Our production

Our location in Euskirchen operates “at full steam” all year round and runs on a four- and five-shift system to supply our customers with liquid sugar and sugar specialties. Beet is supplied to the factory on defined routes and only with a limited number of vehicles at night in order to preserve the peace and quiet of local residents.

After phasing out coal, we are turning to renewable resources utilizing wood for primary energy supply. This way, we are heading towards carbon neutrality.

Our team

In Euskirchen, we are one of the larger employers. Our employees often have been with us for many years because they perform interesting and challenging tasks. Switching between campaign and repair phases requires different skills, which we promote through continuous training. On our career page, you will find job offers that suit your profile if you are seeking new challenges, for example, as an industrial mechanic or an electronics technician, or if you are a career starter looking to begin an apprenticeship.

Our commitment

From the region, for the region. For many years, we have been the main exhibitor at the annual “Knollenfest”. We are also active in job fairs and Girls’ Future Days. As part of a longstanding partnership with Emil-Fischer-Gymnasium and Gesamtschule Euskirchen, we foster an intensive exchange and advocate for the next generation. Furthermore, we have been supporting the local food bank for many years by donating our sugar products. We regularly donate to the Euskirchen emergency shelter and the volunteer fire department.
