Mühlacker, 8 December 2023 – Working for the same company for 10, 20, 25, 30, 35 or even 40 years: Craiss Generation Logistik GmbH & Co. KG is celebrating this employee loyalty. For 25 employees – from warehouse logistics to administration and the workshop through to production – 2023 marked an honourable milestone in their careers. At four decades, Uwe Seifried from Mühlacker has been with us the longest. The forklift driver has devoted his entire professional life to the Baden-Württemberg family business.

"There is probably no greater compliment for companies and no more solid proof of employee satisfaction than long-standing employees. We are therefore extremely proud of the decades of service of so many colleagues at Craiss," says Dirk Fuhrmann, authorised signatory and Head of Human Resources, Insurance and Purchasing at Craiss Generation Logistik GmbH & Co. KG.

Throughout the year, the management honoured all those celebrating anniversaries at the Bremen, Bremerhaven, Mühlacker, Regensburg, Schwandorf, Tübingen and Warburg sites for their tireless commitment and 435 years of continued loyalty.

Special thanks went to Uwe Seifried. The 62-year-old joined the logistics service provider in 1983 after completing his apprenticeship and military service – at the suggestion of Christa Craiss, the sister of former owner, Albert Craiss. "I actually only planned to stay for a few months, but that turned into 40 years," smiles Seifried. As a forklift driver at the Mühlacker logistics centre, he is responsible for incoming and outgoing goods, customer service and stocktaking – for the time being, as he is due to take his well-earned retirement next year. "I'll always look back fondly on my time at Craiss. It was a great community, we did a lot – we went on outings together and organised fantastic celebrations," sums up Seifried.
