At the beginning of August, in best barbecuing weather, branch manager Andreas Bez and the members of the local workforce gathered for a day of fun and celebration on the premises of the Blumenbecker branch in Zeitz, where they were also joined by local mayor Christian Thieme and also Blumenbecker Managing Director Ralf Herzog. The reason for the event was to mark the 25th anniversary of the setting-up of Blumenbecker Technik GmbH’s site in Zeitz.
From their location in Zeitz, the 20 employees provide technical service for cranes, lifting devices and industrial gates and doors to customers as far away as Leipzig and the “Middle German Chemical Triangle”. And indeed, despite the special occasion, some members of the service team were unable to attend as they were away, working at customers’. The skilled industrial electronics technicians and mechanical fitters find themselves most often working at foundry businesses in the region. “They are our principal clients,” says Andreas Bez, who puts the number of customers at around 100.
The head office of Blumenbecker Technik GmbH is located Bad Lauchstädt, but around a sixth of its annual sales turnover of approx. 15 million euros is generated by the Zeitz branch.“ Zeitz is currently growing very strongly,” Ralf Herzog is pleased to report. That means, among other things, that it is constantly on the lookout for new qualified service technicians and fitters (male/female).
