Who are the people who work, learn, develop products and initiate projects at CLASSEN? What drives them? What are their joys, their challenges, their goals? Here in the CLASSEN blog, they take us behind the factory gates of CLASSEN in Kaisersesch and Baruth.
In 2002 I read a newspaper report about the opening of a new laminate factory in Brandenburg. It sounded tempting like a ticket to the future: there was a brand new plant in Baruth in the Mark Brandenburg and it had just started operations. I applied without further ado and joined the team at CLASSEN Industries in March 2003. Since then, a lot of new things have happened in Baruth, the factory has quadrupled in size! Here is a brief summary of my experiences over the last 19 years.
CLASSEN's MegaLoc locking system for laminate is groundbreaking in the flooring world. In this blog, I describe our journey from idea to market-ready production.
Is it possible to process as much wood as we do at CLASSEN for our laminate and still be sustainable? Yes. I'll tell you why in my blog post.
In my blog, I report on how CLASSEN became the pioneer of digital printing in the laminate flooring industry. At Classen Industries GmbH, I was able to shape an important part of our company's technological innovations myself.
What makes a good production location? For me, the answer is clear and I am happy to give it in my blog post.
When CLASSEN started in Baruth / Mark, nobody knew us there. Today we are one of the most important employers in the region. I will describe how this came about in a retrospective.
To keep HDF production for laminate production running smoothly for the whole world, we have to keep the equipment in top condition at all times. This is an exciting task, which I tell you about in my blog post.
I benefit from the opportunity to work in a home office at CLASSEN in Kaisersesch. I describe in my post why this is so and what has changed in our company.
Seven years ago, I came from East Westphalia to CLASSEN in Baruth, Brandenburg. I describe my impressions in my blog post.
How many tonnes of CO₂ emissions could we save at CLASSEN in 2020 and how did we do it? I will reveal it in my blog post.
Setting up a new production facility at a different location is a challenging project. Not only logistically, but also for the employees themselves. When CLASSEN moved its laminate production from Kaisersesch to Baruth, I was up close and personal as one of the people responsible for production in Kaisersesch. I share a few of my memories in my blog post.
For 15 years, I have been working with my colleagues to ensure that our laminate meets the highest quality standards. I'll tell you all about what we do in my post.
I flew the Cologne - Berlin route so often that at one point the stewardesses almost greeted me with a handshake. The reason was a challenging project that I still remember fondly today.
I have been with CLASSEN since 2008. Working here turned out to be a great adventure for me, not only in my professional but also private life. It was here that I met my husband Wojciech, with whom we have been creating a happy family for several years.
I have been working in the laminate industry for 20 years now and have developed and helped develop many innovations. It is not new that laminate can hardly be distinguished visually from original wooden floors. It's not new that laminate is super easy and quick to lay. What is really new is that we can make laminate really water-resistant with the megaloc aqua protect installation system. It makes me proud that we at CLASSEN have succeeded in doing this and have thus reached a new category. Now laminate can be used for the entire living area and even in damp rooms.
