Hellooooooo Watertown, The Siemon Company Turns 100

One Hundred Years and still growing, The Siemon Company is planning a banner celebration to last the whole year through

Watertown, CT — Willard Scott eat your heart out! You're not the only one who can bark out a big-old birthday greeting. The Siemon Company, a world leader in the telecommunications market, is proving that after four generations and 100 years of operation, it has only just begun to have fun.

2003 marks the centennial celebration for The Siemon Company. Started in Connecticut in 1903 by Carl F. Siemon and run today by his great-grandson Carl N. Siemon (his Grandfather and Father ran the company before him), The Siemon Company is a time capsule of 20th century principles and ideologies. It is an American dream come to reality and proof that planning, hard work and dedication are the right ingredients for success.

Now an international powerhouse in its field, The Siemon Company is planning a year- long celebration that will only end when Father Time gracefully surrenders his staff to the fresh baby new year: 2004. Throughout the year the company has a great many things in store:

  • An industry-wide celebration in January at cabling's largest trade event
  • An invitation only dignitary dinner at the company's world headquarters designed to give attendees a look into the heart of the company
  • 12 Monthly celebrations that focus on a significant event or invention during the year 1903 (The Wright Brothers first flight, Gugliemo Marconi sent the first trans-atlantic radio message, The Ford Motor Company was incorporated, The world's first western movie "The Great Train Robbery" premiered)
  • A road rally with Harley Davidson - also turning 100 in 2003
  • A gala outdoor summer party, complete with live entertainment and fireworks
  • Special promotions and much, much more

Siemon's centennial celebration is much more than a simple 100-year anniversary. The Siemon Company's growth through the last century and emergence in the 21st century as among the most respected manufacturers of telecommunications cabling systems tells the story of one family's desire, and determination to succeed despite the hardships and challenges. It is the story of a company that has over it's 100-year life-span had only four leaders; and each one of them was named Carl Siemon. It is the remarkable story of a company's unyielding commitment to it's employees, its community and its environment. It is the story today, of four-brothers working together, side-by-side, each and every day to build not just a domestic manufacturing organization, but a true global entity - one capable of delivering the same quality services in Beijing, China and Hamburg, Germany as they are in Hoboken, New Jersey or San Francisco, California.

This is the story of one family's commitment to provide not just for themselves but for the thousand of families that have been touched by Siemon throughout the years - and for future generations as well.
