This statement still rings true even over 100 years later. On the contrary: If we understand 'energies' as not only the physical flow of all kinds of media through our valves, but also understand it to be the efficient flow of materials and parts along the value stream in production, the flow of know-how along the product life cycle as well as the enthusiasm and creativity of SAMSON's entire workforce, the statement made in 1920 reveals the full scope of its meaning.

Today, our exceptional family business celebrates its 115th anniversary. It all began back in 1907 with the pivotal invention of the first thermostat valve. Since then, we have experienced all challenges related to evolving into an international industrial corporation. Our current workforce includes 4,500 employees in over 40 countries and at 18 production facilities. Since the foundation of the company, we have manufactured valves and systems. We have repaired equipment in the field and in our own workshops. Today, we also generate and provide data-based process intelligence. We train the next generation of professionals and spark their enthusiasm for value generation in industry. We open up unprecedented perspectives to young refugees. We invest in start-up companies or share their inspiration as part of technological collaborations. We take on economic and social responsibility because we are encouraged to do so by the three bodies of our corporation – the shareholders' assembly, the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board. We see ourselves in the role of architects of tomorrow's process industry, as inventors of new valve generations, as ambassadors of green hydrogen, as a reliable partner and responsible international employer. We think and act long term, in compliance with applicable rules and based on sound ethics. Simultaneously we take on priorities of today and challenges of tomorrow.

We thank all staff members, shareholders, partners and friends of SAMSON who have accompanied us on our 115-year-long journey for their support. Let the future begin.
