1954 to 2014. From Schweisswerk Wattenscheid to STD Partners.

60 years full of history and stories …

On 26th September 2014, around 150 guests met to celebrate 60 years of company history for STD at the site of the former Henrichshütte blast furnace in Hattingen. Instead of a formal presentation of the company’s history, the character of the evening was more like of a big family get-together. After a personal greeting to all the guests, extended by Uwe Paris and Johann Reicht, Uwe Paris took the role of master of proceedings. With a mix of seriousness and humour, he used short video sequences to bring alive the way STD Partners has developed and the work it currently undertakes. Information pillars set up in the room and a sound collage with the sound of steelworks contributed to the intense impressions of the event. Memories were shared, anecdotes were told and many lengthy conversations were had. It was a thoroughly successful occasion, which many guests found all too brief and which will remain in all our memories for a long time to come.

The party took place in “Henrichs” restaurant, which is situated in the buildings of the Henrichshütte industrial museum run by the Landschaftsverband Westfalen-Lippe (LWL). STD Partners worked closely with the Henrichshütte steelworks until its closure. Nowadays, the highlights there include the oldest remaining blast furnace in the entire Ruhr district.
