On a social mission
Research and development cost money. A medium-sized company like the East Westphalian drive manufacturer Marantec Antriebs- und Steuerungstechnik GmbH & Co. KG knows only too well. Normally, sales staff like Jürgen Stoller and Dirk Arnold, who are on the road for the company in the Rhine-Main area and southern Germany, sell innovative drive solutions. Now, in January 2022, they were on a different mission: the two sales area managers presented our foundation’s managing director, Marcus Klüssendorf, with a donation from the company in the amount of 1,600 euros.
The donation was made on the initiative of the two Marantec sales representatives, who used an internal employee competition to draw attention to the good cause. No matter which of the two came out on top: In the event, they wanted to forego their own prize money, especially since the success “was definitely a team effort, which was actively supported by the colleagues in the internal sales department”, Jürgen Stoller emphasises. Instead, he suggested that Marantec make a donation. This suggestion met with benevolent approval from the company.
A heartfelt THANK YOU to the two initiators and Marantec for this great commitment.
