Opening of the new meeting center

News overview: In the presence of prominent guests from politics and business, as well as customers, suppliers, companions and the Welser family, the meeting center was inaugurated.

"Meeting people: Thinking and acting in generations"

With a brilliant event, the 2nd construction phase of the new Welser Profile Meeting Center in Gresten was put into operation after a construction period of about 3 years. As the name suggests, the building will be a meeting place: customers will be welcomed there from now on, it houses meeting rooms, shows our product portfolio and can even be booked for events.

On September 10, customers, suppliers, representatives of state and federal politics - first and foremost Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, Governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner and President of the National Council Wolfgang Sobotka - as well as the entire extended Welser family and many companions met to ceremonially open the 4000 m2 building.

The event was held under the motto "Meeting people: Thinking and acting in generations!" and so the entire festive day was focused on the central values of "encounter" and "sustainability".

A number of high-caliber speakers added to the event's glamour. In general, the program was structured as a hybrid event. Due to the current pandemic, about 120 guests were present. For other interested parties, the discussions and lectures were filmed and made available as a livestream. In the end, a whole 200 guests followed the event online!

Highlights were also the presentation of the 1st Welser Sustainability Report as well as the release of the 1st stage of the installation of one of the largest PV systems in Lower Austria on the hall roofs of the plant premises by Governor Mikl-Leitner.

At the concluding gala dinner, people were still busy netting and Thomas Welser expressed his pride in the event, the building and, last but not least, the long-standing business relationships with the guests that made the day such a great experience.
