Christmas Party at the 7th of December 2018 in Langeselbold

On Friday, the 7th December 2018 it was time again and the Christmas party started at 6 pm with the welcome by Albrecht Sieper, the director of Elementar, and a champagne reception with finger food starters in the foyer of the Elementar Germany headquarters. Altogether 93 colleagues were there, including a few pensioners. Although there was no snow and it was quite mild and stormy, it did not dampen the mood.

After the welcome and in a cozy atmosphere, Mr. Albrecht Sieper first gave a review of the year, honoured the colleagues who celebrated an anniversary and introduced the new employees before the buffet was opened. Beside Argentinian roast beef from the cutting board, goose breast, cranberry red cabbage, much more was offered, so that everybody could find something delicious to eat. It was extensively feasted.

Great entertainment was provided by the performance of “JackBerger” with a small but very fine guitar concert. Thank you to the two colleagues!

The conclusion was the dessert with cinnamon mouse, fresh fruit salad and freshly baked crepes.

All in all, the Christmas party was a complete success and it is rumored that the last ones had gone home around two o’clock…

Season's Greetings 2017

2017 Season’s Greetings

Dear all,

After the relocation to Langenselbold last year, we were able to settle in our new headquarters. The new work flows are well-known and we are now able to benefit from the way better processes the new building enables us.

In 2017 we were happy that we are now able to welcome and serve a higher amount of guests. Beside different meetings and trainings, we got three big User Meetings for IRMS, elemental analysis and TOC customers. Of course, not only Elementar Germany held nice User Meetings – of course our subsidiaries were very busy and successful, too!

I could talk a lot about other achievements and highlights of Elementar this year – but its year end, so I briefly sum it up: It was a great year! We hope that 2018 will be as successful as 2017 for Elementar and all of you. Have a peaceful holiday season and a prosperous new year!

Chinese New Year 2017

Happy Chinese New Year 2017!

Tomorrow, on 28 January, it is the Chinese New Year and the start of the year of the fire rooster. We wish all of our Chinese colleagues and everybody who is celebrating the New Year today a good time with family and friends! It is also called the spring festival and it is not only a Chinese holiday. It is an important event for ca. 1/5 of the world’s population – also Indonesia, Vietnam, Korea, Malaysia, Brunei, Singapore and the Philippines celebrate it!

Because of that, we created a little riddle for the spring festival, too. You could find it here: Chinese New Year Riddle. Have fun solving the riddle!

The Yuan coin was completely analyzed by the inductar® EL cube from our new inductar Series for inorganic materials. The analysis of red envelope, rice wine and black powder was done by two of our instruments for the analysis of organic substances:

Additionally we collected some impressions from the making of for you:

2016 seasons greetings

2016 Season’s Greetings

Dear all,

2016 was a thrilling year for us – we achieved some big changes within Elementar. We were able to welcome a lot of new colleagues due to the increased capacity in Germany and the establishment of new subsidiaries. One of the biggest changes for the German employees is the relocation to Langenselbold. After only 14 months of building period, we operate since September from the new headquarters.

We hope that 2017 will be as successful as 2016 for everybody of us. Have a peaceful holiday season and a prosperous new year!

Christmas Tree

Elementar Christmas Riddle 2016

It’s Christmas time and we are preparing for the holidays. Have you already set up your Christmas tree? Do you prefer the natural or synthetic version of a Chrismas tree?

While discussing this topic, we have analyzed several needles from conifers with our elemental analyzers and prepared a short Christmas Riddle for you:
Can you guess from the elemental compositions in the table which tree is not “natural” and can be reused for Xmas 2017 without loss of needles?
