Sandler AG celebrated its 140th company anniversary on May 10, together with 240 guests from the political, economic and social spheres. The company announced that over the next two years, it plans to invest a total of €80 million at the company headquarters in Schwarzenbach/Saale, Germany and Sandler Nonwoven Corporation in Perry, Georgia, US.

Over the course of the past 10 years, Sandler has invested a total of €139 million in buildings and production lines, at the same time almost doubling its staff. The new investments will enable Sandler to expand both its product range and its customer service on both sides of the Atlantic. “Inspired by the future, we will face new requirements and challenges optimistically,” said Dr Christian Heinrich Sandler, president & CEO of Sandler, in a press release by the company.

Dr Sandler looked back on 140 years Sandler, on company and family history, on the path from the wadding factory to one of the largest nonwovens manufacturers worldwide. Premiering at the celebration, the new Sandler image video paid tribute to this successful development. In the film, the people who shaped the company and who continue to advance it, took centre stage. “Our 850 dedicated staff members are crucial to our long-term success. They identify with our company and they take responsibility.”

“Family-owned companies such as Sandler demonstrate that medium-sized enterprises are the real future of the German economy. I am proud to have companies, which continuously invest even in structurally more challenging regions. Thank you for announcing a further investment. 140 years of company history also provide new prospects and it is impressive how companies shape the future. That, however, is only possible if they continue to evolve—just as Sandler does. Congratulations on this anniversary, I wish you all the best and continued success,” said Dr Markus Söder, MdL, Bavarian prime minister.

“You not only lead your company with determination and vision. Without your unwavering efforts in all spheres, the region would not be so well off and for that you are highly esteemed. Congratulations. We are proud to have a company such as Sandler as part of our association,” said Wolfram Hatz, president of the association of the Bavarian Industry.

Dr Oliver Bär, hof district administrator, and Hans-Peter Baumann, mayor of the town of Schwarzenbach, congratulated Sandler on the 140-year success story. They stressed the importance of internationally active companies with strong ties to their home region and thanked the company management for their renewed commitment to Schwarzenbach through the new investment plans.

“No words of praise can be sufficient for the Sandler family, the family-operated company and its achievements,” said Bär. “Sandler creates values. One can sense that the staff members identify with the company, their pride. And we are also proud to have Sandler as part of our district.”

Baumann presented Sandler with the Golden Ring of Honour of the town of Schwarzenbach/Saale for extraordinary services rendered to the town’s economy. “Personally, and on behalf of our town council I would like to congratulate you on 140 years of company history. We thank you for your commitment and wish the company, the staff members, and the family of owners all the best for the future,” said Baumann. (PC)
