At the start of September, Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG invited the children of all its employees to take part in an art competition entitled "PistenBully, BeachTech, PowerBully at work ...".
The idea was to create an unusual and personal Christmas card for our customers, suppliers and business partners.
We have been astonished by the entries! There are so many beautiful pieces of art! Children have their own very special take on the work of a PistenBully or a BeachTech beach cleaner. We are particularly pleased that the PistenBully, the BeachTech and the other vehicles are so deeply rooted in our employees' families. Kässbohrer Geländefahrzeug AG is indeed a family company!
A total of 37 children aged 4 - 14 took part from Germany and further afield.
The children turned their attention to technical details and to the environment, such as a ski slope or a hut with smoke coming from its chimney. They focussed on impressive scenery and on snapshots. A PistenBully underwater was even submitted as an idea. Under the motto: Nothing's impossible.
The three best pictures in each age category won a prize. There were 5 categories altogether. Each winner of 1st to 3rd place received a voucher for a winter sports shop. All the children were given a little personal present as a memento for taking part.
Because so many impressive artworks were submitted, the CEO, Jens Rottmair, also spontaneously decided to invite every child to come on a guided tour of the Laupheim works with an accompanying grown-up. The occasion was also to be used for the official prize-giving ceremony.
It all happened yesterday. The foyer in Laupheim was filled with children's laughter. The tour through the site, which was conducted by the Head of Development and another colleague, certainly wowed the young visitors. And the parents were just as enthralled as the children!
Finally they were all served dinner, before returning home happy and satisfied with all their new experiences. Our customers and business partners will be able to marvel at the artwork on this year's Christmas card in just a few weeks.
