"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.

10.12.2018 | Aut­hor: Kim Karotki | 0 Comments
In-house inst­ruc­tion for voca­tio­nal trai­nees Dual voca­tio­nal trai­ning invol­ves inter­play bet­ween theo­ry and prac­tice. Klasmann-Deilmann’s trai­nees spend some of their time on day release at voca­tio­nal school and the rest in the work­place. To explo­re sub­ject mat­ter in grea­ter depth and pro­vi­de insights into unknown are­as, they also recei­ve in-house tea­ching ‑ and the­se clas­ses have been pro­vi­ded for more than 20 years. In a glo­bal com­pa­ny, the­re is much to dis­co­ver. So that our trai­nees obtain as broad an over­view as pos­si­ble, Read more

26.11.2018 | Aut­hor: Kim Karotki | 0 Comments
A fifth pro­duc­tion site gets wood­chip hea­ting Being a rene­wa­ble resour­ce, wood is a popu­lar fuel for sustainab­le hea­ting. Klasmann-Deilmann has now repla­ced sys­tems based on fos­sil fuels such as oil and gas with wood­chip hea­ting at a total of five pro­duc­tion loca­ti­ons. The wood­chip hea­ting faci­li­ty at Gees­te has now been in ope­ra­ti­on sin­ce Decem­ber 2017. A com­plex dis­tri­bu­ti­on sys­tem is necessa­ry to meet the dif­fe­rent hea­ting requi­re­ments of two lar­ge admi­nis­tra­ti­ve buil­dings, the expe­ri­men­tal green­house and a hall housing our phy­sics labo­ra­to­ry.

School pupils enjoy busi­ness role­play game What decisi­ons do mana­gers have to take on a dai­ly basis, and why? For a week, pupils at the Win­d­­thorst-Gym­­na­­si­um secon­da­ry school in Mep­pen got to tas­te what this respon­si­bi­li­ty feels like. At our Inno­va­ti­on Cen­ter in Gees­te, they took part in the Manage­ment Infor­ma­ti­on Game (MIG) under the gui­d­ance of a Lower Sax­o­ny insti­tu­te that pro­mo­tes busi­ness and com­mer­ce edu­ca­ti­on. This pro­vi­ded an oppor­tu­ni­ty to get to grips with eco­no­mic issu­es, inclu­ding more com­plex mat­ters. The Read more
