So, have you seen our OwL flying around? The barn owl is our mascot and not only an important feature in our pictures and catalogues but in our entire public image.
Her Name is “OwL” to show how connected we feel to our home Ostwestfalen-Lippe (which coincidentally has the abbreviation “OwL”).
In the esotericism, the owl is seen as a symbol of power and is fascinating in every aspect.
Our Key Visual grew out of a project that our apprentices did. Just like the rest of our team they were thrilled about the owl from day one.
Ever since then, OwL has been our loyal companion. Through her intelligence and wise nature, she helps creating a unique characteristic for SMV.
Outstanding quality and a high level of individuality need a strong collective operating in the background. Our team is made of a variety of characters – and you can be one of them! Be it on the streets with our nationwide field service or in the office with us in Löhne. To us being at work is, at least partly, like being home. Every time you get in touch with us you’ll notice – we keep what we promise!
