To mark the 125th anniversary of the Bremen dental specialist BEGO, on the 26th of June 2015 guests from industry and politics together with customers and suppliers were invited to a reception in the upper town hall room. The event got underway with a welcome address and included official speeches, and music was provided by the Bremen German Chamber Philharmonic’s Future Lab. At the end of the celebrations, the approximately 350 guests were given the opportunity to visit the headquarters of this long-standing medium-sized family company.  

For the owner-managed family company BEGO, which is now in its fifth generation, 2015 marks 125 years of dental history. To honour this milestone, the company invited guests to a reception in the Upper Hall of Bremen’s Town Hall. Customers, partners and friends of BEGO from across Germany took up this invitation, and some guests even travelled from as far as Japan. Christoph Weiss, Managing Partner of the BEGO Group, in his welcoming speech: “Initially, I wanted to talk today about entrepreneurial freedom, courage and values, as this would have fitted well with our 125th anniversary and would also have provided an interesting look back at the company’s history. But instead I would prefer to look ahead to what’s still in store for us”.

Prof. Dr. Heiner Weber, Medical Director at the Policlinic for Dental Prosthetics with Propaedeutics and Section “Medical Materials and Technology” in Tübingen, Germany, spoke a few words of greeting to those present. “I first came into contact with BEGO in the early 1970s when non-precious alloys were launched onto the market as an alternative to expensive precious-metal alloys, and, for me, these offered an excellent treatment solution. Even back then I experienced BEGO to be a highly competent and reliable partner who is able to reach quick decisions”, recalled Prof. Weber. The official speech with the title “The miracle of innovation – turbulent times require creative minds” was given by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hans-Jörg Bullinger, member of the Fraunhofer Senate and former President of the Fraunhofer Society, Stuttgart, Germany….
