FLEXIM celebrates its 25th birthday

28.04.2015

It all started in a ground floor apartment in Berlin's Friedrichshain district. In the spring of 1990, in the midst of a period of transition between the fall of the wall and the German reunification, four young engineers took advantage of the knowledge they acquired during their research at the Universities of Rostock and Berlin and started their own business.

"Making money wasn’t the reason for starting up", says CEO and co-founder Jens Hilpert when looking back and adding the soon found success formula: "But if we make money with it, it's not so bad after all." Today, FLEXIM is an international leader in the field of non-invasive ultrasonic flow measurement. Innovative measuring systems for process analytical applications are another important part of our portfolio. In 19 sales and support offices in Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia, we employ around 350 colleagues.

Currently, we are constructing a new, state of the art and highly sustainable headquarter in Berlin-Marzahn. For the anniversary year, a whole series of events are planned. The first highlight was the global birthday party on April 17th - the anniversary of the registration of the company in Berlin Trade Register. With the motto being "25 years FLEXIM - celebrating 25 hours" all global employees celebrated and shared the common understanding of the origin of FLEXIM’s success: Joy.
