Exhibition "EMS-CHEMIE - an incredible story" is extended until the end of 2016
Since its opening at the beginning of 2011, more than 17,800 people have visited the EMS-CHEMIE exhibition and interest remains high. For this reason, EMS-CHEMIE has decided to extend the exhibition.
At the end of January 2011 the imposing exhibition was opened at the production site in Domat/Ems on the occasion of the 75-year anniversary of EMS-CHEMIE. Since then the exhibition has been open free of charge with guided tours for registered groups and more than 17,800 enthusiastic visitors have taken advantage of this offer. Due to the continuing interest shown by companies, clubs, associations, school classes, authorities and other groups from throughout Switzerland, the exhibition has been provisionally extended to run until the end of 2016.
This unique exhibition shows in an impressive way for both young and old, experts and lay people, the eventful history of this traditional company located in the Grisons area of the Swiss alps: How did the manufacturer of "Emser Water" (substitute fuel made from waste timber) during the second world war develop into an international company producing high-performance plastics? Around 140 photographs, more than 300 historic documents, requisites and plant components as well as more than 600 examples of products and applications from all periods of the company's history let this exciting episode in Swiss economic history be experienced over an area of 1400 m2!
The exhibition is open to registered groups. Long-serving previous employees act as guides for the groups answering questions and recounting an anecdote or two.
We look forward to your visit!
