25 years heating elements from Freek
Read here the complete background information.
We have been developing electric heating elements for more than 70 years
Friedr. Freek has been founded in 1950 as a manufacturer of electric heating elements. This is one of the few points that haven´t changed until this day: we still produce electric heating elements. Friedr. Freek are based in Menden / Sauerland, approx. 30 km southeast of Dortmund. About 60 employees are working here.
We all work totally team-oriented, from the boss up to the production employee. There is only one hierarchy level: the one of the executive board, all other employees are at the same hierarchy level, with just one more manager on the shop floor as a disciplinary superior.
This allows our employees to work as independently as possible; interfaces are reduced to a minimum. This guarantees shortest decision-making routes and motivated employees. This is something our customers benefit from.
