The jubilee event for the 40th anniversary of SIM


On 1st February passed 40 years since the founding of the SIM company by Ignacy Marek Szczypek. To celebrate such an important anniversary, jubilee party was organized with the participation of owners, employees and invited guests. The ceremony took place at Stary Maneż – a popular Gdańsk cultural center famous for arranging concerts, theatrical performances and exhibitions.


An important element of the ceremony was the speech by the head of the company, in which appeared references to the beginnings and significant stages in history of firm. After the harangue of the most important person, without whom there would be no SIM, came the time for thanks and congratulations from representatives of employees and invited guests.


At the entrance everyone was greeted with an aperitif. During the whole evening guests could count on a tasty treat – at first served by waiters to the tables and later in a form of a buffet with hot and cold dishes. One of the culinary attractions of the banquet was roasted wild boar served with cabbage and potatoes. This delicious surprise rode into the hall accompanied by music and light. The highlight of the program was a cake for 360 people decorated with logo of SIM. It is a tradition that the first piece was cut by the owners of the company – Lidia and Ignacy Szczypek.


During the jubilee event guests could hear musical hits performed by the Tricity vocalist – Maciej Miecznikowski. Famous Polish artist, together with the band, appeared on the stage several times and not only as a singer. He also helped to run a knowledge quiz about SIM. Every participant got a valuable prize.

Although only three persons could take part in the competition, the rest of the guests were supporting them by prompting and shouting the correct answers. Everyone has many laughters. Especially that in six categories there were questions not only about the date of establishment of SIM and the first headquarters of the company, information about products and customers, but also the curiosities associated with the head of the firm and his family. Now all among others knows, what is Mr Szczypek’s favorite drink, what kind of animals live in his home and what enterprise is our largest recipient and what is the furthest away country from Poland to which we send products.

Of course, there is no good party without dancing. DJ Tomasin took care of fun until late at night. That evening everyone was in a good mood, which can be seen in the pictures and the movie below.

Let’s celebrate the jubilee together one more time!
