Coveted admission tickets to the “home from home”
When factory ID cards were not yet plastic cards
Historical company identity cards tell us a lot. For example, that Wieland attached early on importance to the clear identification of its employees for reasons of security and secrecy. It’s no coincidence that there is a reference on the back of the ID card to the fact that any misuse would lead to „criminal prosecution“. In addition, the documents – embedded into a robust metal frame – clearly embodied the belonging to the Wieland family, creating identification and pride. Many families still keep their parents’ or grandparents’ identity cards safe.
