DAY 2023

A brilliant day of exchange and recognition: our Supplier Day delighted 180 participants with a great location, organization, moderation, food and inspiring discussions. From MAXIM purchasing to site development and research and development to sustainability – the MAXIM speakers shared exciting insights. An event full of positive energy and promising prospects for the future!


The foundations for success had already been laid the evening before, when suppliers and company representatives met to exchange ideas. This informal gathering created the perfect opportunity to get to know each other better and exchange ideas.

On November 7, our event started punctually at 9.15 a.m. at Bauwerk Köln – moderated by an incredibly good, confident Melina Wemmer.

The event was kicked off by Janine Kops and our founder and CEO Dr. Giesen, who welcomed our partners with a personal greeting, followed by a rousing presentation by Mr. Martin from dm. Christina reported on the exciting topic of location development, while Martina delved into the world of sustainability. Baris and Katrin gave interesting insights into their department, Purchasing. Sabine Graf inspired the audience with her presentation on research and development in Pulheim, while Marius Groß shed light on the topic of research and development at Elysee.

The highlight of the day was undoubtedly the awards presented to four particularly outstanding suppliers. A well-deserved recognition for their outstanding cooperation and their contribution to our joint success.

Our Managing Director Magarete Krupa concluded the event with her closing remarks and outlook. She not only looked back on the successful event, but also gave a motivating outlook for the future.

A very big THANK YOU at this point to everyone who contributed to this day! We received a lot of enthusiastic feedback from our suppliers and can proudly say that the Supplier Day 2023 was not only a place of exchange and appreciation, but also a meeting place for forward-looking ideas and joint growth. We look forward to the upcoming projects and the continuation of these successful partnerships!
