All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

Although some of our employees were sad to hear the news, FERMAT has closed the curtains and locked the doors in observance of today’s state holiday, Liberation Day, commemorated on May 8th, also known as VE Day (Victory in Europe Day).  No doubt most of our employees would rather be at work, helping build a better future one outstanding FERMAT machine tool at a time; however, they can find some solace in the fact that they will be allowed to return to the factory tomorrow, bright and early, Wednesday, May 9th.

So, fear not, all this celebrating and fanfare will be out of the way soon enough. In the meantime, fire up the grill and tap the keg, and enjoy yourself mightily with family and friends.
