"We seek dialogue with you."

Our com­pa­ny is always on the move.

The blog is undoub­ted­ly among the most con­ve­ni­ent forms of modern com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on. At Klasmann-Deilmann, we use our blog to sha­re our thoughts with our part­ners and fri­ends; custo­mers and sup­pliers; our active, for­mer and future employees; and (in the broa­dest sen­se) our sta­ke­hol­ders – in a time­ly man­ner and at an appro­pria­te inten­si­ty. And we’ve a lot to say. Our com­pa­ny is always on the move and we want you to be a part of this.

We look for­ward to your feed­back: do send us an e-mail or use our com­ments func­tion. We’ll also be gra­te­ful for any ide­as as to topics you’d be inte­rested in rea­ding about.
