Looking back on 1985, what do you remember? A 17 years old newcomer named Boris Becker won the All England Championship in Wimbledon. The Live-Aid concert with bands like Queen or David Bowie rocked the world. And Mangelberger gathered up with McDonald’s to break new ground for innovative switchboard systems. A long way down the road but still red-hot.
McDonald’s was the first company that excited us with the idea of standardization. It all started with the electrical installations for the restaurant at Schiffenberger Weg, in Hessian Gießen. The result were orders for the restaurants in Munich, Landsberg and Lindau at Lake Constance.
The recipe of success: to simplify the electronic switchboard system and controls,
so they could be duplicated and applied at all McDonald’s subsidiaries.
