We are very excited to share a few insights with you on our 30th company anniversary! Three decades have passed since we first opened our doors. We took this as an opportunity to look back on our journey, toast our successes, and thank the people who made this milestone possible.

A journey through time: the beginnings of Line Up

It seems like yesterday when Line Up was founded in 1992, laying the foundation for everything that followed. Back then, it was just a vision to build a strong, successful and sustainable organization with hard work, determination and the support of our dedicated staff. We set ourselves the goal of setting new standards in retail. Looking back, we can now proudly say that we have achieved this goal and continue to pursue it. We remember the challenges and opportunities we have faced along the way - each experience has shaped and strengthened us and ultimately led us to establish ourselves in the industry as a successful procurement specialist.

Success thanks to hard work, teamwork and innovation

We recognized the potential of the new procurement markets very early on and began moving our business to China as early as 1998. What is now one of the cornerstones of our work was then our entry into a completely new world. However, our 30-year journey would not have been possible without our fantastic team and the innovation they brought to the table. We are proud to have a company culture that fosters creativity and collaboration, paving the way for the future through a constant pioneering spirit and openness to integrate all available innovations into our processes. Each team member has made a unique contribution, whether through breakthrough ideas, hard work or the ability to adapt to changes in the business world. We are very grateful to our team for this. The issues of today are digitalization, automation, artificial intelligence, and also sustainability. At Line Up, we have also been working intensively on these topics over the past few years and want to make use of these technologies for ourselves and our customers.

The celebration of gratitude

To celebrate this special occasion, we held an anniversary party at the premises of our site in Mönchengladbach. Our employees, customers, business partners and friends came together to toast our successes. It was an opportunity to thank all those who have accompanied and supported us on our journey. The event was marked by warm conversations, inspiring speeches, great music and, of course, delicious food. An anniversary is also a time to be grateful and to express this gratitude. We would like to thank our long-time employees in Mönchengladbach and in China. Without your dedication, expertise and commitment, we would not be here to celebrate this anniversary. Each and every one of you has made a valuable contribution to our success. You are the heart of our company and we are proud of each of you. Another important factor in our success is our loyal customers and business partners. We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support, trust and cooperation over all these years. Your needs and satisfaction are at the heart of everything we do, and we will continue to do everything we can to provide you with high-quality products and first-class service.

Looking forward to the future

While we look back on our past, we are equally excited about what the future holds and look forward to it with full determination and passion. Our 30-year track record is just the beginning, and we are determined to continue to innovate, satisfy our customers and drive Line Up's growth. We will continue to invest in innovation, further strengthen our customer relationships and solidify our position as a trusted partner in the industry of procurement.

We say thank you for the past 30 years and look forward to an even more successful future. Cheers to what has been and to what is yet to come!
