But has not loved Dietmar Kurch it has always been to swim with the current. To do his own thing. Time offending. What you can afford but only if you do what you do, really good. To cover roofs, for example.

In the PGH Up was Dietmar Kurch the times of the GDR quickly to the youth Brigadier has become. "To Berlin, we were on the road. We have brought in to showcase objects for the cooperative the chestnuts out of the fire“, looks Kurch back to a time in which the roofer, the everlasting material shortages due to special skills had to compensate for.

"In Köthen, there is almost no roof, we would not have been as a Brigade at the time,"

"In Köthen," says Kurch, "there is almost no roof, we would not have been as a Brigade at the time."

At the beginning we were ten, twelve people in the company.“

Later, it was in the top 30. The staff prepares Kurch today larger Worry than in the past - there is a lack of specialists; roofers, the experts for wood, and rainscreen facades. "We are desperately seeking. In the last few years, getting worse and worse. Although even newcomers get 13,60 Euro hourly wage.“

the launch went into his own business in 1995, almost friction free, so Kurch, is also due to the fact that he's had through the years on construction sites, numerous Compounds, many customers from the times of the GDR knew. "And who knew me."
