Dear friend,

A year ago, at this point in time, the first wave of the corona pandemic was over. Meanwhile we are waiting for wave number 4 …
The vaccinations are not going well. Many people are tired and long for normalcy. Even if this includes having to experience and survive such catastrophes as the floods of the last few weeks.
Here in Döbeln on the Freiberger Mulde, we are also experienced with floods. It hit us in 2002 and 2013. Even with our old, 152-year-old location, in 2002 we were under water and on the verge of our existence. We can understand very well what is happening there, how you feel and also what has given us courage and strength. On the one hand there is compassion, solidarity and thus the feeling of not being alone. And on the other hand, this is of course material support, since houses, roads, bridges and companies cannot be built simply by feeling.
That is why we as a company donated, of course, and we asked our employees to also get involved privately.
I didn’t think I’d say that because change is our life here, but I’m looking forward to quieter times overall.
Our markets, especially in the commercial housing sector, are stable and ready to accept our mailbox banks and increasingly our parcel systems, showcases, signage, etc.
However, we are concerned about the major influence that the two issues of material price increases and material shortages are currently having.
Just like all companies that work with raw materials and, in our case, especially with aluminum and sheet steel, we have to fight hard in these areas. And this despite framework agreements and really good long-term business relationships. Unfortunately, the issue has become a major risk in the construction sector.
We, too, cannot compensate for such enormous increases, which also continue unpredictably, precisely because of our calculation, which is always fair and geared towards the best price-performance ratio for our customers. Accordingly, further material inflation surcharges are inevitable.
Crazy times. Take them with humor (at least the parts you can’t change) and keep your head up and your mind open.
Enjoy the summer and find a little joy, relaxation and recreation before we start into the hot autumn that is customary in the industry!


Yours Thomas Kolbe

KNOBOX and PAKNO Explained in the Video

Our Parcel Boxes work that Easily Getting started with our parcel reception solutions is so easy that the most important things can be explained in 100 seconds. “Unfortunately we didn’t meet you” was yesterday. With our KNOBOX parcel box (for one- and two-family houses) and our PAKNO parcel station (for multi-family houses) you are equipped to receive parcels around the clock. Searching for a parking space and queuing at the post office are a thing of the past – as is the annoying question of why the recipient should always have overheard the bell when the parcel is a little heavier or more unwieldy. In addition, and not entirely unimportant in times of Corona: the handover of shipments can be made contact-free with KNOBOX and PAKNO.
