Martin Höhn celebrates 80th birthday

 

Martin Höhn, founder of the companies Martin Höhn GmbH and FLURO-Gelenklager GmbH, celebrates his 80th birthday in March.

Born on March 1, 1941, Höhn grew up in Isingen. There he attended elementary school from 1947 to 1955. This was followed by an apprenticeship as a butcher in Rosenfeld and then an apprenticeship as a toolmaker in Balingen, as well as further training as an industrial foreman.

The desire for independence grew, and so he and his brother set up their own business in 1973. In a garage in Trichtingen, the two manufactured sophisticated precision parts. In 1979, the two companies Martin Höhn GmbH and FLURO-Gelenklager GmbH moved to their current location in Siemensstraße in Rosenfeld, at that time with 640 square meters of floor space. Several plant expansions and major investments followed. Today, around 170 people are employed there.

Martin Höhn has managed to build up two innovative companies from a garage foundation, which are now successfully managed by his son Reiner Höhn. Nevertheless, Martin Höhn is far from thinking about a well-deserved retirement - the two companies are his life's work, and so he still invests a lot of time today.

Honor for special achievements

In November 2019, he was awarded the state's business medal for outstanding entrepreneurial achievements and in gratitude for special achievements to the Baden-Württemberg economy. He has always acted in the spirit of an ecologically and socially responsible entrepreneur, and not only in his professional life, according to the laudation.

Martin Höhn has also always been socially committed outside his two companies. For example, he supported the construction of the musicians' home of the Trichtingen music club as well as all events and associations in the region. In addition, he was a member of the Epfendorf municipal council for 20 years and a member of the supervisory board of Raiffeisenbank Geislingen-Rosenfeld for 27 years.

In addition, he is a family man and enjoys sports in the fresh air - whether on foot or by bike. His wife, his two children and above all his four grandchildren are his main focus. Today, the entire staff of Martin Höhn GmbH and FLURO-Gelenklager GmbH would like to congratulate him on his 80th birthday with a sporty gift for the coming cycling season.

Company excursion 2019: Review

 

At 7:00 am, 94 colleagues toasted with a glass of sparkling wine in front of the company building and looked forward to a great company excursion in 2019.

The weather kept its promise and so, strengthened with champagne and butter pretzels, we made our way to Bad Schussenried at 7.30 am on this golden autumn day. First stop was the Ailinger mill. After a schnapps from own production, we got an insight into the operation of the mill and then had the opportunity to buy the great products of the Ailinger mill and here again to try one or the other liquor.

On the drive towards Aulendorf we made a short stop at the parish church of St. Oswald in Otterswang. An eight-meter-large Thanksgiving rug made of natural materials was laid impressively here by eight women.

After a group picture we went to the Pagenmahl in the Aulendorfer Ritterkeller, where we were allowed to feed as in the Middle Ages. Following the rich lunch and the one or other mug of beer or wine, was a visit to the experience brewery Bad Schussenried of the Ott family. After a short stay in the idyllic beer garden, we got a tour of the entire brewery.

Following this, we made our way home in our two coaches and thanked Mr. Seemann and his colleague for having brought us safely from station to station.

We were very happy about the numerous participation in this year's company excursion!
