The “Fichtelburger” was there

On July 21, 2021, the time had come. The food truck "Fichtelburger" from Marktredwitz was with us and provided the employees with delicious burgers.

The management donated a burger to the entire staff including temporary workers as a thank you for the last "special" months.

The staff were very happy to be able to choose from a variety of burger versions.

Donation 2020

Dear shareholders
The Röslau lunchtime childminding would like to thank the shareholders of Stahl-und Drahtwerk Röslau GmbH for their generous donation. We have now received the games that we last ordered.
Since we will probably be allowed to reopen the lunchtime childminding next Monday, we are happy to be able to hand over the new toys to the children.
Some of the children from the emergency childminding were already able to use the gifts and were very happy about them.
With kind regards
The lunchtime childminding team

50 years with Stahl- und Drahtwerk Roeslau

Angelika Weiße spent her entire working life at Stahl- und Drahtwerk Röslau GmbH.

Angelika Weiße feels comfortable at her workplace at Stahl- und Drahtwerk Röslau GmbH - even after 50 years with the company. Her retirement is not planned until the end of the year.

Not everyone manages to work for half a century in the same company: Angelika Weiße has succeeded. As the oldest employee in the company, she was now able to accept the congratulations of the management, works council, personnel and purchasing management.

Born in Röslau, she began her apprenticeship as an industrial clerk at the age of 14 on 1 August 1968 and worked in many departments. After her apprenticeship she was employed in company accounting and purchasing. Weiße never grasped the idea of working for another employer: "I didn't have to do anything new, I had it all here," she says. She currently works until the end of the year and then goes into well-earned retirement. "I have no concerns that boredom will arise. There are plenty of opportunities to get busy.
