STILL Celebrates 100th Birthday with More Innovation

Manufacturer
With the slogan “A History of the Future” the Hamburg intralogistics company STILL celebrates its 100th anniversary this year. On 1st February, 1920, Hans Still opened his repair shop for electric motors – it was to be the beginning of a century long success story of inventive talent, customer focus and service orientation. Beginnings to breakthrough Only a few years after being founded as a repair workshop for electric motors, STILL presented their own products, such as the “Matador light station”, at the Leipzig Fair in 1924. The development and repair of electric motors, generators and transformers remained the core business for many years. After the end of the Second World War STILL introduces an innovative electric truck to the market – the EK 2000 – and thus achieved the br

An 18-year old former drama student from Liverpool, who is now just one of three female apprentices at Linde Material Handling is determined to trailblaze the way for other women to consider a career in engineering.

The 18-year old former drama student said, “Although I’m very much a tom boy who doesn’t mind getting her hands dirty and enjoying the practical hands-on approach to learning, I’m also a girlie girl at heart which can sometimes give people the perception that I don’t fit into this very male dominated field. “When I fi
