Saving many lives together
A joint blood donation campaign was organised together with two other companies from Lahr.
The German Red Cross blood donation campaign was a great success and a large number of employees participated. We are aware that anyone can be affected by an emergency – at any time! As a company, we therefore wish to encourage our employees to support others.
So we are planning further blood donation campaigns during which our committed employees can donate blood during working hours.
The job information fair in Offenburg. We are on.

We take part in Girls Day - the future day for girls!
What is Girls’ Day? Girls’ Day is a career orientation day that is held annually. All girls* from fifth grade onwards may participate.
This year’s Girls’ Day will take place on Thursday, 27 April 2023.
The event allows participants to become acquainted with the everyday life of a toolmaker at POLAR-FORM Werkzeugbau GmbH.
They may, of course, also perform some manual work, but are not obliged to do so. They are also welcome to take the results of their work home with them.
We are pleased to support young people on their career orientation path and look forward to meeting the Girls’ Day participants!
*We consider you as a girl if YOU feel like a girl."

Award for “Volunteer-Friendly Employer for Civil Protection”
On January 19, thirty three companies in Baden-Württemberg received the “Volunteer-Friendly Employer for Civil Protection” award. Thanks to the voluntary work undertaken by some employees, POLAR-FORM is one of the companies that honoured to accept this award.
In the area of civil protection in particular, volunteers play an important role when it comes to providing rapid assistance. We would therefore like to thank our employees for volunteering and will continue to support them in their voluntary work for civil protection.
Christmas is just around the corner and an eventful year is drawing to a close. We started the year 2022 with the hope of overcoming the many challenges of the Covid pandemic. While this has not fully materialised, the situation has improved. The year 2022 brought more big challenges, albeit different ones.
Christmas is traditionally a time of reflection and joy. A time of peace and compassion, and especially a time of gratitude.
We are grateful…
…for your loyalty!
…for your trust!
…for our good working relationship!
Together, with YOU, our customers, business partners and employees, we have made the year a success.
Let's bring the year 2022 to a quiet close and let's continue to work hard and remain optimistic in 2023.
Use this time to pause and reflect, and to escape the stresses of daily life. Enjoy some peaceful and relaxing moments with your loved ones.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a New Year full of health, happiness and joy.
We are incredibly proud of our former apprentices, Mirco and Michael. By passing their final examinations, they have successfully completed their vocational training as tool mechanics. The German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Industrie- und Handelskammer – IHK) awarded Michael and Mirco a prize for their excellent achievements during training and in their final exams in particular.
Both Mirco and Michael will remain in our employment as part of our team of skilled workers. Colleagues and management look forward to many years together and wish the boys all the best for the future.
Summer, sun, summer festival
Brilliant sunshine, cold drinks and a great atmosphere... everything you could wish for in a summer festival!
The pandemic caused recent summer festivals to either be cancelled completely or held on just a small scale. However, such gatherings are important events that allow POLAR-FORM staff to mix socially in a relaxed atmosphere.
We wanted to celebrate together once again this year. Our managing directors, Mr. Johannes Pollaert and Mr. Dieter Göppert, welcomed all POLAR-FORM employees and had also invited some retired former staff. The “Schwarzwald Burger” food truck provided culinary delights and the beer truck offered chilled drinks. Ice cream, cakes and delicious cocktails were also available. Some of the smaller visitors were even allowed to sit on the forklift. It was a really SUPER atmosphere!
Everyone left the summer festival with a smile on their face, looking forward to the upcoming company anniversary. Next year, POLAR-FORM Werkzeugbau GmbH will celebrate its 30th year of operations.
Corporate challenge race 2022 – the POLAR-FORM_Team was there
It was GREAT! Really good fun was had by all in a fantastic, relaxed atmosphere with radiant faces all round!
1,150 runners from nearly 90 companies participated in this year’s corporate challenge race. After tackling the 5 km course together they partied to LIVE music in the Seepark recreational lake area.
Team POLAR-FORM was there. It did us the world of good after a two-year pandemic-induced break and we were able to recharge a huge amount of collective energy. We are already looking forward to the next corporate challenge race.
POLAR-FORM at K 2022 in Düsseldorf!
It is with optimism that we look forward to that time in October and we have duly registered to be an exhibitor at K 2022, the leading trade fair for the plastics and rubber industry.
We look forward to welcoming you at our stand number C61 in Hall 01 from the 19th to the 26th October and being able to show you our latest innovations.
Do you have a new project? Bring it with you.
We would be pleased to advise you in the search for solutions and await your questions with excitement.
For the second year in a row we have experienced a year that has been demanding for all of us in many respects, both in business and in our private lives. We had to learn to deal with restrictions. Familiar habits and human closeness were suddenly no longer a matter of course. This took many of us to our limits.
So, what better occasion than Christmas to say thank you for all the good things you did last year?
We would like to say thank you to all our customers, business partners and employees for your loyalty and the trust you have once again placed in us over the past year. Through our combined strength, we have mastered all of the challenges and made the best out of the situation.
From the bottom of our hearts, we wish you a wonderful holiday season and a joyous celebration with your loved ones.
This crisis has shown us the importance of health.
So, we wish you above all good health and great optimism for the coming year.
Many vaccination centres and general practitioners are at full capacity regarding an appointment for the COVID19 vaccination. That is why we at POLAR-FORM Werkzeugbau GmbH would like to support our employees and, with the help of a company doctor, have offered persons who are interested the opportunity to make an appointment for the first vaccination on 21 June 2021.
"The health of our employees is very important to us!" says Dieter Göppert, Managing Director, and assures that the date for the second vaccination is already fixed.
Mr Dieter Göppert is one of the lectures on the DIF
DIF (Deutsches Industrieforum für Technologie [German Industry Forum for Technology]) is offering an advanced course in plastic construction for injection-moulded parts and plastic components running from 22 March to 9 June 2021.
Mr Dieter Göppert, POLAR-FORM – Managing Director, is one of the lecturers and is pleased to be sharing his expert knowledge with DIF.
“We are hoping that many people will sign up as it will be a really interesting course,” explains Dieter Göppert.

INJECTION MOULD FOR HIGH-TECH MASKS
The high-quality and long-lasting masks made from flexible LSR and PP were developed at the request of Arburg from Lossburg in Germany and in cooperation with several partners. One of the partners, POLAR-FORM, built and supplied the special injection mould for the LSR component in a record time of around just five weeks.
Normally, it would take almost six months to progress from an initial design to a finished product. However, time was in short supply at the end of March and the situation called for urgent solutions. The masks, which fit over the nose and mouth and are made from LSR (liquid silicone rubber) and PP (polypropylene), have been in production since 11th May. The aim is to mass-produce around 3,500 of these multifunctional high-tech masks every day.
Masks to be donated to facilities
The finished marks will be donated to facilities that urgently need them. POLAR-FORM wants to support care workers and staff at the hospital in the Ortenau district to thank them for their dedication and hard work. These masks will provide reliable protection and are more comfortable to wear than disposable or fabric masks. LINK:
