Bobst is celebrating its 125th anniversary with a slew of events over the next calendar year. Using the slogan “125 Years: For the Next Generation,” Bobst is using its 125-year milestone to thank its customers, honor its staff and pave the way for the future.

Three key initiatives will punctuate this program of 15-year anniversary celebrations:

  • Customer events: The 125th anniversary will feature in the company’s trade exhibitions, customer days and open days. In particular, Bobst will be commemorating its anniversary at the drupa 2016 and K 2016 international shows, which will be held next spring and autumn in Düsseldorf, Germany.
  • “BOBST – One Group around the world”: On March 23, 2016 all Bobst staff will join together for a day celebrating the company’s 125 years. The celebrations will kick off in Japan and will end in Mexico, passing through each of the group’s facilities during the day. This event, which is being organized in all subsidiaries around the world, will also be an opportunity to thank all who work there for their contribution to the success of the business.
  • Building a future: 125 years of history and innovation are a great source of inspiration, influencing both the culture of the business and its development by the next generation. The board of directors is planning the implementation of collective projects at a local level, coordinated by Bobst staff. These long-term initiatives represent a joint commitment and offer employees the opportunity to build the future together.

Today, Bobst has a presence in over 50 countries, operates 11 production facilities and employs over 4,800 people throughout the world. The Group intends to keep on investing in its personnel and launching new products to meet the needs of the market and consolidate its long-term growth sustainably. The Bobst vision, based on strong human values, has always been the driver of its success and will remain at the core of the next generation’s business project.
