AS A FAMILY-OWNED COMPANY, WE HAVE A SPECIAL RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS OUR EMPLOYEES AND INVEST A LOT IN A HEALTHY WORKING ENVIRONMENT. IN RETURN, OUR EMPLOYEES ARE ABLE TO DELIVER OUTSTANDING WORK.
CFO, BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding
The fact that employees feel comfortable in the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding Group companies is not least evident from their loyalty. The average length of service in the corporate groups in Germany is around 18 years, which is far above the industry average. There is also a long-standing workforce at the other locations around the world.
Another special feature is that married couples – and even entire families – work for the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding corporate groups. Like Marko Pandza and Ivana Levacic, a married couple and both working for E.G.O. Elektro-Komponente d.o.o. in Croatia. But that’s not all: they first met and fell in love at work! “The fact that we’re still in the same company 20 years later actually says it all. If the work environment were not so friendly towards couples, we certainly wouldn’t have stuck around for so long, at least not as a couple,” says Marko Pandza.

At B.PRO CZ s.r.o., Frýdek-Místek, Czech Republic, there are also employees who are related. For Zbynek Velart and his mother Barbora Velartova, however, it was pure coincidence that they both ended up in the same company. She had worked in production for a year, and her son joined the company as a designer. It was an easy decision for Zbynek Verlart to take the plunge – thanks to his mother’s positive experiences.

Pioneering spirit as a growth driver
At the beginning of the almost one hundred-year company history of the BLANC & FISCHER Family Holding there was an idea: founders Heinrich Blanc and Karl Fischer wanted to make working in the kitchen easier, more comfortable, and safer.
Because health matters most
