When it counts, count on us

More than 100 years ago, in 1918, Carl Kaefer used peat to insulate the walls of cold storage spaces. His idea worked so well that it led to the foundation of our company. KAEFER is your global partner when it comes to optimising and safeguarding the performance of your assets even under extreme operational and environmental conditions. With over 33,000 employees and a large international presence, we are a true global player ‑ there for you all over the world.

Sustainability & ESG


Many years ago, KAEFER decided to start encouraging everyone in the company to act, live and work in a sustainable way. This mindset is part of our DNA and has by now been completely integrated in our company strategy. Ensuring that sustainability is part of management as well as operational processes, an ESG-based approach makes it possible for us to exceed applicable standards, achieve commercial success, and pursue meaningful environmental, social and ethical improvements.



Many diverse and individual voices make a strong team. That’s valid not just in terms of work and career, but also in terms of culture. There’s a different face behind every story. And it’s the multifaceted nature of our company that makes it such an exciting and rewarding place to work.
