In Austria, when it comes to school exercise books, drawing pads or spiral-bound notebooks, Format Werk is right at the heart of things. In a festive setting, “at home” in the production facility in Gunskirchen, Austria’s largest producer of exercise books and pads celebrated its 40th anniversary in June of this year.
The “Pichler Voigasplattler” had been engaged to provide the entertainment and they spontaneously arranged a crash course in “Schuhplatteln” (a folk dance involving the slapping of knees and heels) for some willing colleagues. The audience were also treated to a surprise appearance by comedian Thomas Stipsits who presented a programme full of ironic wit. The evening was rounded off by entertainment provided by the management team, some video clips and a “guess the amount” competition, and by the end everyone agreed: Format Werk’s 50th birthday party is an event to be looked forward to.
