The story of your company is unique and exciting. It will recall the difficulties and challenges, the obstacles encountered and overcome as well as the lessons learnt and the subsequent successes. Preserved between two covers of a book, it is a living testament to your achievements and those of your employees.
When we write your company history, it will be more than a collection of data and facts, far more than a dull chronology that no one would wish to read nowadays. It will become a piece of literature.
Like the Brothers Grimm, we collect stories that reveal the complex world of a company’s development. The company histories we write document the distinctive character of your company. These stories reinforce a sense of company identity for your employees– both now and into the future.
It is interesting for your customers to know how your company evolved. In this way, your company history becomes a long lasting marketing tool: »Tell me your story and you will conquer my heart.«
A future needs a past: given the fast pace of life today, the printed book represents solid values, tradition and dependability. A book is timeless and can be read anywhere and, above all, does not require any video or website technology.
A company history, when set down on paper, can make know-how available across the generations – authentically, credibly and convincingly. Attractive as a story and filled with factual information, it conveys the richness of your experiences which could otherwise be lost for ever.
Preserving history – Shaping the Future
Whether failures from which lessons were learned or successes which were later built upon: No matter what, the challenges and great moments of a company’s existence are worth recounting, preserving and sharing with others. A company’s past is a valuable source of knowledge for all those who want to preserve traditions and look ahead.
We can write your company biography in English and German. To date, Rohnstock has written over 500 biographies, including the company history of the the water filter manufacturer BRITA, the cheese manufacturer Hochland and the International Down and Feather Bureau.
