150 years in motion
We are celebrating our 150th anniversary. Many special events are planned for the anniversary year, all with a view to saying: Thank you!
In 1873, Joan Joseph Fiege founded a small haulage business in Greven in Westphalia. Today, almost 150 years later to the day, the brand of FIEGE stands for cross-sector services in Logistics, Digital Services, Real Estate and Ventures in both Europe and Asia. “With our 150th anniversary, we are celebrating a very special milestone. We wish to take this as an opportunity to focus on our employees – meaning those who helped our family business to become what it is today”, says Jens Fiege, Co-CEO of the FIEGE Group.
More than 23,000 colleagues are working at over 130 locations in 16 countries for FIEGE by now. “Over the summer we will be organising regional festivities for the FIEGE Family which we, as members of the family business, will be attending together with members of the Executive Board in the format of a roadshow”, Jens Fiege tells us about the plans. Always tagging along: The Büssing 8000, an articulated truck which was built in 1951 and which has been meticulously restored in the original FIEGE livery. “The historical truck is one of only three roadworthy models in Germany. Some of our former colleagues – above all, many former ones now in their well-earned retirement – very well recall the time when this model was used by FIEGE. They get this sparkle in their eyes when they see the Büssing for the first time. It symbolises that we have been in motion for quite some time now”, Jens Fiege says.
Even the legendary FIEGE Soccer Cup, which will take place in Münster on 3 June, will be given a very special touch in the anniversary year. Co-CEO Felix Fiege has an important message: "No matter whether as active players or as fans for their teams: We are happy about every single colleague who travels to Münster for this highlight in June and celebrate together with us."
FIEGE has also planned a special programme for partners and customers in the anniversary year. Felix Fiege explains: “Our relationships with our clients are more like partnerships, many of which will have existed for decades now. They likewise form an indispensable part of our success story – and that is what we wish to say thank you for.” For this, FIEGE will be organising several regional customer events to engage in an exchange and to network in autumn. Moreover, there will be a specially-designed anniversary logo, a new image film and a special edition of the LOGO magazine. “The preparations are already in full swing and the anticipation is huge", Felix Fiege says. “We wish to look back at our moving past while at the same time look forward to the future. And above all, we are especially looking forward to celebrating our anniversary with the entire FIEGE family and all friends of our company!”
