Craftsmanship from the start

August Kreienbaum GmbH is strong on tradition. Now a modern, international company, we have our roots in a small craftman's workshop in the middle of the Münsterland region.

Our dedication to the craftsmanship tradition is as strong today as it ever was. Our Managing Director Markus Hinnüber served for 13 years (until 2009) as Master of the Guild of Carpenters and is now a board member of the NRW Professional Carpenters Association in Dortmund.

Because supporting young talent is important to us,  we have been offering apprenticeship opportunities to two aspiring carpenters a year since 1986, with an additional yearly apprenticeship position added in 1994. As the company has continued to grow, a strong e cooperative structure has developed in the region and far beyond.
