From all over the world
Not only the company is international; the staff are, too. SCHERDEL invited us to meet some of them. During the conversation, the numbers 9,000, 5,000, 1,500 and 400 came up. What do they mean? The mystery is soon resolved: they are the number of kilometres from Marienberg to the SCHERDEL workers’ native countries. Koetsu Hashiba, Vice President of the joint venture TOGO SCHERDEL GmbH, has a clear lead: he comes from Japan. The spring manufacturer TOGO has been cooperating with SCHERDEL since 2003. The biggest car manufacturers in Europe and Japan count among their customers. Hashiba has been here in Marienberg since 2008. He talks about being the only Japanese person here with humour and pride. Nine thousand kilometres is really something, he says. He has settled in and feels at home in Marienberg with his wife and two daughters.
