Between perms and aid transports - MBS turns 35!
The 80s were a colourful and lively decade. In Germany, "Wetten dass,..." dominated Saturday night television, the Commodore 64 entered German households, the Rubik's Cube was invented and Jane Fonda started the fitness hype with leggings and perm. In all the hustle and bustle, Bernd Wilkes founded MBS in Cologne and in this issue he gives us an entertaining insight into the early years and the development up to the present day.
Things also get nostalgic when we introduce you to our client from the Siebengebirge and very topical when we take you almost simultaneously to Viet Nam, where MBS has been successfully expanding for several years. In general, this issue of Insight once again highlights the entire bandwidth of MBS. Whether digitalisation, quality, passion and innovative solutions - MBS meets the ever more complex challenges with excellent know-how and the will to innovate, but also with traditional values such as reliability, diligence and precision.
The basis of all this is our employees, who give their best every day with great professional and personal commitment - even in times of war! It was they who, partly because of their personal family background or simply as a reaction to the disturbing images from the Ukraine war, pulled out all the stops to help the people in Ukraine as early as the end of February. The fact that word of this commitment quickly spread to our customers and triggered a wave of willingness to help there as well - that touched us all very much and showed once again how wonderfully this large MBS family sticks together.
With best regards and wishes for the coming summer!
