The Mönchengladbach-based family-owned Trützschler company has created a charitable foundation: the Trützschler Foundation. The Foundation’s main focus is on supporting children and young people with learning and education, sport and exercise, and science and research.

“As part of the fifth Trützschler generation, we have a social responsibility that we would like to express in a special way through the Trützschler Foundation,” explains Caroline Lange, who, together with Georgina Schrötgens, is a member of the Foundation’s Board of Directors. “We see the foundation as a supporter and companion and want to give something back by offering young adults equal opportunities for education and support for personal, free development,” adds Georgina Schrötgens.

Many exciting projects are already in the planning stage. The initial focus is on supporting local educational and sports projects for children and youths in the Mönchengladbach area. In the long-term, the Foundation also wants to get involved beyond the limits of Mönchengladbach. At its production sites in USA, Brazil, India and China, Trützschler has been supporting charitable projects for many years, such as the German Language and Culture Foundation in North Carolina or the Trützschler Training Academy in India.

Social commitment as part of the Trützschler DNA

Social commitment and the dedication to sound training opportunities for youths and young adults have a long tradition at Trützschler: Ever since the company was founded more than 130 years ago, Trützschler has promoted civic engagement. At the parent plant in Mönchengladbach, young people have been accompanied on their way to their first vocational qualification for more than 70 years. The special value orientation and partnership for which the company stands are also reflected in the personal motivation of those involved: “I consider voluntary work as an absolute enrichment. Making an active contribution to the lives of many children and young people also expresses my personal gratitude,” says Caroline Lange.
