What our employees and apprentices say about us

Training at the Winkelmann Group offers young people the opportunity to work on their weaknesses and build on their strengths. Fresh ideas and new impulses are supported. This allows me to work independently and creatively.

Marleen Hartwig, former trainee, now HR administrator

I have been working in our company since 1998. It's great to see how we are constantly developing - and me along with it. I started as an accountant, then I was assistant to the director. Since 2001, I have been working as a warehouse logistics specialist, where I have arrived.
