"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.

The­se are ques­ti­ons that some of the atten­de­es at the Design Thin­king work­shop at the Klasmann-Deilmann Inno­va­ti­on Cen­ter in Geeste undoub­ted­ly asked them­sel­ves.

Klasmann-Deilmann dona­tes 1,000 euros A company’s respon­si­bi­li­ties extend to the wider com­mu­ni­ty. This is why Klasmann-Deilmann sup­ports cha­ri­ta­ble and cul­tu­ral pro­jects, and spon­sors local sport groups. In Lit­hua­nia, Klasmann-Deilmann han­ded over a che­que for 1,000 euros to the ‘Šaltinė­lis’ children’s home in Tau­ra­ge.

Inclu­ded in Skal list Thanks to its bio­de­grad­able struc­tu­re, our Grow­coon pro­pa­ga­ti­on sys­tem is an inte­res­ting opti­on for orga­nic busi­nes­ses. The Grow­coon has now been inclu­ded in the Dutch Skal list, which means that an inde­pen­dent cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on body has con­fir­med that the use of Grow­coons is per­mis­si­ble in Skal-cer­­ti­­fied orga­nic farms in the Nether­lands. The Grow­coon is a bio­de­grad­able plug with a fle­xi­ble, open struc­tu­re. When used in pro­pa­ga­ti­on sys­tems, the Grow­coon holds the pro­pa­ga­ti­on sub­stra­te toge­ther and this com­bi­na­ti­on forms a sta­ble Read more
