Our production

We have been producing sugar at this location for over 140 years. From the very beginning, innovation has been a driving force for us to question the status quo and develop it further in a future-oriented manner in order to efficiently satisfy the needs of our customers. Through a multitude of investments, we have been able to make production even quieter and less odorous in recent years. The rebuild of the boiler house in 2021 reduced CO2 emissions by 50 %. This was a further step towards being able to produce our sugar in a completely CO2-neutral manner from 2040.

Our team

In Jülich, 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 careers page, you will find job offers that match your profile if you are seeking new challenges, for example, as an industrial mechanic or an electrician, or if you are a career starter looking to begin an apprenticeship.

Our commitment

Since 2019, we have maintained a partnership with the local secondary school. In this win-win situation for all parties, students are inspired early on in their career choice. Among other things, we support this through student internships and on-site career choice preparation.
We complement our regional commitment with donations to local charitable associations, sports clubs, and the Jülich food bank.
