50 years ago – in 1969 – the co-founder of the company, Heribert Börsig, launched the sale of electrical connectors from the manufacturer Franz Binder from Neckarsulm. Heribert Börsig made his initial sales out of his car’s trunk. In the course of the years the micro-enterprise has developed into an internationally active group of companies with two sales offices and three subsidiaries.
Since 2002 the middle-sized family business has been in the 2nd generation – Stefan Börsig has been appointed managing director by his father Heribert Börsig. The meanwhile more than 200 employees are contributing substantially to the company’s success. That’s why the annual turnover has more than doubled in the past nine years and reached55,2 million Euros in the business year 2018. Not only the turnover has doubled, but also the storage capacity has been expanded significantly. The large central warehouse in Börsig’s headquarters in Neckarsulm contains over 12.000 different articles.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary and to say thank you to the employees – without whom this success would not have been possible – the electronic distributor is going to organize an experience weekend for all employees of the Börsig company group. During this weekend the employees have the possibility to participate in various activities. In addition, there will be a festive evening event with a exciting social program.
