FREY&LAU as an employer

At the Henstedt-Ulzburg location you can discover the world of essential oils, perfume oils and aromas. Thanks to our great employees, we enrich the product world of our customers in the beverage, food, cosmetics, cleaning agent and pharmaceutical industries.

Corporate culture

We combine innovation with tradition and a responsibility that has grown over many years. Despite the size of our company, we can make short communication channels and make quick decisions. Every single employee bears special responsibility for the future success of the company and for maintaining our independence.

Family run

FREY&LAU is an owner-managed family business. The siblings Mrs. Dr. Maja Zippel and Mr. Claas Nendel characterize an open, innovative and future-oriented corporate culture.


Our general conditions enable you to be committed and motivated to access your services every day. Of course, for us, this also includes market-appropriate and motivating remuneration.

Flexible working hours

As a family company, the compatibility of family and career is particularly important to us. We offer flextime, individual and flexible working time models, home office and part-time options. For us, full-time means: 38.5 hours per week with a short Friday.


Balance and relaxation are important for everyone. Therefore, every employee is entitled to 30 days of vacation per year with a 5-day week. So that the Christmas season can be enjoyed to the fullest, we close our operations from Christmas to New Year. If Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve fall on a weekday, we give you these days as an additional vacation day.


“Every beginning is difficult” – but not at FREY&LAU. For a perfect start, we have introduced an onboarding process at FREY&LAU. We make your start as pleasant as possible. You will be accompanied step by step by our employees and sponsors through the early days.

Human resource development 

The demands on the market are constantly changing. Together with you we develop further. We offer long-term perspectives and attractive opportunities for further development and advancement. Individual, demand-oriented further training offers are a matter of course for us. We actively live a constructive feedback culture.

Employer-funded pension

Good provision is also made for your old age: we promote an attractive model for company pension schemes.

Health promotion

The health of our employees is particularly important to us. Our company health management includes targeted examinations for health care, a safe, smoke-free and ergonomic workplace as well as the offer of back coaching and company sports. Eating healthy and exercising is the easiest way to promote good health. We look forward to weekly BIO fruit and vegetable baskets, free hot drinks and water dispensers. Sports events (running, cycling) and a membership in EGym Wellpass keep us fit and strengthen our togetherness.


We like to be together! We look forward to getting together on special occasions such as Christmas, company parties or anniversaries, as well as eventful company outings.
