"First impressions count" - so they say, and let's be honest, that's how it is. This saying applies not only to people, but also to the entrance area at home and especially in companies. We have redesigned our reception area: Furniture and decoration where moved and added, with the aim of making our entrance more inviting. Our eye-catcher is and remains the orange couch, which is highlighted by bright tables and stylish accessories from our own range.

...and how quickly a small household mirror or a pocket mirror can set something on fire, we tested and recorded under supervision. A pocket mirror, a toilet paper roll and the sun, that's all it took to cause a fire in less than 15 minutes. Unattended or in a room, it could have quickly caused major damage. Even through a window, under certain circumstances a mirror can scorch the window frame or scorch the decorative wooden shell.
Therefore, always take care not to place the mirror directly against the window (whether open or closed) and always protect the mirror surface from direct sunlight.

What many people don't know... for many, many years we and nature have enjoyed the advantages of green roofing. At that time, plants were planted on the roof of one of our warehouses to provide natural protection against heat and cold. Visually, of course, it fits perfectly into the countryside, where we have our headquarter.
And if it weren't a bit cumbersome to climb up there, we would certainly enjoy the odd lunch break or two up there in peace and quiet.

Finally, the time has come: Four brand new flags adorn the meadows in front of the RIDDER GmbH building. Fluttering in the wind, they show a small section of our articles and one or the other well-known, local face. Using the flags, we proudly present the Rhineland-Palatinate award for an attractive employer. They can be seen coming from Nassau directly after the roundabout.

Our country step by step eases strict regulations within the framework of the Corona pandemic, but wearing protection masks especially in buildings will be still part of daily life.
We as a company also want to protect our employees from the virus and, in addition to a whole range of hygiene and distance measures in the internal process, we also try to transfer this protection into the private life of our employees. In this context, our long-standing employee Mr. Siegfried Holzenthal together with his wife sewed masks for each of our colleagues. The mouth and nose protection masks meet the requirements of the so-called community masks and are therefore also suitable for the daily wash up to 60°C.
In addition to the protective aspect, the self-made cotton masks are of course also visually a highlight compared to the disposable masks available in retail.
We and our staff are happy and send a big THANK YOU to our tailors!
