Nedschroef Beckingen celebrates 150 years of success

September 6, 2019

Nedschroef Beckingen, an affiliate of the leading Dutch automotive supplier Nedschroef, celebrates its 150th birthday on 7 September 2019. Founded in 1869 as a factory for small hardware in Beckingen, Nedschroef Beckingen is now, after an eventful history, a recognised manufacturer of fasteners.

Jörg Bosch and Stefan Tils share the management of Nedschroef Beckingen. “We are proud and grateful that our Beckingen plant has successfully overcome the company’s challenges and that we can celebrate this anniversary,” said Jörg Bosch. Stefan Tils added: “We’ve been able to invest a lot in the plant over the past four years, so today we are seeing a relatively stable utilisation of our production again.” Nedschroef Beckingen is the main employer in the local community.

A ceremony attended by Saarland Prime Minister, Tobias Hans, Merzig-Wadern County Councillor, Daniela Schlegel-Friedrich and Mayor of Beckingen, Thomas Collmann will kick off the 150th birthday celebrations in Beckingen on 7 September.

The celebration is entirely dedicated to the employees, their families and visitors to the Beckingen site. With an open day on 8 September, they will have the opportunity to take a closer look at the plant during a tour. The event will be rounded off with a concert by the Beckingen Wind Orchestra, the Saarbrücken Truck Knowledge Workshop and an exhibition of the history of the company, about which a commemorative publication will also be produced.
