The People Behind the Success

We pass our know-how down from generation to generation. Since 1946, we have had our own teaching workshop at our headquarters in Vilsbiburg, in which our apprentices can learn their professions in a practical setting.

Building careers in the company is more than just an interesting development opportunity for Flottweg. We see it as a clear challenge to everyone to bring their own knowledge, engagement, and personality into the company. Because the success of our customers is always based on our know-how and our employees.
