KELLER participates in the state programme
As a participant in the state programme, KELLER has signed the charter on reconciling work and care and is a reconciliation partner. The care guide person at KELLER provides initial information and orientation on the compatibility of work & care on a collegial basis and informs about external assistance and regional counselling networks.
Balancing work and care is becoming increasingly important. The number of people in need of care and thus the number of family carers is continuously increasing. The employment rate is also rising steadily. Consequently, the group of working family carers is growing. At the same time, the lack of qualified personnel continues to worsen in many companies.
There are currently 1.2 million people in need of care in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). Most of them are cared for at home by their relatives. In many cases, these carers are employed: An estimated 500,000 working people in NRW care for relatives, partners or friends in addition to their job. It is our responsibility as an employer to take into account the demographic development of society on the one hand and, above all, the needs of our employees who take on care responsibilities on the other.
KELLER HCW has successfully conducted hydrogen firing test under real operation conditions
At the Hagemeister clinker bricks production plant in Nottuln (Germany), bricks were fired with hydrogen under real conditions in a joint project with several partners. This positive and pragmatic success places KELLER now in a position to deliver burner technology for hydrogen operation, together with the required control and safety technology. And thus, it is doing justice to its ambitious claim of increasing energy efficiency and reducing CO2 emissions in the bricks and tiles industry.
The test operation with hydrogen is part of the research project

Future Day 2023
On April 27, some students got a taste of our apprenticeship professions. The nationwide campaign day (formerly "Girls'Day, Boys'Day") for girls and boys is held every school year at all general education schools for grades 5 - 9. On this day, students are given insights into various professions that are suitable for expanding the traditional, gender-specific spectrum of possible professions for girls and boys. They can take part in activities in companies, colleges and institutions and are thus encouraged to explore professions that they themselves usually do not consider. Four girls and eight boys visited KELLER. In the morning, the young people were given an insight into the professions of industrial mechanic and industrial clerk. After a small snack, at this point a big thank you to Burger Bench https://burger-bench.de/ for the great preparation, they went on to the areas of electronics technician and ceramics laboratory. It was an exciting and informative day! Many thanks to all!
