After the two devastating earthquakes on Monday morning in the Turkish-Syrian border region, the number of victims has already risen to more than 11,000 dead according to official figures and many people are still missing under the rubble.

For this reason, we have donated € 5,000 to “Aktion Deutschland Hilft“. This alliance of German aid organizations provides medical supplies, food, psychosocial and financial support, hygiene packages, emergency shelters and much more in the disaster area.

You too can help, every additional donation is urgently needed.


Dear business partners,
We have decided to forego Christmas presents again this year and have instead donated to „Ein Herz für Kinder“(A Heart for Children), „Menschen in Not“ (People in Need) and the “Bärenherz Stiftung” (Bear Heart Foundation) for seriously ill children.

We would like to thank you for the pleasant cooperation and wish you a Merry Christmas and a happy, successful and above all healthy New Year.

With Christmas greetings from Pforzheim.
