During the past 10 years, Sandler had invested a total of €139 million in buildings and production lines while 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," says president and CEO Christian Heinrich Sandler.
Looking back on 140 years of Sandler, during which the company evolved from a wadding factory to a mulitnational nonwovens producer, Dr. Sandler adds, "The founder of our company, my great-grandfather Christian Heinrich Sandler, surely never dreamt that his start-up would grow to become a globally active company 140 years later."
The celebration was also attended by Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder, Wolfram Hatz, president of the Association of the Bavarian Industry (vbw), Oliver Bär, Hof District
Administrator and Hans-Peter Baumann, mayor of the town of Schwarzenbach. Bauman presented Dr. Sandler with the entrepreneur 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," he says.
