Dresden…

… has become a new home. It’s a cosmopolitan city where we feel right at home.

 

GFD is…

… the largest semiconductor manufacturer in Europe and a very attractive and tolerant employer that offers a lot to its employees. Worthy of special mention is the work in the “mobile office”, which was born out of the plight of the Corona pandemic and which GF-Dresden would like to make possible for employees in the future as well. This is one of the greatest achievements for us employees in recent times.

Everybody should live as he wants to live… Life is simply COLORFUL, so black and white thinking or thinking in clusters, nationalities, gender, skin color or similar should not play a role anymore in today’s world!
