Viessmann presented itself with an own stand at the IREKS-STAMAG Kft. trade fair in Komárom in western Hungary from August 29 to August 31, 2018.
IREKS GmbH, founded in Kulmbach in 1856 and only 30 kilometres from the Viessmann Kühlsysteme GmbH location in Hof, is internationally active in the production and sale of baking ingredients, flavours, brewing salts and ice cream ingredients. With around 2,800 employees, the family business attends to its customers, mainly bakeries and confectioneries, in around 90 countries.
At the end of the 1980s, in addition to its own branch office, a specialist and training centre for bakers and confectioners was established in Hungary, which has since then been further expanded.
This year's in-house exhibition of IREKS-STAMAG Kft. took place in Fort Monostor, an impressive fortress built between 1850 and 1871 and situated directly on the Danube river with a view of the Slovakian town of Komárom. During the trade fair, numerous factory tours and specialist lectures took place at the company headquarters in Komárom.
In the vaults of the fortress, which have been converted into a museum, an impressive process chain from cooling to baking and selling was presented to the ~500 trade visitors. Visitors included mostly bakers and confectioners from Hungary and nearby Slovakia, but also representatives of planning companies and franchise companies.
