We support “Emergency Aid Ukraine”!

After the war against Ukraine started a week ago, the destruction in the country and the suffering of the people who fear for their lives and their future are already enormous. In addition, large parts of the population are already fleeing and the number is increasing every day.

That's why we donated €5,000 to "Aktion Deutschland Hilft". This alliance of German aid organisations provides medical supplies, food, psychosocial and financial support, hygiene packages, emergency shelters and much more in the war zone.

You too can help, any further donation – financial or material – is definitely welcome.

Christmas party at the Calypso dinner show in the Pforzheim Gasometer

A special highlight was Christmas party, which this week took place at the Calypso dinner show in the Gasometer Pforzheim. The employees were able to experience a true "feast for all the senses" in a grandiose ambience.

Calypso was a successful combination of a spectacular show, culinary enjoyment and an elaborate light and sound staging. The Parkhotel Pforzheim's kitchen conjured up a fine four-course menu. Between the individual courses, the acrobatic, artistic and dance performances by international top artists on a 360 ° stage were a delight.

Truly a feast for the senses and a wonderful and extraordinary evening that colleagues will not soon forget.

We support the socio-pedagogical residential communities in Karlsruhe

At the suggestion of our employee Markus Doerflinger, this month we are supporting the Sozialpädagogische Wohngemeinschaften Karlsruhe, a facility run by Reha-Südwest gGmbH, with a donation of 5,000 euros.

In one of the residential groups, his son Tim is cared for full-time along with numerous other residents due to his complex impairment. The primary goal of the staff and caregivers is to offer the children and young people a family situation and an atmosphere "just like home". A new building is currently under construction and is expected to be occupied this year. This opens up a wide range of possibilities for a meaningful use of our donation - which thus directly benefits the residents.

Another donation for Aktion Deutschland Hilft!

200 million women and girls worldwide - mostly in Northeast, East and West Africa, but as many as 50,000 in Germany - suffer almost their entire lives from the consequences of female genital mutilation (FGM). Since 2003, every year on February 6, the international day against female genital mutilation, attention is drawn to this crime, which is considered a violation of human rights and is punishable in most countries.

Aktion Deutschland Hilft campaigns worldwide for the rights of women and girls, and also the company Sigrist from Pforzheim supports them with a donation of €5,000.

The air is clean - and virus-free!

For a few days now, four new devices called "iO+" have been ensuring a pleasant indoor climate "like fresh air" in our production and administration departments. They also eliminate 99.9% of all viruses, particles and pollutants. This is realized by a patented process combination. With the help of UV lamps, electrostatic and catalytic filtration, the air is treated to "zero contamination" in the first step. In the second step, an effective combination of ionization and activated oxygen ensures that the room air itself acts as a protective barrier, removing all aerosols, particles, viruses from the air at the point of origin.

The technology was developed by Proactiveair GmbH and partners as a contribution to eliminating the risk of infection in rooms with a high frequency of people. Of course, it is not only suitable for offices, but also for living rooms, restaurants, day-care centers, schools and medical practices.

 

Detailed information about the company and the revolutionary technology of the "iO+" can be found at www.proactiveair.de  - We are convinced, just try it!

We have supported "Aktion Deutschland hilft" with a donation of 5,000 € as emergency aid for Yemen and hope to make a small contribution to improving the situation in Yemen.
