ENGEL AUSTRIA is donating 100,000 euros to Ukraine
Massive support among ENGEL employees
ENGEL stands united. At the Austrian plants and in many subsidiaries of the injection molding machine manufacturer, donations for people affected by the war in Ukraine have been collected within a very short time.
"We are overwhelmed, and proud of how spontaneously so many employees are getting involved and how customers and partners are also supporting our initiatives," said CEO of the ENGEL Group Stefan Engleder.
ENGEL AUSTRIA has transferred 100,000 euros to the organizations "Médecins sans Frontières (MFS)," “Nachbar in Not (Neighbors in Need)” and the Red Cross. ENGEL Germany collected 25,000 euros for the Ukrainian Parish in Hannover within 24 hours, and the donations are still coming in. The parish's network is ensuring that the money will reach the intended recipients immediately and directly.
The Eastern European subsidiaries are also showing huge personal commitment with employees taking care of refugees. For example, at the production plant in Kaplice in the Czech Republic where ENGEL employs about 100 people from the Ukraine, apartments have been provided for relatives.
"We are doing whatever is currently in our power to help people. ENGEL is a family business and also a large global family. This is something we are experiencing very strongly right now," said Engleder.
With its nine production plants worldwide and more than 30 subsidiaries — including one in Kyiv — the ENGEL Group has an international presence.
The concern and sympathy of ENGEL employees are with all Ukrainians. At the same time, ENGEL is thinking of everyone who is taking a personal risk to stand up for peace.
