The SORG Engineering and Design Office in Anyang, celebrated its 10th anniversary recently.
What began as a small office with just six staff has become an important part of the global Sorg Group and now employs 14 specialists. A further expansion of the capacity is planned.
The development of the Chinese operation is mirrored in the changes in the work carried out there over the past 10 years. The office initially carried out preparation work for the main drawing office in Lohr, Germany.
It now works independently to produce the design and engineering for steelwork and plant components using AutoCAD Mechanical 2D and Inventor 3D to make the drawings.
Guests of honour at the anniversary celebration in the Huan Shui Bay Hotel in Anyang were members of the Anyang council and the local Hightech district, who joined Sorg staff from Germany and China.
After greeting the assembled guests in Chinese, Sorg Managing Director Alexander Sorg went on to thank the town and district representatives for their assistance during the establishment of the company 10 years previously and especially for their continued support up to the present time.
Mr Sorg presented a Certificate and a specially produced glass sculpture to Harald Zenker, Managing Director of Sorg Anyang, and Achim Kreser, Engineering Manager in Anyang.
Mr Sorg went on to emphasise the most important contribution of the employees to the company’s success and thanked them for their commitment.
Two members of the Anyang team, Gu Fan and Li Rui, have been with the company since the beginning, and the opportunity was also taken to celebrate their personal 10th anniversaries.
Mr Sorg and Mr Zenker offered their best wishes and presented the two with commemorative gifts at the event on May 23rd.
