting employees tuned into the project “Emsland Group – A great place to work.”
