Some 650,000 euros, 150 projects and countless individual happy memories have been notched up during the Rittal Foundation’s first six years. Welfare, education and culture are the three pillars of the foundation, which has been supporting social projects based near the Friedhelm Loh Group’s German sites since 2011. As the region’s largest employer, the company bears a responsibility towards members of its local community. “The focus on projects close by to the company’s sites underlines our solidarity with local people and our commitment to shaping and improving the society in which we live,” explains Friedemann Hensgen, the Chair of the Board of the Rittal Foundation. Last year, a tombola to mark the fifth anniversary raised around 30,000 euros. “This clearly demonstrates that the Friedhelm Loh Group’s employees back this good cause,” says Dr Friedhelm Loh, who launched the foundation five years ago to mark the 50th anniversary of Rittal. He continues: “It is my sincere wish that disadvantaged individuals see that we think about them and are committed to improving their lives. We want and shall continue to do this in future as well.”
