The new year has started well and after everyone has shouted the obligatory “Happy New Year” to each other, we could also devote ourselves to our daily tasks again. This year, too, we have set ourselves ambitious goals. It is therefore very fitting that a new colleague and three new colleagues are actively supporting us at the Hanover location right at the beginning of the year.
Well over 1,000 companies, including the most valuable brands in Germany, have spoken out in favor of vaccination as part of a nationwide campaign and together set an example. All participating companies have revised their logos and slogans to include a clear “Yes” to Corona vaccination protection.

As part of the modernization offensive at ILFA, it was time to replace our screen printing table. We were almost a bit nostalgic about it, because it was our oldest machine and had served us faithfully for many years – 37 to be precise! The successor is a modern, three-quarter automatic precision screen printing machine with a 4-column system and a retractable table top.

There are straight career paths, there are colorful employment biographies, and there are people who have already done various jobs and nevertheless, or perhaps precisely because of this, know exactly where they actually want to go. Sven also belongs to the later category. For us, Sven is something like the famous Swiss Army Knife: versatile and always there when you need him. In the ILFA operations team, he looks after our machines, the buildings and the entire technical infrastructure.
