Up and up: Frey + Lau is building

Higher, faster, further? Frey + Lau is focused more on precision, faster, better – especially at the new rectification plant which is being built on our company premises. We are already successfully operating our existing plants at the highest technical level: they are used for cleaning, fractionating and concentrating essenti al oils and deliver excellent natural building blocks for the development of flavours and fragrances.

As the demand for our high-quality products is constantly growing, Frey + Lau is now investing in another batch vacuum rectification plant.A new hall, which also provides space for further distillation plants as well as a filling room and a new technical center, will also include the new rectification system - a 13 metre-high technical masterpiece made of shiny stainless steel. It will expand the distillation capacities of Frey + Lau by 40 % and allow us to fractionate even more precisely.

The new plant combines excellent separation performance with even more volume and also has state-of-the-art automation technology with which we want to go in the future. In June 2017 felt the starting shot for the new construction project. The plant will be put into operation in the first quarter of next year - we will keep you up to date.

IHK Vocational Qualification Certificate in just one year

From nothing to a vocational certificate in one year: As part of a unique project in cooperation with the Bundesagentur für Arbeit (German Federal Employment Agency), the IHK (Chambers of Industry and Commerce), and the Wirtschaftsakademie Schleswig-Holstein (Schleswig-Holstein Business Academy), Frey + Lau GmbH has enabled five employees to retroactively obtain a recognized and accredited vocational qualification. The project is made possible by the “external students' examination” process. The German Federal Employment Agency supports this measure by providing financial support for training course fees, travel expenses, teaching materials and wage subsidies within the scope of the “WeGeBau” initiative, a Germany-wide program offered to employees over 45 years of age and those who do not have any usable certified vocational training.

Vocational qualification made easy? Far from it: the employees had to intensively study and prepare for the regular theory portion of the exam as well as the practical examination in just one year, on a part-time basis – a study course which would usually take two to three years at a vocational college. This can only be possible with full support from family and colleagues – and with so much backing, all five employees accomplished their goal and successfully passed the exam with good results. Unskilled employees thus became “Chemical Production Specialists” or “Warehouse Logistics Technicians”.

Frey + Lau is a co-initiator of the project and helped support it financially. CEO Claas Nendel says: "We feel strongly connected to our staff, and as a growing company, we are continuously looking for qualified, skilled employees to join us. It was therefore a logical step for us to enable our unskilled employees to document their expertise and know-how by obtaining a vocational qualification. Acquiring the specialized knowledge also lets employees understand their tasks better, and so the quality of work increases as a result.”
