Gillion celebrates 2019 with its staff
As usual at the end of each year, Gillion brings its staff together for a winter barbecue. An opportunity to celebrate the past year and look to the future. This year, the festivities will take place at the Kontich headquarters.
2019 was a special year for Gillion. Not only did the construction company celebrate its 100th anniversary (yes, that’s right!), but it also underwent a complete makeover by entirely revamping its brand. It is at that anniversary party that employees have shown their new worksite jackets bearing the new logo.
We mustn’t forget that 2019 was a year of many successes for the company. Gillion rose to the challenge at Pairi Daiza, Europe’s largest animal park. A new World, the Last Frontier, was built adhering to a strict deadline to ensure that the new part of the park could open at the start of the season. Mission accomplished!
At 100 years of age, the Gillion company appears to be outstandingly youthful. It won the Trends Gazelles trophy in January and a victory at the Green Solutions Awards. At the opening of the Batimat Trade Fair in Paris, Gillion received the Health & Comfort prize for innovation at the IBGE forestry brigade site in the Sonian Forest.
As a family business, keenly run by the fourth generation, Gillion is committed to continuous improvement while maintaining a human scale. Whether for colossal sites or smaller missions, the objectives for 2020 are unchanged: listen to customers, innovate, be efficient and respect the environment while considering energy performance and the reuse of materials. 2019 was yet another springboard year. Gillion intends to celebrate it with those that make it all possible.
