As an internationally active company we know how important close partnerships between students, universities and institutes are to create successful developments. This is why we collaborate intensively with the University of Bayreuth, Frauenhofer institutes and the Hof and Coburg Universities of Applied Sciences. We are a sponsor of the Germany Scholarship and also provide financial support to young specialists at the University of Bayreuth.
We are a member of the German Engineering Association (VDMA), are active in the European Sealing Association (ESA), the Chemical Industry Association (VCI) and the Bavarian Industry Association (vbw).
We are involved in our region: In the General Assembly of the Chamber of Industry and Commerce (IHK) and the “Oberfranken Offensiv” marketing initiative, as a sponsor of the Bayreuth Festival and a supporter of the professional basketball team medi Bayreuth in the Bundesliga.
We are proud to promote our region, which is one of the richest regions in the European Union (EU). According to Eurostat, it ranks 14th among 323 regions for disposable income. In other words, your money goes a long way in Upper Franconia – and the standard of living is better here than in other regions such as Salzburg, Cologne or Düsseldorf despite supposedly lower wages.
