CAREER STORIES

Our product and service portfolio is just as diverse as the spectrum of professions and the projects that await you at Klöckner & Co SE – either at our Headquarters in Duisburg or at any of our locations.

Take a look at what employees at our country organizations and the holding company have to say about their work and professions at Klöckner:

RAMI RIHAWI

Junior Software Developer, kloeckner.i, Berlin


"At kloeckner.i we develop platforms for ordering steel online. I do something important because I build the platforms as a backend developer. The technologies we work with at kloeckner.i are very advanced. Being here and being able to work with such great people makes me happy. I think we're more than just colleagues."
Rami Rihawi had to flee his hometown of Aleppo in Syria and came to Germany in September 2015. With the help of an app he taught himself the German language and came into contact with our digital daughter kloeckner.i through our partner ReDI-School, a programming school for refugees. After a successful internship kloeckner.i hired Rihawi and employs him since then as a platform developer. In the video he shows the offices of kloeckner.i and talks about a very special guest.

DR. STEFAN SIMON

Head of Logistics Processes, Performance & Network, Kloeckner Shared Services GmbH, Duisburg

"Klöckner gives me the chance to use my strengths and knowledge – and to live out my special interests, especially in strategic logistics projects. Working with my colleagues, whom I get to know and respect through projects that transcend hierarchical levels and national boundaries, is also a great source of inspiration. It’s just as exciting and challenging to put the more theoretical, strategic findings into practice and bring the success of these concepts to life."

JAMIE PFLEGER

Director of Physical Vapor Disposition, Kloeckner Metals Corporation, Cincinnati

"What I particularly like about my work at Klöckner is the people - my colleagues and our customers. And I like challenges. There are plenty of them, especially currently in PVD. I can take care of commercial matters and expand on them, but at the same time I look after the operative side. An exciting job."

CHRISTIAN SCHNEIDER

Transport Manager Region Central, Kloeckner Metals Operations GmbH, Duisburg

"I chose Klöckner because I saw long-term prospects with a great deal of potential. My job gives me interesting assignments that let me work with all the company divisions and people ranging from managerial to warehouse staff."

VALERIE GUILBERT

Regional Director, Kloeckner Metals France

"In my role as branch manager (and regional head), I really thrive on being at the heart of the action, surrounded by my teams. Each day brings its own challenges – be it commercial, logistical, etc. In order to overcome them, you need to get stuck into the details, understand the problem and finally apply the best solution. "

ERDINC ORUNCAK

Employed in stainless/high-grade steel, Klöckner & Co Deutschland GmbH, Frechen

“I have been with Klöckner for around 23 years now, and I really enjoy working here. The environment is one of trust among colleagues and supervisors alike. I particularly appreciate the emphasis given to working independently and taking individual responsibility.”

THORSTEN GAERTNER

Chief Financial Officer (CFO), Kloeckner Metals France

"Klöckner & Co was appealing because it is a highly respected, major German stock corporation. The company offers a transparent and dynamic working environment with lots of connections to other countries. The fact that our products are put to use in large sections of the economy is also very inspiring."

CASSIDY CRONE

Student at Princeton University and in the summer of 2019 intern in the Digital Supply Chain, Klöckner & Co SE, Duisburg

„This summer I am participating in the Ruhr Fellowship, which is a program that brings students from great Universities in the United States together in the Ruhr Area to learn about german culture and language and also get work experience in local companies. I am doing my internship here with the Digital Supply Chain Group, focusing on titanium research and also working on digitalization of Klöckner‘s distribution service. I could definetly imagine working here in the future.“
