The built environment is Rapp's constant. Nevertheless, the focus and spectrum of action have adapted to social and technical developments. It is the people who have shaped the Rapp company and brought it forward. Our forefathers have always understood how to respond to the needs of customers, how to react to crises, how to use technical progress and how to involve employees.
For our 125th anniversary, historian Tobias Ehrenbold has compiled our company history in a book. Based on research in the company archives, earlier records and descriptions by contemporary witnesses, he has succeeded in outlining our company history without claiming to be chronologically complete. The result is exciting episodes of a versatile company and descriptions of courageous, committed and socially minded protagonists. As a historian, the author of the book commissioned by us has a different perspective. We often see things technically and focused on numbers. He puts the projects in the context of their time. We thank all those involved for their contribution. The result is a contemporary document that we hope you will enjoy as well.
