When Kai Schäfer tells his story, it becomes obvious that Heuft is a true family company where everybody talks to everybody. He joined the company in 2007 as an unskilled production worker. At the time, he studied electrical engineering and just needed a job to fund his studies. One day in the production hall, a man who Kai Schäfer had never met before asked him about his studies. After a brief conversation, the man suggested that he might stay on and join the IT team of Heuft after finishing his degree course. And that is exactly what Kai Schäfer did. Today, he would have no trouble recognizing the man who approached him at the time. It was Georg Rosenbach, member of the Heuft board of management, a boss who knows and values his workers and is true to his word.
