Around 400 guests, including the entire staff, numerous customers from all over the world and almost the entire Management Board of Gauselmann AG, celebrated the 25th anniversary of GeWeTe at the end of June.
The anniversary celebrations were held in the Phantasialand adventure park in Brühl, while in the afternoon, numerous customers also took the opportunity to visit the company’s Mechernich plant.
Since its foundation in January 1993, cash handling systems provider GeWeTe has been a wholly owned subsidiary of the Gauselmann Group, developing, producing and selling money changing systems, pay stations and ticket vending machines for the national and international market, with more than 60,000 systems installed worldwide
In his welcome speech, the company’s MD, Aristidis Tsikouras, thanked the Gauselmann Board, as well as the firm’s staff for their trust-based and successful collaboration.
Speaking on behalf of his father, Armin Gauselmann, praised the innovations that have emerged from the GeWeTe think tank to date and which have gained importance internationally in his keynote speech.
With its comprehensive expertise as a cash handling, GeWeTe has been able to respond to a wide variety of challenges with inventions, such as the CarWash vending machine model for car washes, an automated pay station for butchers and bakeries, automated pay stations for public facilities such as airports, railway stations, hospitals, canteens, swimming pools, and wellness centres.
Armin Gauselmann emphasised that such achievements can only be realised with a great team and thanked the employees for their unswerving commitment, which in some cases has spanned decades.
Around 120 employees work at the company’s Mechernich production and development site, while a further 15 are employed in the GeWeTe branches in the UK, Spain and Italy.
