Did you know? - The tradition of the original Dresdner Christstollen ...

... dates back to the 15th century. the “Christstollen” was first mentioned in a document in 1474.

At that time the stollen was a simple pastry, which was also called Striezel or Strutzel and was only allowed in the pre-Christmas period as a Lenten fare. It was not until the last century that this simple pastry became the delicacy we know today, because well into the 15th century, the religious dogmas of the Roman church permitted little more than water, yeast and flour for a Striezel recipe.

Those early Christstollens probably weren’t very tasty, completely without butter, milk, sultanas, candied peel or almonds. To put an end to this dilemma, Elector Ernst of Saxony and his brother Albrecht turned to Pope Nicholas V with a request to lift the butter ban.

The Holy Father granted this wish and in 1491 sent the "butter letter" to the regent city. From then on, stollen was made tasty and juicy with delicious golden butter.

Previously, the Saxons had to make do with beet oil. (More interesting information can be found at www.emil-reimann.de: Die Geschichte des Stollen.)

In this spirit, we wish you a delicious, enjoyable and blessed Christmas, time to rejoice over what you have achieved and to relax in the company of your loved ones.

Further ABI Mobilram TM14-17V piling/drilling rigs are stationed in Stockholm and Hainichen

In order to meet the rapidly growing demand for piling equipment, we have ordered further equipment from ABI. The Swedish colleagues of GDS Geo Drilling Solutions AB will start using one of these devices in early 2018. 

The machines are extremely flexible and can be used for piling of sheet piles, drilling with endless augers or down-the-hole-hammer drilling. Appropriate attachments are available for this purpose.

The logistics specialist Daniel Janka is now taking care of freight services

Initially, we offered to organize transportation around our rental services only at the express request of the client. In the meantime, this has rather become the norm. Daniel previously worked for the international logistics group Kühne & Nagel and has many years of experience in the logistics sector. With him, all freight is in the best hands and adherence to deadlines and cost efficiency is a matter of course. He knows what long distances mean - not only on the job, but also in private, since he is a passionate runner.

3 new colleagues strengthen our workshop team

We welcome Olaf Böttger, Tilo Claußnitzer and Kevin Weipert to our team. The new colleagues have many years of experience in steel and metal construction and in the field of assembly. Kevin Weipert is also involved in the service and maintenance of our drilling and piling equipment. 

We provide apprenticeships!

In cooperation with the training workshop in Chemnitz we give two young people the opportunity to learn the profession of industrial mechanic. Rick Peter and Luca Hermann have been part of our team since autumn. We see apprenticeships as a building block for the future viability of our company - and we also see this as part of our social responsibility. 

New workshop hall put into operation

Finally it's done: Our brand new maintenance and repair hall can go into use. It is now possible to maintain all our drilling rigs - up to Liebherr's LB36 - in the hall regardless of weather conditions. Furthermore, modern welding workplaces with state-of-the-art air pollution control equipment have been created. For our colleagues, this means significantly improved working conditions that are less harmful to their health. In the welding shop, tools and kelly bars are professionally repaired. The crane runway with a load capacity of 12.5 t also contributes to the facilitation of operations. Modern workshop offices, changing rooms and showers complete the new working environment.
