Great Interest in MOLL Automatisierung GmbH

2,300 visitors attended the open house day – A new assembly hall inaugurated On Saturday, 14 September 2019, MOLL celebrated its open house day at the Leiblfing site from 10 am to 4 pm. More than 2,300 visitors used the opportunity to have a look behind the scenes of the mechanical engineering company. On Thursday and Friday before that, about 300 invited guests each came to experience a seniors’ afternoon and the successful inauguration festivities for the new 2,500 square metres large assembly hall Am Gewerbepark 2 in Leiblfing. A blessing from priest Leo Heinrich and festive speeches by guests of honour from the economy and politics gave the guests an informative day at late-summer temperatures. Many of the 250 employees took the opportunity to proudly present their workplace to their families and friends on Saturday. A round tour marked by barriers and equipped with signs made it easy for visitors to get to know all areas of the company. Most guests started out inspecting the new assembly hall, where many different machine presentations and stands from the vocational school in Straubing and MOLL company respectively were available to them. In particular the two information stands offered an opportunity to many teens and parents to talk to trainees, the people in charge and teachers from the “mechanics” area about the professions of precision mechanic (m/w/d), office management merchant (m/w/d) and technical product designer (m/w/d).

MOLL products as used by the customer

In the other halls, employees provided information about the respective machines and departments throughout the event. The “chassis installation” designed for VW Argentine was another magnet for the audience. Various examples and explanations by the employees gave them an idea of how MOLL products are used by the customers and what benefits they bring.

An image film was shown in the office building and the design work was presented with various 3D animations, layouts and technical drawings.

Bavarian Minister for Economic Affairs

The panel discussion about medium-sized enterprises with Bavarian Minister for Economic Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister Hubert Aiwanger was a clear highlight. Together with Josef Moll (managing director), Ludwig Waas (mayor of the Niederwinkling municipality) and Wolfgang Maier (former business promoter of the government of Lower Bavaria), all participants engaged in a refreshing and charming bout of verbal sparring on current political and commercial subjects related to the region.

Food, a candy booth, volleyball and electrical vehicles

Catering service Ismair from Thürnthenning provided food and drinks for the guests in its usual professional manner. The Frauenbund and Landfrauen Leiblfing supported it, standing out with their coffee and homemade cakes. Good entertainment was guaranteed as well. The offered volleyball court with its prominent visits from the pros of the NAWARO Straubing, proved to be wildly popular. A presentation of electrical vehicles by the Autohaus Vögl and Autohaus AVP drew many visitors as well, who engaged in a thorough exchange on the future of automotive manufacture. Gabys Leckereien handed out sweets to the very youngest of guests, who could let off steam in the bouncy castle. Proper folk music in the background was provided by the Kapelle Kaiserschmarrn.


We would like to thank the Frauenbund and the Landfrauen Leiblfing, the FFW Ober- und Niedersunzing, the HVO Schwimmbach, the players of NAWARO Straubing and the priest of the Leiblfing municipality, Mr Leo Heinrich, for attending and for their enormous volunteer contributions to this event’s success.
