First US Bicentennial Event

Fives celebrates its first US Bicentennial event at the International Manufacturing Technology Show 2012! The Bicentennial event took place on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, Chicago, Illinois.

Celebrating with over 100 guests, Fives Cinetic united four of its US subsidiaries; Cinetic Automation, Cinetic Landis, CITCO Tools and Gardner Abrasives. Fives Cinetic was honored with guests that included the Group's top global customers, distributors and suppliers for an evening of live music, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.

Guests were joined by the Fives executive management, while enjoying speeches from Jean-Camille Uring, Executive Board Member, Daniel Pheil, President and CEO Cinetic Landis Corp, and Michael DiMichele, President Cinetic Automation Corp. The group was also welcomed with a short historical video of Fives, which indicated the monumental achievements and future ambitions of the group. As the honorary video of the Fives 200 years of industrial progress came to a halt, the guests applauded intensely, marking yet another earmark of historical excellence.

During the many festivities of the evening Mr. Uring had the pleasure of cutting the cake to share with the spirited guests that was sculpted in honor of the Alexandre III Bridge in Paris.

Many thanks are sent to our guests, supporters and customers who have all aided the historical achievements and future endeavors of the Fives.
