WE ARE COMMITTED
Our understanding of the word 'responsibility' extends far beyond our direct corporate activities. For this reason, we support people in our immediate surroundings and beyond and are committed to the promotion of sport in our region.
CHRISTMAS GREETINGS FROM AHP. DONATIONS INSTEAD OF GIFTS
Even in our affluent society, there are many people who fall through the cracks. That's why we forego Christmas gifts to our customers and support charitable institutions and associations in our region instead. With our "Donations instead of Gifts" initiative, we have donated more than 40,000 euros for people in need every year since 2012.
In the Ukrainian mining towns Tscherwohohrad and Sosnivka, the milk teeth of local children decay due to environmental damage and malnutrition and the elderly starve because they can't afford to buy bread. The Renate Merkle Foundation improves the quality of life of the local population through bread donations and practical support.
WE EMPHASIZE ACTION
We not only are enthusiastic about the movement of our hydraulic cylinders, but also about action in sports – on the pitch and on ice, as well as over longer distances.
Versatility, perseverance, technology– there are many points of contact between triathlete Daniela Bleymehl and APH Merkle. One especially worth seeing: the long distance world record holder plays the leading role in our current company film.
A long-term strategy in which the organization itself trains and develops its most competent performers – this sustainable approach connects AHP Merkle with SC Freiburg. Not for nothing have we already been supporting the Freiburg footballers as a classic sponsor for several years now.
We have already been avid fans of EHC Freiburg for some time. And recently, we also have actively sponsored the renamed "Echte Helden Area" (Real Heroes Arena). In this way, we not only promote sports, but also the “INITIATIVE for our new Kinder- und Jugendklinik e.V. (Children's and Youth Clinic), where seriously ill children and their relatives are the “real heroes”.
