BINDER gets behind “Tuttlingen in bloom” campaign
At BINDER GmbH in Tuttlingen, Germany, huge emphasis is placed on environmental protection. After all, the simulation chambers produced in Tuttlingen are all created with the key goal of achieving the perfect climate.
However, the environment isn’t just a central consideration when it comes to manufacturing BINDER chambers – it also takes center stage in other projects close to BINDER’s heart. Following the recent planting of trees on the company premises, BINDER GmbH has lent its support to the “Tuttlingen in bloom” campaign by donating 1,000 euros to the project.
The symbolic check was presented to project initiator and music school head teacher Alfons Schwab by Ingrid Binder, the wife of company owner Peter Michael Binder. Patron and Tuttlingen Lord Mayor Michael Beck, who initiated the contact with Alfons Schwab, was also present at the celebration. It was a particular pleasure to see Aylin Demirkaya at the ceremony, who together with her sister Aleyna has been an avid supporter of the project on the banks of the Danube right from the word go. The sisters’ father Vedat Demirkaya is part of BINDER’s extensive research and development team.
How was it, then, that music school head teacher Alfons Schwab came to plant 140,000 bulbs together with 1,000 primary school pupils back at the start of October? “It’s quite simple,” explains Tuttlingen-born Alfons, who has been an active member of the BUND association for the environment and the protection of nature for some time. “I have three grandchildren and it’s very important to me that our descendants also have a future.” Lord Mayor Beck couldn’t agree more. As patron, he has taken on a central role, acting as a powerful advocate for the project. “When we do something, we make sure we do it right,” said Beck, who also pointed out that the campaign is not only dedicated to the environment, but also to the nine-year-old boy who lost his life in an accident at the beginning of October.
Ingrid Binder added on behalf of BINDER: “We at BINDER GmbH want to do our bit to preserve our environment, support children, and help to make Tuttlingen even more beautiful.”
