A traditional family get-together. An impressive response to the 15th TADANO Golf Tournament in Herzogenaurach

Lauf a. d. Pegnitz, September 2018. Exchanging ideas, increasing customer loyalty and the joy of sport were the focuses of the 15th TADAO Golf Tournament, an event which has now become a tradition and is held in Herzogenaurach in Franconia in the middle of September. In a relaxed atmosphere, the mobile crane manufacturer from Lauf an der Pegnitz informed its customers and business partners from across the world on the company’s plans for the future. At the entrance area to the 18-hole golf course and between the greens, an ATF 60G-3 and ATF 100G-4 were impressively presented so that it could be seen from afar who was visiting Herzogenaurach during the tournament days.

15 years ago for the first time, a little golf was played whilst talking shop with a mere five customers. Today, over 150 international dealers, customers from Germany, employees from subsidiaries and affiliate companies and other business partners have accepted the invitations sent out by TADANO FAUN GmbH. "Married partners who stay together for 15 years celebrate their crystal wedding anniversary. Some of you have participated in the TADANO Golf Tournament from the start. "Let’s celebrate this loyalty together", said Koichi Tadano, President of TADANO Ltd., by way of greeting to his guests the evening prior to the Golf Tournament. Previously, some of these guests had already taken part in a guided tour of the almost 160,000 m2 plant site in Lauf an der Pegnitz, where TADANO all-terrain cranes and truck-mounted cranes are developed and produced.

From year to year, the number of participants has increased, as an attractive program is also offered for non-golfers, featuring a golf beginner course, shopping, sight-seeing or spa days. The Gonzales Brothers band from Nuremburg put in a highly acclaimed appearance at this year’s golf tournament. "Anyone who participates once in the TADANO Golf Tournament, whether as an active player or in the framework programme, always wants to re-visit it the following year. Our customers are just as reliable in this regard as our products", says Rolf Sonntag, CEO of TADANO FAUN GmbH, already looking forward to the customer events to be held over the coming years.
