"It may sound banal but it is actually true: I feel that my occupation is a calling. And that's how it is for most of my colleagues at Standardkessel Baumgarte. I started in 1998 as an engineer for power and process engineering. Today my daily challenges mainly involve optimisation and improvements in performance. Simply getting more out of them. And that means that every day I leave old patterns of thinking behind me and appraise and think out things in a new way. That is only possible in a company that leaves the necessary room for manoeuvre for working independently and on your own responsibility and gives you the opportunity to also break new ground. Simply in a company like Standardkessel Baumgarte."
"I have remained loyal to Standardkessel Baumgarte for more than 30 years out of conviction. Following my training to be an industrial business management assistant I immediately took up employment in the appropriate work area for me (materials management). Good interaction is part of the corporate philosophy at Standardkessel Baumgarte and it is practised by the employees in their daily work. In connection with the pleasant working atmosphere, the possibility of assuming genuine responsibility, promoted advanced training and further training opportunities as well as flexible working hours, I still always feel very good."
"At Standardkessel Baumgarte I was able from the very beginning to successfully link theory and practice. Starting in 2005 as a student employee, Standardkessel Baumgarte made it possible for me to write my degree thesis in process engineering here. Since then I have accompanied numerous power plant projects from the start first as a process engineer, then as a maintenance manager, site engineer and currently a technical project manager: from planning via production and erection as far as commissioning. It is simply exciting to see how one cog engages in another and how multi-facetted and complex the tasks and problems in power plant construction are."
"Apprenticeship/training and career-related studies? At the same time? I wanted to take up this challenge. The company providing my training, the Standardkessel Baumgarte Group, gave me full support for my venture from the very outset. At the start of my training to become an industrial business management assistant, I therefore registered with the FOM in Duisburg where I am studying for a bachelor degree in "Business Administration". It's clear that it involves a lot of theory. But fortunately I become familiar with so many different working processes during my training, also in the technical areas within our company that the practical side cannot miss out at all."
"Particularly important for me is the direct contact with our customers. Since it is especially here that I can best and quite systematically find out what requirements and needs they have - always in trusting cooperation. Thanks to my more than 30 years' experience at Standardkessel Baumgarte, I know how important it is to be able to rely on a team of clever, warm-hearted and competent colleagues. Then the work atmosphere is simply right. And that for me is the best motivation for every day solving new interesting and exciting problems"
"For me dealing directly with our customers is particularly important. Since it is here in particular that I can best contribute Standardkessel Baumgarte's many years of experience in plant construction. Here we work in a team of highly motivated and committed colleagues , in which there is enough room for manoeuvre for one's own control mechanisms for successful project management. Since flat hierarchies are the best prerequisite for ensuring that no good idea falls by the wayside."
"I wanted to have a commercial training, that was a fact. And it was just as important for me that within the scope of this I would ideally improve my knowledge of foreign languages and be able to make use of them. So it was actually logical that I decided in favour of the Standardkessel Baumgarte Group. Since as a global player we are active worldwide and develop and support many international projects. Since successfully completing my training I have been working as an accounts clerk at Standardkessel Baumgarte Service GmbH. So far my work there has been as exciting and varied as my period of training. And I can really make good use of my knowledge of foreign languages every day."
»Standardkessel Baumgarte provides me with the possibility of taking an active part in shaping the company’s success. At Standardkessel Baumgarte I felt good from the first day on. Owing to an instructive period of training and the carrying out of the most varied activities I am well-equipped for everyday work and am challenged and supported on a daily basis. Standardkessel Baumgarte has given me the opportunity to constantly develop further. As a holder of a general commercial power of attorney and as a technical director, today I can assume responsibility and always meet new challenges.«
"What made me enthusiastic on my first day at work with Standardkessel more than 30 years ago still takes first place for me today: the good working atmosphere and the great team work. Starting with an apprenticeship to become an engineering draughtsman I was able to continuously develop my abilities by means of regular training and further training courses and now work as the head of the department Installation Planning/CAD. A position with a lot of responsibility, but at the same time with sufficient freedom to be able to contribute one's own ideas. And ideal for carrying the Standardkessel corporate culture further."
