Our longtime co-worker Wilfried van Calis celebrated his 25-year tenure.

In July, Fruhen Messebau was again a worthy occasion to celebrate. Our longtime co-worker Wilfried van Calis celebrated his 25-year tenure.

When Willy entered the grounds of Fruhen Messebau on 12.07.1993, everything was a little smaller. Only 10 employees belonged to the family business, which was then led by today’s CEO Bernd Fruhen. Despite the small size of the company compared to today, the Viersen company produced trade fair stands for events all over the world. This also pleased the former restaurateur Willy van Calis. Even today, he likes to look back on his beginnings at Fruhen Messebau and laughingly tells of his experiences in Kiev, Moscow or Tokyo. Bernd Fruhen also likes to remember these times, which, as he puts it, “were much closer and more familiar at that time than they are today. We moved around the houses together and did a lot of other things together. ”

If you ask your colleagues for shared memories and anecdotes, you will find lots of great stories about the Harley lover. But not only for one or the other fun Willy is to have, especially his achievements at work and his years of experience are known in the company.

Among his colleagues Willy is regarded as an all-rounder, who understands his craft very well. He found particular pleasure in the locksmith shop of the trade fair construction company. Even though most of the stand components are made of wood, steel, aluminum and other metals are also important components of many, especially complex constructions. Especially then, the precise hands and the many years of experience of Willy van Calis are often in demand. The processing of different materials and the expert handling of carrier systems reflect only a fraction of Willy’s competences and daily tasks. He thus contributes especially to the range of services offered by Fruhen Messebau. The success and the great result of numerous large exhibition stands in Germany and internationally is therefore also a merit of our Willy.

As a tribute to his loyalty, his diligence and his work he received after 25 years of service to Fruhen Messebau a bronze medal and honorary aristocracy of the Chamber of Crafts Dusseldorf. Our Managing Director Mr. Bernd Fruhen and our authorized representative Mr. Christian Dahmes solemnly presented him with a certificate and thanked him. The rest of the fair construction team also congratulates and looks forward to future joint projects.
