The WISKA family celebrate their centenary

18.02.2019

Ronald and Tanja Hoppmann really surprised us with a wonderful evening out for all WISKA staff on the occasion of the centenary. Cornelia Poletto's Spiegeltent was booked completely for the big centenary party! Talented artists and a tasty four-course menu really blew us away completely!

Not only colleagues from Germany came, but also colleagues from Brazil, China, India, Paraguay, Spain and the UK arrived in Hamburg to celebrate our motto "100 Years - One Team".

The highlight of the evening was the surprise concert of Glasperlenspiel. The Electropop duo played a 30-minute private concert for us at the PALAZZO. A successful surprise from the management for all of us!

With music by DJ Gerson, we danced, laughed and celebrated until the early hours of the morning.

We would like to thank Ronald and Tanja Hoppmann on behalf of the whole staff for this great evening. Also a big thank you to the team of Cornelia Poletto PALAZZO for the great show and hospitality.

Altogether they weigh 24 tons, the two new injection moulding machines, with which WISKA expands its plastic production capacities at the location in Kaltenkirchen to 33 machines.

15.06.2018

Matching scenery and best weather: Three days before the Football World Cup the first WISKA Business Cup was kicked off in Hamburg and friends and partners of the company were invited. A total of eight teams competed for the cup on this day. They kicked in style in front of the HSVVolksparkstadion. Besides the athletic ambition on the course, the fun and the common experience were in the foreground that day.

Former HSV professional and current DFB sports director Horst Hrubesch also enjoyed playing and having fun of the teams. The former player of the German national team came as a surprise guest and was enthusiastic about the mood of everyone involved.

Hrubesch, also presented the Cup to the winners of the tournament, the team of the electrical wholesaler Hillmann and Ploog. The 2nd and 3rd place went to the two teams of WISKA Germany. Top scorer of the day was Callum Wilson of Team WISKA UK. And because football fever makes them hungry, the teams went on to a Hamburg Beach Club after the tournament, where the eventful day ended with a relaxed barbecue on the Elbe.

U17 Soccer World Cup in India: WISKA keeps their fingers crossed for HSV talent Fiete Arp on Friday

12.10.2017

Great opening match by Fiete Arp at the U17 Soccer World Cup in India: With a goal and a pass, he led the German Team to a 2:1 victory against Costa Rica. What a performance! In the game on Tuesday, the team had less success and the youngsters got a 0:4 defeat by Iran. That’s why they have to fear about getting kicked out of the World Cup at their game on Friday.

„We will definitely keep our fingers crossed for the upcoming match on Friday. As well as the employees of our subsidiary in India. They also assure us of their mental support. So it can only be a good match against Guinea,“ says Ronald Hoppmann, Managing Director of WISKA as well as a big fan of the Hamburger SV (HSV) Bundesliga team.

The U17 Soccer World Cup takes place in India from 6 - 28 of October with all eyes on the young Hamburg talent Fiete Arp (17).

"Fiete Arp is a great example of what can happen if we strengthen young people and foster their talent. We are delighted that he has gained self-confidence at the HSV academy to play big on the international stage. Of course, this also involves handling defeats.“ says Ronald Hoppmann.

For the 2017/18 soccer season in Germany, WISKA is one of the first companies in the newly founded support group for HSV young talents.

"Young people need a chance to prove themselves. This is the only way of building a bridge to the future. That is why we have expanded our partnership with the HSV by supporting their youth promotion program," says Ronald Hoppmann, who is leading the WISKA company together with his sister Tanja Hoppmann, in the third generation.

Promoting young talent is important for WISKA. In addition to a comprehensive apprenticeship of the junior employees, the focus is set on self-responsible action. From internal projects to representing the company at established fairs – the young employees learn the meaning of actively shaping the company and take on responsibility.
