30 years of synchronous engine construction in Bremerhaven

We have been building modular synchronous engines in Bremerhaven since 10 July 1984, first by Hasselbach & Kausch and then by Rotek since 2000. This anniversary was celebrated by Rotek on 11 July 2014 with a barbecue feast at the Coloradostrasse site.

Also three of our employees celebrate their anniversary this year: Peter Adu-Gyamfi, who has worked for Rotek since 20 years and Andreas Fech and Eugen Jakobi, both of them since 10 years.

Mr. Hasselbach told many interested listeners about the early days of the company. The weather was also kind to us and everyone enjoyed the relaxing end to the week.
