Burtenbach, 4th April 2012

Ulrich Humbaur is fulfilling his social responsibility to the region

Since 2009, more than 100 new jobs have been created in Burtenbach

Trailer manufacturer Kögel is now in the limelight again with new energy and unique experience and competence. Since taking on Kögel in 2009, Ulrich Humbaur has assumed an active entrepreneurial role which gives the brand the stability and continuity it deserves. Since joining Kögel, his actions in Burtenbach have led to the creation of more than 100 jobs. In addition, Kögel has switched more than 30 leased employees to permanent positions and has rehired around 25 former employees. Now, there are around 600 employees at the Burtenbach location alone.

Kögel believes in training
Kögel is aware of its social responsibility and places a special importance on training, too. As a result, in addition to a significant increase in trainee positions since 2009, the company has also taken on all of its trainees in permanent positions in accordance with pay scale regulations following the completion of their training. At present, a further 16 trainees can anticipate a permanent position as an industrial clerk, expert in warehouse logistics, mechatronics engineer, or IT specialist, with four people participating in a dual study course in business administration, industry, and machine construction.

“This year, too, Kögel is on course for growth thanks to Mr. Humbaur. For us, creating new jobs means investing in the future” says Anna Hugel, authorized signatory and Head of HR & IT at Kögel. “In addition to jobs for experienced workers and school-leavers, we offer places for trainees and people who want to participate in a dual study course.”

Kögel, a brand steeped in more than 75 years of tradition, has earned itself a leading position throughout Europe and is now back in the limelight with renewed energy and an unmistakable blend of experience and expertise. When he took over Kögel in 2009, Ulrich Humbaur assumed an active entrepreneurial role which gave the brand the stability and continuity it deserves. This is further consolidated by the very sturdy equity ratio that Ulrich Humbaur has made available to his company. Kögel has reinvented itself – by returning to the strengths that originally made the company great: A passion for transport, quality characterised by engineering, innovation that earns its name because it brings benefits for customers, and the reliability of an owner-operated family company with long-term perspectives. In addition to products for the forwarding industry, there are now models for the construction industry, which is not entirely a new sphere of activity for Kögel.
