In 2023 PLATH once again held Social Days as part of our corporate social responsibility activities, with which we want to make a voluntary contribution to improving conditions in our neighborhood. Back in the summer, PLATH took part in the "Klar Schiff" campaign and collected garbage from public areas in the Hammerbrook district, where our company headquarters are located. The city cleaning campaign "Klar Schiff" is carried out every year by Stadtreinigung Hamburg together with its partners - and has been for 25 years. The PLATH teams made sure that 25 bags of garbage were collected in the immediate neighborhood - and this included everything from fixer-upper cutlery to broken bicycle locks with matching side cutters

New PLATH AG offices officially opened

The new offices of PLATH AG have recently been officially opened. As part of the opening ceremony, COO Franz Gumpitsch and Martin Lanz, Director ECM, addressed a few words to the guests in attendance. After a brief excursion into the history of PLATH AG, the speeches focussed on the present, in which PLATH AG is a valuable part of the System and Integration business division within the PLATH Group and as such contributes various strengths. PLATH AG is a complete solution provider (one-stop shop) for all of the Group's products and can therefore draw on the powerful and precise sensor technology and software from the PLATH Group. Coupled with a high level of customer orientation through customised and flexible solutions and services, PLATH AG is a strong partner for all technologies and services, especially those that are not in the portfolio of other companies in the Group. Before the glasses were raised once again to the new PLATH AG site, these strengths were visualised by the screening of the new PLATH Group image film.
