The VEB Ungelsheim is currently still in the legal form of a commercial sole proprietorship. Currently, a spin-off into a family cooperative is being planned. This will be done in view of the manifold possibilities for the entrepreneurial design of collective services, which will be sorted around the unbreakable core of the family. From there the name "VEB" was chosen with care, as we see the family not only as a retreat from but also as the nucleus of: society.
Unfortunately, the whole family can no longer be included, as in the meantime some of the clan prefer to work elsewhere, for example as a beadle of the state with pension entitlement. But in my opinion - and I say this in my role as head of the family and also chairman of the cooperative - the remaining hard core represents a sufficiently competent troop.
So what do these collective achievements of our cooperative consist of?
On the one hand, the now established vinyl business will be continued and expanded. A flourishing trade with junk and branded clothes on eBay now forms a solid second mainstay. While the lucrative business idea of a Trabant-brokerage unfortunately had to give way to the meanwhile changed environmental awareness, and some initiatives, like the rental of used urns, turned out to be, we are honest, pretty much a pipe burst, we are now putting special further hope in our plans for cat tracking systems and our book projects.
It should not be concealed that our classic real estate business may also benefit from the form of the family cooperative in terms of taxes.
