Hände als Team

Principles of corporate social responsibility

We treat all employees equally. The performance of each individual employee is equally important, as everyone contributes to success. We attach great importance to a positive and balanced working atmosphere and strong team spirit. That is why we cultivate a cooperative relationship with each other as well as with our suppliers and business partners.

Our professional activity is an essential part of our life. We therefore shape it in such a way that each employee is encouraged to be independent and to maintain excellent interpersonal relationships with his or her colleagues.

Hotel Velo historyOn airplanes and bicycles

The Hotel Velo will open up in 2020 in a building steeped in history which has seen some turbulent times. This history contributes an essential part to the character of the building.

1928

The former emergency landing strip in Quakenbrücker Merschland is converted into a regular airfield with a hangar for civil aviation.

1937

A pilot school is opened on the site - this is where Hotel Velo stands today.

1951

The bicycle manufacturer Kynast moves into the pilot school building and the adjacent aircraft engine hangar in the wake of demilitarization.

1968

The bicycle factory is destroyed in a major fire. Nevertheless, that year the one millionth bicycle rolls off the production line in Quakenbrück.

1980

10 million bicycles have already been produced in Quakenbrück.

1999

Kynast files for bankruptcy. In the coming years, investors try to preserve parts of the production by founding new companies. However, this chapter closes following the insolvency of Kynast-Steel GmbH in 2019.

2013

The renovation of the former Kynast production facility and its conversion into a new hotel begins.

2020

Hotel Velo with its Tante Tom restaurant opens.
