The 3rd CabTök took place at our plant in Kecskemét on Halloween
At our plant in Kecskemét, the CabTök took place on Halloween.
“Tök” means pumpkin in Hungarian and CabTök stands for a pumpkin carving competition, which took place for the third time this year.
Our employees were able to carve and decorate pumpkins together with their families and hand them in for the award at the plant. A set-up Halloween decoration provided the right setting for the presentation of the “works of art”.
An independent jury awarded the most beautiful pumpkin, which was rewarded with a small non-cash prize.
On the adjacent pictures you can see the submitted pumpkin artworks as well as the winning pumpkin. We thank all participants for their participation and congratulate the winner.
We are very pleased about the commitment of our employees and are very happy about the lively participation.

Call for vaccination at CabTec sites
Unfortunately, the current CORONA situation is developing negatively. Exploding case numbers and hospitals reaching their capacity limits are unfortunately a reality.
Experts agree that the population’s lack of willingness to be vaccinated is a major contributor to this development.
“Booster vaccinations” help to mitigate the course of disease for each individual and thus relieve the burden on hospitals.
We are responding to the current tense situation and are calling on all employees to be vaccinated or “boostered” via a poster campaign.
Under the motto:
Join in, get vaccinated!
For you. For us. For everyone.
we are putting up themed posters at all our sites (see adjacent poster from Hungary) and calling on all colleagues to get vaccinated.

Today a wealth of ideas is in demand – for example from a CabTec partner company in the plastics segment. The result was a reusable everyday mask that is impressive and that is designed for continuous use. CabTec can also offer this externally with quantities of up to 100,000 masks per week.

CabTec supplies components for ventilators
In the CORONA pandemic, ventilators have become the most important medical device to save human lives. One of our Swiss / American customers is the market leader in the mobile ventilator segment. The increased demand for these devices is currently extremely high – fast solutions are required in order to deliver to hospitals on time.
We were asked by the company mentioned as a competent supplier of complex cabling systems and were entrusted with the delivery of cable sets for 50 times the amount of normal ventilation equipment requirements.
Our entire team, together with our supplier network, faced this battle against the clock. Components were developed, processes checked and logistics chains established. Everything under the premise of delivering high quality products within the tightest timeframe. In spite of all the haste, all finished parts are checked, because they have to function in the event of an emergency and must be stable over a longer period of time.
We managed to reduce the regular production and delivery time from 16 weeks to 2 weeks.
We and everyone involved are happy and proud to be able to make our contribution to combating the pandemic.
