Employees of the traditional Nuremberg company GOSSEN METRAWATT have bravely rolled up their sleeves!
A small prick with a big effect – now it’s done! The joint vaccination campaign for the employees of the GMC Instruments Group, which has its headquarters in Nuremberg and includes the Nuremberg companies Gossen Metrawatt, GMC-I Service and MTP Messtechnik Produktion, went off successfully!
Only four weeks ago, the group of companies had consulted intensively with the vaccination centre, the public health department and the employers’ association to set up their own vaccination campaign and thus take into account the preventive health care of their employees. Three weeks later, most of the employees who had not been vaccinated before received their first vaccination with the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine by company doctor Dr Müller. “In spite of all the bureaucratic and organisational hurdles: as a medium-sized company, we managed on our own to carry out a vaccination campaign of our employees immediately in the first week of the release for company doctors,” explains Georg Schmeußer, Head of Human Resources of the company group.
The main challenge was to organise the vaccine, transport it safely to the Südwestpark in Nuremberg and then cool it properly. Once there, the expertise of the group’s staff and a specially set up device ensured that the vaccine and its cooling temperature were constantly monitored.
This was a great action that shows what can be achieved when everyone wants to and sticks together. With such team spirit, there is nothing to fear for the future!
„This was a great action that shows what can be achieved when everyone wants to and sticks together. With such team spirit, there is nothing to fear for the future! This is the only way for a company to achieve the 115th anniversary. Celebrate your birthday despite all the circumstances from outside that you cannot control. Whether financial crisis, technological change or pandemic. You have to look at the future positively, embrace it with courage and make the best of it for everyone“, says shareholder Dr. Hans Peter Opitz, pleased about the team spirit and the quick implementation at the Nuremberg headquarters of the group of companies. “True to our company motto: We ensure safety from the employee through our products to the customer.”
Founded in 1906 by Dr. Siegfried Guggenheimer in Nuremberg, this traditional company has been developing high-precision measuring and testing technology “Made in Germany” ever since. This makes the group of companies one of the market leaders worldwide. A large part of the production for the GOSSEN METRAWATT brand also takes place at the Nuremberg site. 330 of the almost 800 employees work in the metropolitan region.
