Congratulations to Vincenzo Luppino at the Bologna/Italy Branch

Italian Geologist is Thousandth Employee at International WESSLING Group

Bologna/ Altenberge. Even an Italian was lost for words: WESSLING Group’s managing directors, Jens Müller and Dr Stephan Simon, left everyone flabbergasted at the Bologna branch on congratulating Vincenzo Luppino: the 32-year-old geologist is WESSLING’s 1000th employee.

At the company’s headquarters in Altenberge everyone had excitedly awaited the magical number 1000 to be reached and at which branch this would be. Due to the company’s dynamic growth, after all there had been 30 possibilities. WESSLING Group operates in eight European countries – France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Romania, Russia – as well as Morocco in Northern Africa, and China. Vincenzo Luppino is an expert in environmental protection and environmental management issues concerning soil, water, waste

and energy. After finishing his studies in Sienna, he had worked for an oil company for five years where he primarily managed brownfield redevelopment and remediation projects.

However, he had to say “arriverderci” to his friends in Rimini, where he had lived so far, as he moved near the Bologna WESSLING branch. “I’m very glad despite the move, for I’m very much looking forward to working for WESSLING. And it’s good for me personally to live in a new city, make new contacts and find success,” says Vincenzo Luppino, who took up work at WESSLING three months ago. “At first I thought it would be difficult at such a large company with people speaking so many different languages. But no matter where I called – Hungary, Poland, or France – all colleagues have been really cooperative and friendly.”

This of course also delighted the managing directors of the international company group: ”When someone tells us that people live in accord with our corporate culture and values even across country borders, we’re on the right track. Being skilled is mandatory but for complex tasks interdisciplinary and often international teams are at least as important.

And they work that well at WESSLING, because everyone here has respect for the diversity of cultures and esteem on the part of every individual person”, state Jens Müller and Dr Stephan Simon. The Italian colleague is soon going to get to know German culture - in the heart of Westphalia, near the company’s headquarters. The managing directors invited Vincenzo Luppino for a weekend in Münster.

About the company:

The Westphalian family enterprise has grown and evolved to become an internally operating corporation with 1000 employees. The experts at WESSLING Group work at over 30 branches across Europe as well as in China and Morocco on improving quality, safety, health and environmental protection.

In 1983 Dr Erwin Weßling laid the foundations for the corporate group of today with headquarters in Altenberge. The know-how of the company’s accredited laboratories, their engineers and experts is internationally requested for implementing economic and ecologic solutions.
