SML is 25 years young
It was on 1 July 1995, when SML was officially launched as a private Austrian company. This was reason enough to celebrate the 25th anniversary in an appropriate way, and in accordance with the current regulations. On 1 July 2020, exactly 25 years after its formal foundation, SML’s active and retired staff members gathered in the spacious inner courtyard of SML’s new headquarters. An eye catcher of the event were a pictured timeline with partially private photos of staff members, reflecting the dynamic development of SML that had its starting point 25 years ago. From the beginning, SML has been launching a series of pioneering innovations in the field of extrusion systems for the plastics and packaging industry. It captured a niche and today, SML is a globally accepted market and technology leader in its business segment. Since its foundation, SML’s annual turnover has risen steadily.
“Beside the diligence and the dedication of our staff-members it is our stable ownership structure that considerably contribute to the overall-performance and the advancement of SML”, said Karl Stöger, CEO of SML at this occasion. Peter Huemer, principal owner of SML, stated in his speech that SML with its 25 years is still a young enterprise, which will accept the challenges of the years to come with its dynamics, creativity and flexibility.
