As partner of the federal state Hesse, the steep GmbH has already successfully been in charge of the first German partially privatised prison in Hünfeld since the 1st of January 2006. Apart from the operation of the workshops and the coordination of prisoner employment, the staff of the steep GmbH here is also responsible for the sustenance, the psychological and pedagogical attendance as well as medical care within the prison. After the successful cooperation with the state Hesse in the prison Hünfeld, we are now also looking forward to a good cooperative partnership with the prison Heidering.
