22.05.2018 - Climate-neutral company - GOK actively campaigns against climate change

For the years 2018 and 2019, GOK will have balanced its
pollutant emissions with so-called climate protection certificates.
In cooperation with the Focus Future GmbH & Co. KG we have
determined our carbon footprint. In order to actively combat the
greenhouse gas-induced climate GOK is supporting
a hydropower plant in Uganda.

We are one of the first companies in our industry that
compensated its emissions under the Kyoto Protocol
voluntarily and we hope that some more will follow.

04.04.2018 - Commitment is rewarded

For several years, the company GOK has adhered to the
philosophy of actively supporting its employees by providing
them with further training. “We are well aware of our employees’
potential and of the future challenges surrounding the need for
qualified technical specialists and managers,” reports Gerald
Unger, Managing Director of the company GOK. “In terms
of the forecast shortage of technical specialists, we view the
investments that we make in the training of our employees as
being a key component in securing the future of our company.”

The commitment of the company and the willingness of the
employees to take part in after-work training has recently been
rewarded. At a ceremony that took place on 02 March 2018
in Würzburg, the best graduates of the 2017 German Chamber
of Commerce (IHK) further training examinations were honoured
for their efforts.

Ms Lara Dürr was awarded the Master Prize Certificate for
her excellent efforts during her qualification as an Bachelor
Professional of Human Ressources Management (CCE).

19.02.2018 - Why the hissing noise is necessary

Who has not experienced or heard it before: You turn on the
valve of the gas cylinder and it hisses. Indeed the operator does
not smell any leaking gas, but there will be still a little queasy
feeling. Is something wrong with the gas cylinder? Maybe the
hose line is leaking?

To dispel any concerns, GOK has attended the subject matter
and explained it in the latest video tutorial. Generally you will not
have to worry about if it hisses while opening the gas cylinder
valve. On the contrary: it is even necessary for the operation.
