  • Sustainability is a great opportunity

    Family businesses like Knauf think and act in the long-term, they are flexible, have short decision-making procedures, a flat hierarchy and trust their staff to take on responsibilities at an early stage. Our success is also based on the orientation towards fixed values and the corporate culture of working together. Interview with Alexander Knauf
  • Earthquake-resistant construction with Knauf
