AGP Stammtisch

Join us for our monthly AGP "Stammtisch" TONIGHT:

Tuesday, June 4
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
Brät Brot, Birmingham

What does "Stammtisch" mean? A Stammtisch is an informal group meeting held on a regular basis, and also the usually large table around which the group meets. A Stammtisch is not a structured meeting, but rather a friendly and casual get-together.

This is a great opportunity for German expats to meet and for other German speaking/practicing to improve your German. Speaking German is encouraged but not required. We meet every first Tuesday of the month. REGISTER HERE!

German supplier encourages high-tech research, training and a family atmosphere at its Southern US facility
by Gail Allyn Short, Southern Automotive Alliance

It happened nearly 100 years ago.

That is when August Pausch, a technician, and Hans Rausch, a businessman, in 1920 founded a small manufacturing firm in Germany to make fuse inserts for electrical circuits.  The Rausch & Pausch Co., grew, and with the growth came changes to its product line. In the 1950s, the company started manufacturing relays for washing machines and television sets. A decade later in the late 1960s, Rausch & Pausch began developing and producing magnetic valves for oil-firing devices.
