Philip Roltsch, Head of Logistics, is enthusiastic about the load train Factory Train from Neumaier: “Our load train here is the ‘cardiovascular system’. The heart is the production, the production chain, and the circulatory system is our load train. From the very first day that the load train was put into operation, it was able to master the tasks excellently and therefore we are more than happy with the load train that is now fully operational here”.

without my family!’ decided Arist Dethleffs in 1931 and designed the first
caravan in Germany as he, a ski pole and horsewhip manufacturer, wanted his
family around him when travelling for work for longer periods. Back then he
called the caravan a “live-in car”. The word “leisure” was not well known in
those days and a family holiday was a privilege with tourism in the early
stages of development. With the invention of Dethleffs Caravans a new era
began, especially for the company, that later on focused completely on caravan
and mobile home production.
