60 years | The Event

Friday, June 27, 2014, bright sunshine and blue skies. The punker event management team had really thought of everything. There had been a lot of speculation as to what was going on in the past weeks, but the event team succeeded in keeping the secret of this company outing to the very last second. To start the outing the employees were bussed to an unknown destination, after 15 minutes we arrived at the harbor in Eckernförde.


Two beautiful three master sailing ships were anchored majestically at the pier, ready for a sailing trip to the Kiel Sailing Week Festival! Everyone was thrilled about this exciting anniversary outing.
While on the ships, a wonderful crew along with exceptional catering made this the perfect voyage. Sunshine, wind and rain did not prevent anyone from hoisting or striking the sails.
After reaching the former Olympic Harbor Schilksee, speed boats delivered us to the coast, where we were greeted by the reception team in the Sailors Lounge with sparkling wine and soft drinks. We were then treated to a beautiful dinner that was truly a culinary delight.
Around midnight, we arrived by bus back home in Eckernförde.


What an unforgettable day!

60 years | A Success Story

When Hans Flensfeldt founded his company PUNKER Equipment and Heating Technology on April 1, 1954 in Eckernförde (Schleswig-Holstein), he laid the foundation for a true success story.  Since then, punker has become a worldwide leading specialist and pioneer for the development and production of aluminum and steel forward curved wheels, cross flow wheels and backward curved wheels. Each year approximately 5 million fan wheels leave our production facilities.
We credit our success to the high quality of our products, a sophisticated fan geometry, manufacturing flexibility and an abundance of skilled technical knowledge. This success would not be possible without our highly motivated and dedicated team of 330 employees worldwide.

The punker team is looking forward to the next 60 years!
