Employees Let the Sawdust Fly

Uwe Fischer works in shaft production at the Kassel plant, and Andree Löbnitz works in Quality Assurance for final vehicle inspections at the Wolfsburg plant. What the two men have in common is their unusual hobby: in their free time, they use chainsaws to carve wooden sculptures.

“While other people may go running to recharge their batteries, I start up my chainsaw,” says Uwe Fischer, who recently spent time in his workshop making rustic signs for the Christmas market. And colleagues marvel at Andree Löbnitz’ works of art. An eagle, two owls and a herd of wild boar decorate the Wolfsburg plant.
