Hanover, September 2014 – The high-tech company Viscom from Hanover-Badenstedt, Germany, is celebrating its thirty-year existence and on Saturday, invited visitors to an Open House Day. The company is one of the worldwide leading manufacturers of inspection systems for electronics production.
It was not only a day to get acquainted with the company, the products and the Hanover location, but also a successful family day. A huge soccer tournament, face painting for children and a Bobby car race were on the program, just as were walk acts, a raffle and live music. Physical well-being was also excellently provided for. The families of Viscom employees and interested guests from the neighborhood did not want to let this offer pass by, and spent an entertaining Saturday afternoon on the Viscom AG premises in Badenstedt.
The presentations Viscom employees had prepared for the guests, to grant them a glimpse behind the curtains of development and production of the high-tech inspection systems, were not all to met a great deal of interest. The event for the Zinnober Museum for Children in Hanover was especially welcome. This association received the entire proceeds from the sale of foods, beverages and raffle tickets as a donation.
District Mayor Brigitte Schlienkamp and Volker Pape, Executive Board of the Viscom AG, opened the event. Volker Pape reiterated that the company had developed from a 2-man operation to a globally operating concern with numerous subsidiaries. Meanwhile, Viscom has come to deliver systems and solutions for quality assurance to well-known international companies in the electronics industry. District Mayor Brigitte Schlienkamp gave special praise to the company's local engagement in Badenstedt. Among many other projects, Viscom supports the association KiWiZ e. V. in their task of enthusing children and youth for technology and the natural sciences.
It all started in 1984, when Martin Heuser and Volker Pape founded a company for industrial image processing. In 1998, international expansion with subsidiaries in the USA and Singapore took a great step forward. In May 2006, the company went public. Since then, Viscom has further broadened its presence in Europe, the USA and Asia.
This globally operating and dynamically growing high-tech company emphasizes good working conditions, flat hierarchies and an open communication climate. As example of its support for employees, the company's own day nursery is located in the immediate neighborhood and since 2009, has served children of Viscom staff members and those from the Badenstedt city district.

Naturally Viscom also offers its own apprenticeship positions, in technical careers such as IT or mechatronics as well as for industrial managers, network administrators or logistics specialists.
