We as employers


Our employees are the reason for our success. We stand for diversity. We have people working in the Hammer stores, the Brueder Schlau craft stores, sewing studios, head office and in logistics. They work as interior designers, floor layers, salespersons, warehouse clerks, drivers, buyers, marketing managers or graphic designers.

They all represent the most important assets and play a decisive role in the progress of the group of companies. Above all, collegial cooperation and open communication are very important to us. With over 5,500 team members, our company thrives on the various levels of experience, backgrounds and characters.
