100. years Hempel Germany

Hempel celebrates its 100th company jubilee

Just 21 years old was Jørgen Christian Hempel when he started producing ship paints in Copenhagen. With more than 5,200 employees in over 80 countries on 5 continents, Hempel is one hundred years later one of the largest coating manufacturers in the world.

With an event for its customers in the Elb-Panorama and an event for the employees in the former main customs office in Hamburg, Hempel Germany also celebrated the company’s anniversary.

My task as an event photographer was to capture the positive atmosphere of the company celebration in authentic photos. Silently and reservedly I documented the two events. The photos were then shown to customers and employees as a reminder of the sunny day.
