Sounds exciting?
Then read on! We are looking for reinforcement for our team.

Working in one of the most beautiful regions of Germany

Our company grounds extend over 89 hectares in the midst of forests and fields. Deer and other wild animals are often seen as fellow residents, which one encounters in the morning. Our location offers a quality of life close to nature with a high recreational value.


To keep our workplace idyllic, we actively invest and engage in environmental protection, e.g. by electrifying our vehicle fleet, providing company bicycles, an in-house sewage treatment plant, forest management (afforestation of mixed forest), planting bee pastures in unused areas and reducing energy and water consumption.
