We are a medium-sized company, located on an industrial estate in Hemmingen near Hannover. The company was founded in 1976 by Adolf Sievers, after he had gained more than 12 years’ experience in all areas of the license plate industry – from planning and techniques through to manufacturing, sales and distribution. In 1979, the existing company was expanded and branched out into other manufacturing segments.
At the same time, the decision was taken to relocate all manufacturing operations to Hannover. Four years later in 1983, manufacturing operations had to be relocated again due to continued growth. A larger production facility was leased in the south of Hannover.
Today, the company is headed by Jörg Sievers and Senior Executives Peter Böttjer and Hans-Peter Werse. The company’s founder, Adolf Sievers, continues to help both in words and deeds, and supports the company on important issues.
In the following years, the company further expanded production operations by constructing its own printing facilities and adding new services to its portfolio. The company’s workforce grew steadily in the course of these developments.
In 1997, the company completed the purchase of premises on the new industrial estate in Hemmingen, while also building a new, modern production hall. The relocation from the old production site to the new production hall was also completed the same year. In the years that followed, the production hall and the office complex were expanded on several occasions, in order to cope with growing demand.
In addition, A. Sievers GmbH has increasingly invested in environmental protection. As a result, in 2012 all light fittings were replaced with energy-saving LED technology, and in 2014 a photovoltaic system was installed on the roof of the production hall. This enabled the company itself to produce around 30% of the electricity required, which otherwise would have to be purchased externally. During construction of the office, an effort was made to reduce heating and gas consumption.
We consider ourselves to be an independent, pioneering family business, which also meets its obligations to customers, employees and society as a whole in equal measure. Since 1999, we have held the DIN/ISO 9001 quality certification, which documents the high quality of the products we manufacture and the services we provide.
