Elastic stable floor coverings in the running and lying areas of cattle and dairy cows

Publication of DIN-3763

As already described in a previous blog entry, we are part of a working group that deals with the development of the DIN standard for elastic stable floor coverings in the running and lying areas of cattle and dairy cows. This standard was finally published in April 2020. You can buy the standard here.

The standard sets standards for elastic stable floor coverings to ensure the best for animal welfare. “Cattle are pasture animals in terms of their development. As a result, they have adapted to partially formable subsoil. This subsoil shape has an impact on lying down as well as on standing and running of the animals. A sensible floor design based on elastomer mats can meet these cattle needs To this end, this document specifies requirements for elastomeric mats for cattle stalls. ” (Quote from DIN 3763)

Of course, all of our cubicle and walkway coverings are within these standards, because Huber knows what cows like.

Business bike for our employees

Business bike leasing as a targeted contribution to employee health and more sustainable mobility

Our employees can now lease high-quality bicycles and e-bikes from us. With the JobRad leasing offer we want to promote the health of our employees.

How the JobRad leasing offer works:

Employees choose their preferred bike from the local bike dealer or online. All manufacturers and brands are possible. As employer, we lease the service bike and leave it to our employees. In return, we retain a small portion of the employee’s gross monthly salary, thereby serving the leasing rate. The JobRad is insured and can also be used in your free time. This gives the employee a monetary advantage, which since 01.01.2020 only has to be taxed at 0.25% of the bicycle list price (RRP). This saves the employee significantly compared to conventional purchases. And in order to make the service bike offer even more attractive, we assume the costs for the insurance of the job bikes.

Information regarding the corona virus

Dear Sir or Madam,

the COVID-19 virus is discussed so often in recent days. Fortunately, our house is not currently affected, although the situation can change every hour. Therefore, we would like to inform you that we currently do not expect any delivery difficulties from our side. We are still able to continue our production as usual. We have asked our suppliers to provide us with forecasts of potential delivery bottlenecks.

If our situation or that of our suppliers changes significantly, we will inform you immediately! If the situation changes drastically for you and you run into difficulties with acceptance, we ask you to let us know immediately as well.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and open communication.


Stainless steel drinking bottles for our employees

Another step towards sustainability

Our employees can start the new year with brand new stainless steel drinking bottles from 720 ° DGREE. As part of our annual Company Christmas party, each employee was given a personal and personalized drinking bottle – as a thank you for the good cooperation.
A special highlight is the laser engraving of our logo and the personalization for every employee. The drinking bottles are BPA free and hold 1.2 liters.
The background for this gift was the decision to set up a water dispenser that filters and processes the water and, if required, carbonates it.

With our 500 kWp photovoltaic system on our roofs, we already took the first step towards sustainability in 2012. It is the largest photovoltaic system in the district with using its own electricity – we use 50% of the electricity generated for our own operations.

Focus on employees

An article in the Erdinger Anzeiger

A great article about us and our past Company Christmas party was printed in the Erdinger Anzeiger last Saturday.
During our Christmas celebrations, we regularly honor long-serving employees, special birthdays and trained apprentices. This year we were particularly proud to be able to honor Mr. Peter Maier for his 45 years with the company. At this point we would like to thank Mr. Maier again for his long-term loyalty to our company!

Standardization project for elastomer mats

Meeting in Frankfurt am Main

Last week, our committee met at the WDK in Frankfurt am Main. The aim is the development of a DIN standard for mats and sheets of elastomers, thermoplastic elastomers and their composites for use in agriculture and industry. In just 11 months, our committee was able to develop a completely new DIN standard, which sets various minimum standards to guarantee animal welfare.

A big thank you to all committee members for the good cooperation as well as to the WDK for the hospitality.

The DIN standard will be published in the coming months. Further information on the standardization project as well as a specific contact person can be found here.

Family Pact Bavaria

On Thursday, 24th october 2019 we got a visit from Mrs. Anne Seefeld of the Family Pact Bavaria. Reason for the visit was the 3X3 family-friendly raffle in which we participated and won. The profit consisted in a free consultation regarding a family-friendly arrangement of the working conditions.
Together with Mrs. Seefeld, we worked out various ideas for how we could make our company even more family-friendly. But we also found out that we are not in a bad position when it comes to a family-friendly working environment. After all, the very compatibility of family and work is also our goal as a family-run, traditional company in its fourth generation. We guarantee our employees: Together we can find a solution for every problem!Many thanks again to Mrs. Seefeld for coming. We took many ideas with us!
