On our company site we have renovated an office and production building of the distillery and liqueur factory “G. Melde” formerly based here. Since the opening in October 2012 additional 1,000 sq m of storage capacities have been available, combined with a spacious repair shop, office and staff facilities. The entire building is a demonstration object of the KNX building system technology.







“Parkeisenbahn Cottbus” gets special Christmas present

On the 6th of December 2012 a tree-thousand-Euro-cheque was handed to the “Verein zur Förderung der Parkeisenbahn Cottbus” by the company Behrendt GmbH, based in Cottbus. The money will be used for necessary repair activities.


The reason for this special Christmas present to the “Parkeisenbahn” was the big anniversary of the Behrendt GmbH company (20 years Behrendt wholesaler and 10 years Behrendt Lichtdesign). Instead of presents the company collected money in order to support the “Parkeisenbahn Cottbus”. “On occasion of our company anniversary we would like to support a landmark of our town. A ride on the “Parkeisenbahn” is a highlight for everyone, locals as well as tourists. As a technically oriented enterprise we do our share in keeping the “Parkeisenbahn” a major attraction. The reconstruction of our premises at the area of the former distillery and liqueur factory “G. Melde” is another way to improve the appearance of our town” says Kay Behrendt, Managing Director of the Behrendt GmbH.


The anniversary of our company was celebrated on the 19th of October 2012. Excellent entertainment, interesting people and delicious catering made the evening a highlight. At the same time the opening of our new, with lots of efforts renovated warehouse “Melde” was celebrated.
