Summer Party and Jubilee

For 25 years now FREY&LAU is situated in Henstedt-Ulzburg. On this occation the executive board decided to organise a feast for every employee and their families. A big party on the company site. You could get delicious sweet oder savoury snack from a bunch of food trucks, a kids corner with a bouncy castle, face painting and Bobby car racing and for the grown-ups a shisha lounge with cocktail bar and a DJ. In the marquee were playing band, 4sale blues and later the hip hop crew FNLS feat. Dilara - both staffed with FREY&LAU employees. As a highlight for everyone, you could visit the production site. A great fun day for all visitors.

The CEOs tread everyone with the typical german Christmas eve dinner: sausages and potato salad. This year the order of 550 sausages broke all records.
