Preparations for the anniversary of Klöcker in 2021 just started

On April 29th, 2020 the starting signal was given for the preparations of the 175th anniversary of Klöcker in autumn 2021.

In cooperation with the faculty Journalism and Public Relations at the Westphalian University in Gelsenkirchen under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Rainer Janz, six students are working closely together with selected employees of Klöcker on designing an anniversary publication to illustrate the development of Klöcker from a manufacturer of furnitures in mid of the 19th century to a global market leader producing mechanical and mechatronical selvedge binding systems for the textile industry in weaving.

They are being supported by Prof. Dr. Manfred Keune, professor emeritus at the Pennsylvania State University in the USA, assisting the team as a Germanist with the historical revision of the long company history.

Employees and Management of Klöcker are looking forward to the festivities in 2021 especially while having in mind that Klöcker may inofficially look back on 300 eventful years.
