Ebersdorf bei Coburg, 28 September 2020 +++

This year, the Schumacher Packaging Group, one of the largest family-run manufacturers of corrugated and solid board packaging solutions, is honouring all employees celebrating their anniversaries in the Ebersdorf and Sonneberg plants. In 2020, 85 women and men are celebrating their anniversaries with the company. Special congratulations this year go to Roswitha Schumacher on the occasion of her 50-year anniversary; she has been a key factor in the positive development of the company over the past few decades. "This year in particular has shown how important it is that we, as a team can always depend on each other" emphasises CEO Björn Schumacher. "We would therefore like to thank our employees wholeheartedly for their faithfulness and dedicated commitment."

Despite considerable growth in the past few years, Schumacher Packaging has firmly remained a family business, with flat organisational structures and a real sense of togetherness. "Although the year 2020 has presented us with particular challenges, it is the team spirit and solidarity within the company that makes us strong", notes Björn Schumacher. "That is largely down to our employees and for that, we are truly thankful." Each year, the company management places great importance on honouring the commitment and reliability of long-standing employees with a celebratory ceremony. Therefore, Schumacher Packaging once again extended the invite to the Goldene Rose in Grub am Forst on 25th September 2020. "Unfortunately, due to the current situation, we had to limit our traditional anniversary celebration to a small group" explains Björn Schumacher. "However, all the other people celebrating anniversaries will receive a gift certificate for the Goldene Rose, so that they also will be able to celebrate their anniversary, privately, with a delicious meal."

Half a century in the company – a fitting reason to celebrate

Roswitha Schumacher celebrates a very special anniversary this year. Together with her husband, Wulf Schumacher, she built up the family business into one of the largest packaging specialists in Europe and supported her husband in all his business decisions with advice and assistance. Roswitha Schumacher was responsible for Controlling and Finance within the company. In addition, she was in charge of the training division and for many years sat on the examination board of the IHK (Chamber of Industry and Commerce) for the qualification of industrial clerk. With the takeover of the plant in Bielefeld in 1999, Roswitha Schumacher led the gift packaging division. She continues to support her daughter-in-law, Anna Schumacher, who took over leadership of this division in 2016. With her far-sighted decision-making, Roswitha Schumacher has actively helped shape the company and has played a crucial part in its success. Today, her two sons, Björn and Hendrik Schumacher lead the Schumacher Packaging Group.
