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.
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.
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.
