Outstanding trainee development
The Hagen branch of the German Federal Agency of Employment has awarded J.D. Neuhaus the Agency’s “Certificate of Trainee Development”. This certificate is presented to companies who have made special efforts in the training of young people. “In a time of great demand for skilled personnel, Neuhaus has committed itself in exemplary fashion to the training of young people. Every year, the company offers a number of traineeships in a variety of disciplines.Their quality and continuity speak for themselves.
The company is involved in several co-operations with schools and participates in numerous projects and initiatives for the vocational orientation of young people. With these activities, the global market leader in its product segment supports young people in realising their professional goals,” says Thomas Helm, Chairman of the Managing Board of the Hagen Agency of Employment.
For Wilfried Neuhaus-Galladé, Managing Director of J.D. Neuhaus GmbH & Co. KG, companies can only be successful in the long term if they succeed in recruiting young people, training them into skilled employees and retaining their services. Training is therefore valued highly at JDN as perhaps the most important investment of all in the future.
New hall for torch-cutting and welding technology
A further milestone in JDN‘s history
At the beginning of August, production began in the new hall, which was completed in July. The highlight here is an extremely high-performance oxy/plasma torch cutting machine with a bore milling facility and automatic slag disposal (less downtime), which impresses with its high output capability. Furthermore, ergonomic welding stations featuring state-of-the-art extraction technology are also located in the 700 m² hall. Energysaving LED lighting also contributes to protecting the environment. The hall is equipped with two crane systems with a load-bearing capacity of 5 and 10 tonnes, which are integrated in the in-house logistics system. With the construction of the new hall, space capacities of the dispatch and incoming goods areas can now also be expanded. For Managing Director Wilfried Neuhaus-Galladé, all these measures represent a further investment in the future in order to serve markets even more promptly, while also maintaining capacity on hand for further markets and customers.
JDN and the Las Vegas High Roller Observation Wheel
Entertainment is redefining the iconic Las Vegas skyline with The LINQ, an open-air retail, dining, and entertainment district, anchored by the world’s tallest observation wheel, known as the High Roller. Topping out at 550 feet, the High Roller will eclipse both the London Eye and Singapore Flyer. The wheel will feature 28 glass-enclosed cabins that will unveil broad views of the famed resort city in the 30 minutes it takes to complete one full revolution. The construction is under way using three J.D. Neuhaus 50 tonne Profi Series air hoists to position each of the temporary 40 tonne radial struts (“spokes”) into place. With the aid of these radial struts they can get the big round metal piece formed to a perfect circle. Once that is done they will start stringing from the hub to the axle to act like spokes. The temporary struts will then be removed. The LINQ is scheduled to make its debut in late 2013.
