  • Our Corporate Culture

    We see our employees as a strategically vital factor in our company's success.

    That's why we offer you more than a job: morale surveys allow us to understand the mood in the company and initiate the necessary action for further development. The employee magazine "inForm" provides information on new colleagues, business developments and products. Investment in common rooms, a new cafeteria and new office building in recent years are an important contribution to our good business climate.

    Working at Dr. Paul Lohmann®

    By deciding to apply for an apprenticeship or job at Dr. Paul Lohmann® in tune with your own skills and desires, you have chosen to work in a secure but dynamic and international environment.

    Corporate culture at Dr. Paul Lohmann

    Dr. Paul Lohmann® has grown considerably since its foundation in 1886, not least because of the innovations it has developed and the global challenges of the international markets. We maintain our own sales offices in Singapore, New York, Lieusaint and Eindhoven, and oversee our activities around the world from these sites. We have a scientific team in Bratislava. Worldwide, our workforce has grown in recent years from 338 in 2003 to 650 by the end of 2022.

    This positive development of our company is realized and supported by a social and results-oriented business culture. In essence, for us this means working reliably and with commitment, ensuring our actions are sustainable. Whether you are an apprentice or an experienced professional, you will have the opportunity to take on responsibility on your very first day at Dr. Paul Lohmann®. Induction into our work routines and day-to-day operations takes place on the job in a competent team. Our employees are both encouraged and challenged not just by remuneration at a high level (collective agreement IGBCE), but also by a performance- and results-based pay system at management and specialist level.

    Interns as well as high school and college students also have the opportunity to gain in-depth insights into our company. We also promote new, young talent by offering scholarships in collaboration with the Münster University of Applied Sciences. For us behaving and acting in an environmentally compatible way is also an ongoing subject influencing the actions of each employee. The obligations the company feels in this respect are enshrined in our guiding principles. In line with this thinking is our purchase of energy from a biogas plant, operation of a sewage plant to treat our waste water and the use of waste heat from production for internal heating.

    "The core values of our Human Resources always center on thoughts of sustainability:
    We want to offer our employees long-term, lasting prospects with high job security.
    We want to provide targeted support for your development in our company.
    We enable high-potential employees to develop further in-house, and want to offer you new career options based on your qualifications.

    Last but not least, this gives our employees' innovative spirit the best possible encouragement and opportunity for use in developing, producing and promotion our products."

    Managing director Torsten Cuno
