Every successful company history begins with a courageous decision. Hans Fleischmann made this decision in 1982. He laid the foundation for a success story that continues to this day: 40 years later, we can celebrate this anniversary!
We are looking forward to taking you on a journey through 40 years of F.EE this year with a series of interesting employee stories, exciting pictures and videos.
Stories of our employees
40 years is a big anniversary for F.EE - but also many of our employees can celebrate their anniversaries this year. Look forward to many exciting stories and interesting insights into our company history!
Like many great companies, it all started in a garage!
In 2022, F.EE will be 40 years old - and we would like to introduce one of our longest-serving employees today: Max has been with us for more than 35 years, so he has witnessed F.EE's development almost from the beginning.
Insight into 30 years of F.EE sales
In our last interview, you already met Max, who has been working at F.EE for more than 35 years. With 59 years of employment, we can even top this number – however, we have invited two colleagues for today's interview: With Wilfried and Heiner, we may give you an insight into the F.EE sales department.
Insights into times gone by
F.EE employees - past and present
On the occasion of our 40th anniversary, we went through our photo archives and came across some great shots. Of course we don't want to withhold these from you and therefore start a small series with a comparison of current photos and pictures from past times.
A lot has happened at F.EE in the last 40 years: To accommodate the enormous growth process, our buildings have also had to evolve. Therefore, in our anniversary year, we would also like to take you on a journey through F.EE's structural development.
Highlights gab es im Laufe der Jahre viele – Die Aufnahme in die Reihe der Digitalen Champions in Bayern im Jahr 2017 ist eines der aktuellsten.
