On May 10, 2023, KUTTER invited to the groundbreaking ceremony for the long-awaited Penny market in the Offenstetten district of Abensberg. For the citizens of Offenstetten, a long-standing wish has come true with the construction of their own supermarket. The project is now possible not least because with KUTTER not only a construction company has been found, but also an investor for the building, because KUTTER will rent the building and the area to Penny Markt GmbH in the future.

Construction work began in October 2022 with the creation of the left-turn lane into the future supermarket site, with opening scheduled for early 2024. A Penny supermarket will be built with around 1000 m2 of retail space and 75 planned parking spaces. Environmental considerations were also taken into account, for example a green roof is planned. Heat pumps and recovery from commercial refrigeration are to provide the energy supply. A PV system is also planned for the roof. The location at the entrance to the town is also ideal, where there is already a restaurant, a bakery and a gas station with a car dealership. "People who shop locally avoid unnecessary traffic," Managing Director Ulrich Dick put it in a nutshell. In his greeting, he also emphasized the good cooperation with the Abensberg city administration, that the project could be advanced very quickly.

VHK Career forum

KUTTER meets students
at munich university

Yesterday we were at the Munich University of Applied Sciences at the career fair VHK Career Forum BAU!

More than 300 students from the construction industry from various universities from all over Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg were on site and were able to find out about the best way to start a career. Demand was also high on the subject of student assignments as interns or working students and the various options for the bachelor’s thesis.

We had many great conversations and are happy about the lively interest in KUTTER.

KUTTER Instructor Day

Coaching for trainers
in the conference hotel

In March, the trainers of all training professions from KUTTER go to a trainers' day in the conference hotel.

The priority was the exchange of experiences and the promotion of independent professional action in order to make our trainees fit for everyday working life.

The coaching focused on what it takes to successfully design the training for our trainees and what communication channels are needed.

The participants obviously had fun and we are sure that the common sense of togetherness was strengthened.



A few weeks ago we were able to welcome classes 7a and 7bM from the Türkheim middle school to our training workshop in Mindelheim for the construction rally.

The students had the opportunity to get to know the activities of our apprenticeships within the KUTTER Group at individual stations and to demonstrate their manual skills.

As part of this construction rally, the classes worked together to produce benches for their schoolyard. We were now able to hand over these benches and wish the students many nice breaks on them!

Attention: you can do an internship at KUTTER and RIEBEL all over the year. Just find out more at www.kutter.de/karriere or www.riebel-bau.de/karriere .



A few weeks ago, as part of the winter school, our KUTTER and RIEBEL trainees realized a project for our cooperation partner, the Mindelheim middle school, in their playground: As reported, the old fountain was removed to create an outdoor chess board for the students.

In order to be able to use this now, we, as a cooperation partner, have donated the appropriate chess pieces.

The handover took place yesterday and on this occasion the benches created during the last construction rally found their place in the playground.

We wish the students a lot of fun with it!

KUTTER running team

half marathon
in Ottobeuren

Our KUTTER running team once again did a great job at the 2023 half marathon in Ottobeuren. The run took place in Ottobeuren for the eleventh time this year and is integrated for the first time as a kick-off event in the LEW running tour. A total of 300 runners started.

The popular sports event of the Bavarian-Swabian energy supplier LEW consists of a total of 8 races and will be continued in Illertissen on May 7th. As usual, the finale is the New Year's Eve run in Gersthofen on December 31st. Many thanks for the great organization and great atmosphere!

Final sprint

End of construction rally
in Türkheim

Last Friday we were able to welcome classes 7a and 7bM from the Türkheim secondary school to the construction rally in our training workshop in Mindelheim for the last time.

This time, the students once again had the opportunity to try out our apprenticeships within the KUTTER Group at various stations and to put their manual skills to the test.

We are very pleased that some students have obviously shown an interest in an apprenticeship in construction and hope to see many of them again for an internship.

We will soon also be handing over the schoolyard benches that were made as part of the construction rally to the Mindelheim and Türkheim secondary schools.

Attention: you can always do an internship at KUTTER and RIEBEL without having been a participant in our construction rally. Just find out more at www.kutter.de/karriere or www.riebel-bau.de/karriere.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Internal school training fair
in Memmingerberg

Last Friday afternoon we were guests at the Memmingerberg middle school, because the school's internal training fair was held there for the first time under the title "Focus on the job".

In several information rounds, interested students and parents were able to find out about the various apprenticeships within the KUTTER Group and great discussions took place.

In order to prove our craftsmanship, we had our trade fair formwork with us and the students could try out the job of concrete and reinforced concrete workers directly.

Are you currently still looking for an exciting apprenticeship from September 2023? This is your chance!

Construction rally

Visiting our

Last Friday we had two classes from the Amendingen middle school visit our training workshop in Mindelheim. At various stations, the students were able to get to know the various apprenticeships at KUTTER a little as part of our construction rally.

It was bricked, paved and laid main lines. Guided by our trainees, the young people had a lot of fun doing the practical work. We are pleased to be able to arouse the students' interest in construction training and an internship with us through our construction rallies.

By the way: We offer internships on an ongoing basis. Even without taking part in our construction rally, interested parties can find out more about an internship with us on the KUTTER website. Simply apply at www.kutter.de/karriere.


to our trainees
on their successful completion

We are very pleased that six of our trainees have successfully completed their training.

Congratulations to Veronika Konrad, who will work for KUTTER as an industrial clerk after a shortened apprenticeship. Congratulations to our automotive team, Lukas Bucher and Michael Mayer, they have successfully completed their training as agricultural and construction machinery mechatronics technicians, and Michael Lehrer, our commercial vehicle mechatronics technician. We also welcome Berkay Bektas and Felix Kunze to our team as fully trained road builders in civil engineering and road construction.

The trainers are very proud and we look forward to continued good cooperation with the skilled workers who have been taken on. 



As part of our winter school, the trainees from KUTTER & RIEBEL realized a project for our cooperation partner, the Mindelheim secondary school, in their schoolyard:

The old fountain was dismantled in order to make an outdoor chessboard made of cobblestones for the students at this point.

Many thanks go to Steffen Staps for the organization and project management and to Stefan Matt for the implementation with the trainees.

So that the newly created chessboard can also be used, the chess pieces will soon be handed over.

Come over!

Construction Rally 2023

The starting gun was fired last Friday: The Construction Rally 2023 has begun and classes 7a and 7b from the Mindelheim middle school visited us.

At various stations, such as laying walls, laying pipelines, concreting, paving, the pupils were able to get to know the activities of our training occupations relating to construction.

The stations were supervised by our trainees.

Everyone clearly had fun and we are looking forward to the other schools and classes in the coming weeks.

Speed dating

the special one

In the Türkheim middle school there was again a special kind of speed dating last Wednesday. On this evening, prospective trainees and regional companies were looking for their “perfect match”. In several rounds, the young people were able to find out about the apprenticeships on offer.

We sent Anika Sturm and Günter Wagner into the race, who answered questions from the students.

At this point we would like to thank the middle school in Türkheim for the successful campaign!

Attention: Even those who were not there that evening still have the chance of an exciting apprenticeship from autumn 2023. You can find all open apprenticeship positions at www.kutter.de/karriere and www.riebel-bau.de/karriere



trainee trip Topic
"Balance Sheet and Perspective"

Last week, the KUTTER Group apprentices of the final year spent two days in the Allgäu. The focus was on the topic of “Balance Sheet and Prospects”.

On the first day, various group work on the topic took place in the seminar house in Sulzbrunn. Content was compiled in mutual cooperation and interviews were conducted. The result was a short film that was presented to one of the managing directors of the KUTTER Group in the evening. Following this, the trainees were able to exchange ideas in a discussion group and talk about future work at KUTTER as trained specialists

On the second day there was a trip to the Kleinwalsertal to the Hoher Ifen. The aim of this trip was to build an igloo as part of a community project. Because teamwork is also required here ... as on the construction site, the first task was to get a plan, to prepare the necessary tools - the "quarry" and the construction site - and to set up the construction site before the igloo construction could begin. The result was really impressive!

We look back on two great days and wish our trainees a good final sprint and good exam results.


fire on the
company premises

Auf unserem Unternehmensgelände in Memmingen kam es am Sonntagabend zu einem Brand. Aus bisher ungeklärter Ursache fing eine Arbeitsmaschine, die auf einem Tieflader stand, Feuer. Dabei kam es durch platzende Reifen zu mehrfachen, kleineren Explosionen. 

Durch den schnellen und professionellen Einsatz der Feuerwehren Memmingen und Memmingerberg konnte ein Übergreifen des Feuers auf die Werkshalle und das Hauptgebäude verhindert werden. Weitgehende Ermittlungen sollen nun die Brandursache klären. Wir gehen von einem hohen Sachschaden aus, verletzt wurde zum Glück niemand.

Wir bedanken uns vielmals bei den Einsatzkräften von Feuerwehr, THW und Polizei.

Die KUTTER Geschäftsleitung


Also our fleet
becomes sustainable

It is very important to KUTTER to conserve energy and its resources. For this reason, we took a closer look at our largest source of energy, namely the KUTTER fleet and the mixing plants, and looked for a way to make them future-proof and energy-efficient. In order to act in a sustainable and resource-saving manner, we have to significantly reduce the amount of fossil fuels used.

That's when we came across the topic of HVO fuels. What this is all about in detail is explained to us by Dr. Markus Mohrdieck, Head of Safety and Environment at the KUTTER Group, in the detailed video.

We are pleased to be able to operate our fleet in a future-proof and resource-saving manner and we continue to strive to create sustainable solutions in all areas of the company!

social commitment

KUTTER construction company
supports Schaffenslust

The KUTTER company is characterized by a wide range of social commitments: from comprehensive social benefits for employees to the "KUTTER Green Shovel", which stands for sustainable and resource-saving action, to donations to various associations. Now KUTTER has decided to support the voluntary agency Schaffenslust in the long term as part of a membership in a sponsoring association. "It is important to us to strengthen and maintain the feeling for togetherness and social commitment in a profit-oriented everyday work", says Veronika Schwendiger, KUTTER HR Manager. “Measures for renaturation and signaling that green areas do not always have to be sealed are important to us as a construction company. If we can then present this in our local environment, we consider the campaign a success,” says Ulrich Dick, member of the KUTTER management board. Isabel Mang, head of the volunteer agency, thanks her very much for this appreciation and is delighted "that in addition to this generous donation, we also have the ability to plan, so that we can secure projects in the long term and start new ones."

The Association for the Promotion and Support of the Volunteer Agency is a recognised, non-profit, politically and denominationally independent association. Anyone can become a member. The annual minimum contribution for private individuals is EUR 30.00, for companies EUR 120.00. The membership is cancelable at any time. Further information at isabel.mang@fwa-schaffenslust.de or at www.fwa-schaffenslust.de/unterstuetzen-sie-uns.


We congratulate
our trainees!

We look forward to additional expertise in our civil engineering team:

Tobias Rehklau and Leon Göttinger (from left) have successfully completed their training as road builders and will remain with the KUTTER team with their knowledge and drive.

Instructor Markus Lobner congratulates his "protégés" on passing the exam and we wish our "new" colleagues a good start!

Big move


The KUTTER Group remains a family business and feels committed to the associated values. We will continue to stand for responsibility towards our employees, for flat hierarchies, short decision-making processes and, above all, for entrepreneurial spirit with the courage to make progress. We will continue to maintain a high level of performance and quality at a fair price level in the future and maintain a partnership with everyone involved in the construction.

Maintaining and further developing these values ​​of KUTTER as a family company is our top priority. We look forward to mastering the challenges together with you and successfully living our corporate values ​​and common goals.

Young Professionals

Our student get-together
was brought into being

Since July 2022 we have created our student regulars' table. This has already taken place three times this year at different locations.

At the first regulars' table, a visit to the retention basin in Engetried was on the agenda. The focus was on the topic of "work preparation on a construction site". Together with our civil engineering site manager Daniel Rogg, our students then went to a local inn to discuss the topic in more detail.

The second regulars' table took Armin Fäßlin (head of turnkey construction) to Lake Constance in September. Here we visited a former brewery from the 19th century on the island of Lindau. The brewery will be converted into 18 residential units, which will be subsidized by the city. Particularly impressive: a slide show showing that the building was first gutted and only the masonry including the old support beams were left. After the technical input and the impressive pictures, we strengthened ourselves with a dinner in the sailing club directly at the port. The future dual students were able to get valuable tips from the already students.

In December we visited the asphalt mixing plant in Darast near Woringen together with Simone Eichiner (Head of Asphalt Mixing Plants). Right at the beginning we climbed the tower of the asphalt mixing plant and were rewarded with a view of the entire site and a look inside the asphalt mixing plant. After descending, we went straight to the office to the mixing desk. Mr. Schwarz from the mixing plant explained the complete throughput process of the mix on the screen. Ms. Eichiner then presented the laboratory, which was newly completed in 2022: Laboratory equipment for quality assurance of the asphalt mixture and for examining the aggregates and binders were inspected. Punch and a snack brought the excursion to a successful end.


health Management

With ProPhysio we have found a competent partner for our company health management. What convinced us most about our choice was the holistic concept and the professionally trained team.

It should be particularly emphasized that the health center understands how to respond to the respective target group and, thanks to the various programs, also applies the perfect concept for the respective age group. ProPhysio supports us in the areas of exercise, nutrition, relaxation, stress management and team building.

We were pleased about the consistently positive feedback from our employees about ProPhysio. We are already planning the next health day for our trainees in the new year.

Finally again

christmas parties

Wie schön, dass dieses Jahr wieder Weihnachtsfeiern an den verschiedenen Standorten und Niederlassungen sowie in den unterschiedlichen Unternehmensbereichen stattfinden konnten.

Es gab spannende Highlights, wie beispielsweise den Keynote-Speaker Rainer Petek zum Thema „Change Management: Das Nordwandprinzip“, Ehrungen von Jubilaren und vieles mehr. Der Austausch in geselliger Runde, vor allem mit Kolleginnen und Kollegen, mit denen man sonst wenig Berührungspunkte hat, bereitete allen Freude. 


voluntary inflation
compensation bonus

As a family company, we want to stick together even in difficult times. This year, for example, we were able to express our appreciation of our employees with a voluntary inflation compensation payment.

KUTTER donates

Unterallgäu workshops
receive donation in kind

The employees of the Unterallgäu workshops are happy about KUTTER work clothing, because we have now donated our trousers and dungarees, high-visibility trousers and jackets as well as overalls to the workshops that we no longer need. These are exclusively new goods that employees are allowed to use privately. We are very happy about the great enthusiasm that our donation in kind has met with!

The Unterallgäuer Werkstätten is a business partner who takes on the laundry service for our work clothes and garden maintenance work.

We would like to thank all employees in the workshops for the good cooperation, wish you a nice pre-Christmas period and lots of fun with the clothes!

2nd national winner

Performance competition of
German crafts 2022

Congratulations to Denys-Pavlo Didyk:
After he had already completed his training as a concrete and reinforced concrete worker as the best in his exams in February, he was now also the 2nd state winner in a competition organized by the Chamber of Crafts.

The performance competition of the German skilled trades 2022 was organized in September by the Chamber of Crafts among the trainees with the best exams. For this purpose, Mr. Didyk produced a precast exposed concrete lintel, which received an award.
His former trainer Jürgen Petrich and training manager Anika Sturm congratulated the young man on behalf of KUTTER for his outstanding performance.

We are happy to employ such a capable man as an employee who enriches our team as a skilled worker on the KUTTER construction sites. Denys Didyk is also currently attending the technical school in order to gain even more qualifications.

The emergency

Great fire drill
in Landsberg

Big alarm exercise on monday evening in Landsberg: A vehicle fire has developed in an underground car park. Two people who wanted to try to put it out themselves ran into the burning building and have been missing ever since. Smoke is already coming out of the building, and explosive noises can be heard in the underground car park.

Fortunately, what sounds threatening at first is just an exercise by the Landsberg am Lech volunteer fire brigade. The aim of this complex exercise scenario is to gain safety and routine when fighting fires in underground car parks. KUTTER made one of its construction sites available for this purpose, a project by kutterhaus-WOHNKONZEPTE and is pleased to be able to support the fire brigade in this important exercise.

A few minutes after the ilsffb alerted, the first vehicles arrived at the scene. Wearing heavy respiratory protection, the attack team quickly begins to search for the missing persons, while a fire-fighting structure is being set up and positive pressure ventilation equipment is being prepared. After a short time, the first missing person is rescued and the first fire is extinguished. The search for the other missing people turns out to be more difficult in the heavily smoky and spacious underground car park, but then all the dolls are found. Finding the other sources of fire and bringing them under control is also laborious and time-consuming, as these are difficult to detect in the dense smoke of the fire. Finally, the spacious garage still has to be ventilated, because the operation can only be ended when the entire building is smoke-free!
