“Made in Viersen” – A business lunch in our house.
On April 26, the 13th Viersen event “Made in Viersen” took place at Fruhen Messebau. More than 75 company representatives from the city and the district of Viersen met in a relaxed atmosphere on our premises for a get-together. Thomas Küppers, head of Wirtschaftsförderung Viersen, welcomed all the participants in our logistics hall, which was converted into an event location, and thus opened the event. Also our managing director Bernd Fruhen, who leads the enterprise since 1987 in the third generation, was visibly pleased about the multiplicity of the appeared guests and called everyone warmly welcome. Particularly the cooperation with regional companies and thus the strengthening of the region are particularly important to Mr. Fruhen. Because of this, he did not think long when the request of the Economic Development Viersen to host such an event was addressed to him. Of course, they also turned to a local caterer, Stefan Bäumges, the managing director of the “Old Braukeller” and the “Edible”. He and his team accompanied the event and enjoyed the meal with appetizers, live cooking and cold drinks.
Also our mayor, Mrs. Sabine Anemüller, and the deputy mayor, Mr. Hans-Willy Bouren, were among the guests and entered into a lively exchange with those present. In a good atmosphere, many interested people decided to take a tour with Mr. Fruhen through the company. He told us about the history of the company, about the small carpentry shop on the Hoserkirchweg in Viersen, where it all started and about the growth of the company in recent years. The participants were offered insights into the carpentry, locksmithery, electrical department and paint shop. It became clear that Fruhen belongs to Viersen, like Viersen to Fruhen.
Once back in the hall, it was finally possible to take a photo with the mayor on our photo wall. Not only did Mrs. Anemüller show her model qualities, Mr. Fruhen and numerous other entrepreneurs also gladly took this opportunity and took a souvenir photo.
We would like to thank the Wirtschaftsförderung Viersen for the opportunity to host this event with us and all the guests for the numerous appearance and the many interesting discussions.
