Mecklenburger Metallguss (MMG) has been manufacturing ship propellers at its company site in Waren an der Müritz for 75 years now. The propulsion manufacturer has now celebrated this anniversary in Hamburg.

Numerous business partners and friends accepted MMG’s invitation to the International Maritime Museum Hamburg (IMMH) on Tuesday. They were welcomed by Managing Director Lars Greitsch.

What began with raw cast propellers, which initially went to the Soviet Union where they were finally finished, developed over the years into a global company. Today, MMG propellers can be found on all seas, for example in the fleet of MSC – currently the largest container shipping company in the world. As a loyal and long-standing customer, Giuseppe Gargiulo, Head of Newbuildings at the Italian shipping company, also gave a speech.

MSC and MMG have a long-standing relationship

In his presentation, Giuseppe Gargiulo spoke about the business relationship between MSC and the propeller manufacturer, which has lasted for over 20 years. He praised the precision of the propellers, which not only ensure safe ship operation but also lower CO2 emissions.

After Gargiulo’s words, Lars Greitsch, museum director Peter Tamm and author Markus Krall presented a new book that was published to mark the 75th anniversary. The richly illustrated book tells the exciting story of Mecklenburger Metallguss.

After company boss Greitsch had thanked his entire team, the evening moved on to the more relaxed part. The anniversary was duly celebrated with delicious food, drinks and live music.
