Secondary modern school Gefrees for company tour
At the beginning of December 2018, 30 pupils of the 8th grade of the secondary school Gefrees with their teacher, Mrs. Susanne Ströhl and the deputy principal, Mr. Sebastian Leßner, visited the steel and wire works in Röslau.
The manufacturing process was made transparent for the three small groups. During a tour of our production facilities, we showed visitors how our products are made. Here the pupils could experience different production stages live. The factory tour lasted about 60 minutes and included a snack.

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.
