Luise Deiters (1835–1909) and Josef Deiters (1826–1900), who managed the company Crespel & Deiters in the 2nd family generation and who, with their names, act as patrons for the foundation their sons initiate in 1928, which has the purpose of supporting their employees.

Creation of the Drei Hasen settlement at Groner Wald 1936
The Josef-Luise-Deiters foundation is also called into life to facilitate the creation of more individual wealth for the employees of Crespel & Deiters. With interest-free loans that are financed by the foundation, they can build houses, purchase flats or replace expensive mortgage credits. And here, too, Crespel & Deiters goes the extra mile once more. The capital is topped up by the company by another 10,000 Deutschmark. Built on the company’s property, close to Groner Wald, Crespel & Deiters’ Drei Hasen settlement, which still exists today, is erected.
In the Drei Hasen settlement, the employees of Crespel & Deiters can purchase property for a small amount of money that is large enough for a house, a vegetable garden and livestock holding . And, once again, everyone joins forces and gets down to work. With the building pit excavation in 1936, the employees work side by side toward realising their dream of an own home. After the Second World War, when living space is extremely scarce following wide-spread destruction of the cities, the Josef-Luise-Deiters foundation goes on to realise three additional living areas in Ibbenbüren, thereby also creating new living space for the employees in tough times.
Crespel & Deiters is a family company in the truest sense of the word. Not only that the company has been characterised by the family Crespel, respectively Deiters for more than 150 years. The company is, acts and also works like one large family. Early on, Crespel & Deiters strengthens the “we” feeling with mutual undertakings. The company organises company celebrations and relaxing employee excursions that strengthen the community spirit.
