MHE-Demag Philippines 25 Years of Celebration

MDP has grown significantly since its humble beginning in 1990 and now we are celebrating its silver anniversary and its most successful year to date. On December 4, 2015 MHE-Demag Philippines held its 25th year anniversary celebration. The celebration was divided into two parts; the first part was a day time event for customer and supplier appreciation at the MHE-Demag, Bicutan facility in Manila attended by 100 guests. The second part was held in Dusit Thani Hotel in Makati and dedicated for MHE-Demag employees.
The customer & supplier appreciation event was successful with an open house that showcased the MHE-Demag facilities, equipment, and many products. Our guests could see various Aerial Platforms, Lift Trucks and Gondolas in operation, touch the equipment to get a better feel of it and the brave ones could even take a ride. This event was attended by MHE-Demag Philippines’ top clients such as: Philex Mining, Solid Cement, Makati Development Corporation, Lufthansa Technik, DATEM Construction, JG Summit, Megawide, and Universal Robina Corporation.
Marc von Grabowski, MDP President, started the day with an opening speech that contained company overview and presentation. It was followed by the AVP messages of the previous presidents of MDP showing projects from the past 25 years. After that, MHE-Demag Regional Managing Director, Karl Tilkorn and Marc presented our loyal customers with a sign of appreciation, then followed by award ceremony for our top supplier presented by Mike Sanchez, our Material Manager. The event was then continued with the plant tour by Lea Borja, MDP's Production Manager. She showed the different stages on how to build a crane in our factory. This event gave MHE-Demag an opportunity to build relationship with our clients and show them how much we appreciated having business with them and that we are still here to serve them and deliver the best material handling equipment.
The second part of the celebrations was held in the evening; the event theme was silver and black, attended by 200 employees celebrating together with top management from the region.
