Resource savings converted into apple trees
We stand by our customers with full commitment and passion. Our aim is not only to satisfy you, but to advise you as best as possible. We have maintained customer proximity and customer contact since the founding of Karcher GmbH in 1991. Our employees at the company headquarters in Bad Rappenau are not the only ones who make sure of this; our sales representatives are personally available to provide advice and assistance.
It is our personal concern to continuously improve ourselves in order to support you. That is why customer orientation is one of the most important basic values of our company. Your customer feedback is very important for us to constantly improve and implement optimizations.
As a responsible family business, we constantly strengthen our employees in their training and further education. We cultivate a polite and respectful relationship with each other, which ensures a pleasant working relationship. It is our goal to create a working environment based on partnership for our employees.
In order to promote a good working atmosphere among each other, events are organized several times a year with and for our employees. In addition to special excursions for trainees, the cooperation is also promoted by, for example, barbecues.
We use green energy! Since 2012 we have been producing and using our own solar power via our 120 KW roof system.
Since 2013 we do not use order processing in paper form. The conversion to digital processing not only saves paper, but also reduces the consumption of resources.
In the EU alone, more than 25 billion tons of waste are produced annually. That's why we do our part to generate less waste and recycle it properly. Thanks to our cooperation with Interseroh, we have been able to save around 715 tonnes of resources and around 82,290 kilograms of greenhouse gases since 2013.

Never before in the history of mankind have CO2 emissions been as high as they are today. Due to our flourishing economy, many resources are becoming increasingly scarce. Since a few years renewable energies have become an important and still topical issue to protect our and many species' and insects' habitat. Therefore, we at Karcher Design feel obligated to do our part for a green planet. Therefore, in addition to our own solar power, we purchase green electricity and green gas.
As part of one of our many training projects, our trainees have been given the task of building an insect hotel. This will find its place on the green fruit meadow on the company parking lot. This already offers enough green space with many flowers, bushes and fruit trees.
Behind our warehouse there is a catchment basin in the form of a small pond for rainwater. This small biotope creates additional habitat for insects.
Karcher Design becomes even greener. For the coming year we are planning an electric filling station on our premises in Bad Rappenau. The electric filling station will then supply our environmentally friendly electric cars with the necessary electricity in the future. In addition to electric vehicles, it is planned to replace pure fuel vehicles with hybrid models.
