BAADER Insider

Some stories are just too interesting and rare to be kept to oneself. Here some of our employees share their experiences since joining us.

Horse standing in a fjord

It wasn’t even a horse

Frauke Viebranz, Controlling, Lubeck, Germany
‘I began working for BAADER in September 2011 and had only recently started when I received a call from Norway: hearing and speaking English was required. I understood that it had something to do with the fish they needed. But all I heard was “horse” ... and I was convinced I must have misheard because horses and BAADER machines just could not be right. Even after asking repeatedly, I still didn't understand my colleague and when he said he would call another colleague about it, I was really happy. 
Relieved, I hung up and told the story of my conversation and my insufficient English skills in the office. A friendly colleague started laughing and until now I thought he had always been nice. Then I heard the reason: he was referring to horse mackerel. I had never heard of horse mackerel before and from that moment on I have told this story many times and it has always made me laugh heartily.’

An unusual co-passenger

Esberto Andrade, MD, Chile
‘Closely before embarking on an Alster boat trip with customers in Hamburg, our group noticed a woman on the shore side who wanted to join us. It was Mrs Baader! Of course, we did not leave her behind. Everyone was laughing, happy to have the boss on board. That would not happen in any other company!’

We don’t sell trailers

Oliver Hahn, CEO, USA
‘Of course, there can be rough times at BAADER that require clever sales strategies. Smaller machines that fit onto a pick-up truck can be demonstrated to the customer on-site – which quite often leads to subsequent sales. To keep the machines clean we decided to transport them on an enclosed trailer. The strategy was to market the new skinner this way. Doug Morgan, a very experienced and skilled salesperson, rang me up one day to give me an update on the project. Doug: “The machine is very popular; the performance figures are partly exceeding our expectations. It is very simple to prepare the machine for production or cleaning without having to use tools, etc. In summary, the machine is great.” Me: “When can we expect the first orders?” Doug: “It’s a bit difficult at the moment since most factories haven’t budgeted for new skinners. But there is strong interest in our trailer! How much does it cost? Can we get more of them? What would be our price?” It wasn’t an easy task convincing Doug that BAADER does not deal in the transport business.’
