Inalfa award. Keep it up!

On April 12, Pollmann China had another reason to celebrate. On that day, this year’s “Inalfa Suppliers Day” took place in Chongquing where the Jialing river in the south-western part of the country meets the Yangtze Kiang. This sprawling city of 30 million is known for its large number of companies from the automotive industry. Ford and Hyundai have located here, and Inalfa itself has facilities in Chongquing which are supplied with Pollmann products.

Project manager David Gressl was the star of the day. He has been with Pollmann China for three years and attended this year’s “Inalfa Suppliers Day” in person. Inalfa recognized the high quality of its collaboration with Pollmann with an award.

The global market leader in sunroof mechanisms and door lock housings whose products are installed in 93% of all top-brand vehicles is also celebrating its 130th anniversary.

The visitor numbers showed that Pollmann with its long tradition has made a name for itself as a key player in the modern automotive supplier industry and is also ranked among the top employers. Guests could move freely through the plant facilities along a guided path. The departments showcased technologies and manufacturing processes, and the HR team around Dr. Ernst Wurz presented the many different job profiles and career opportunities available at Pollmann. The company is looking for 60 new employees next year just for the new Pollmann plant in Vitis.

Vienna. May 23, Aula der Wissenschaften – Gala event to recognize outstanding family-owned businesses. Pollmann, a global company headquartered in Waldviertel, has been voted “best family-owned business in Lower Austria”.

Fourth generation cousins Markus and Robert Pollmann are leading the family business today.

The company currently employs 1,700 people in their own production facilities on three continents in the automotive hotspots of Europe, Asia and North America.
