KAEFER has announced Q3 2018 results.
The centenary is coming to an end shortly. It’s been an amazing year with celebrations around the world. To end 2018 with something special, we have created a very special history microsite on the KAEFER website.
Please feel invited to browse through 100 years of KAEFER: listen to anecdotes, watch movies and explore numerous project highlights. Thanks to the dedication, know-how and hard work of many generations of KAEFER employees, we can look back on ten impressive decades – and ahead to many more to come. Enjoy!
Severe floods caused by heavy rainfall hit Kerala in southern India heavily in May and August. It was the worst monsoon in a century and caused almost 500 deaths, affecting at least 1 million people directly. 15 Indian KAEFER employees working in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates had to face devastating damage to their homes back in Kerala. Their colleagues from the Middle East came to help. Donations were collected across all locations and together with the financial aid of the KAEFER FOUNDATION these employees will be now able to rebuild their homes. We can’t thank all supporters enough.

To mark our centenary, the ‘KAEFER Zukunftspreis’ was launched in 2018. Open to students from German universities, this €5,000 prize for innovation will be awarded regularly to an outstanding research project in company related fields. This year the KAEFER jury selected Leander Stützel of Augsburg University of Applied Sciences as the overall winner. Leander was awarded the prize for his work on optimising the natural building material loam, specifically through improving its thermal properties.
On Saturday, more than 1,200 KAEFER employees & retirees and their families celebrated KAEFER’s centenary in Bremen, Germany. It was a fantastic day filled with entertainment, music, food and lots of activities. Kids could scream at the top of their lungs in the acoustic laboratory, visitors were able to explore thermography first hand or dive into the rich history of our company. What a shame we don’t turn 100 more often…

Our colleagues in Abu Dhabi have successfully erected a 107 meters tall, 54 lifts scaffolding at the big C3 stripper column of Ruwais Refinery West Units (RRW UR). A team of 70 scaffolders utilised 23,310 m3 / 585 tons of scaffolding material for this job. Very hot weather, high humidity and the occasional strong wind were among the daily challenges. Our project team was recognised by our client ‘GS Engineering’ who awarded KAEFER for the valuable contributions in achieving 10 million man-hours without LTI at the RRW UR Project. Congratulations to everyone involved - keep up the very good and safe working attitude! Special thanks to our Scaffolding Design team at KAEFER Saudi Arabia for providing the design.
13 young colleagues in Germany have successfully finished their 2-year apprenticeship as insulation fitters. We are very happy that the majority has decided to add a third year to become industrial insulation technicians. Congratulations to our apprentices and their two trainers, well done!
KAEFER in Saudi Arabia was recognized for its outstanding safety and work performance for 2018 by Saudi ARAMCO Ras Tanura Refinery (RTR). Our proud colleagues have been engaged for a five-year contract to execute scaffolding works for maintenance and shutdown at the RTR plant. A huge thanks to the entire team involved for their engagement and dedication!

A team of KAEFER in the UK seized the opportunity to cover their boss in paint for a worthwhile cause.
