At this year's New Year's reception of the town of Giengen, the management of TEGEL-TECHNIK was honoured with the Entrepreneur Award for its outstanding voluntary work. Mayor Dieter Henle paid tribute to the company's many years of support for local organisations and associations. In addition to TEGEL-TECHNIK, the award also honoured citizens who contribute to the well-being of the town in very different ways and are regarded as role models.
TEGEL-TECHNIK honoured by the town of Giengen for its corporate social responsibility
TEGEL-TECHNIK has been actively committed to the common good in Giengen for many years. The organisations supported include the German Red Cross (DRK), the volunteer fire brigade (FFW) including the youth fire brigade and the German Life Saving Association (DLRG). For the management, consisting of Nina, Ralf and Marc Tegel, social commitment is firmly anchored in the company philosophy. "We have always lived and worked here. That's why we want the area to be beautiful and safe," says Ralf Tegel.
Nina, Ralf and Marc Tegel are particularly pleased about the award and are proud to continue the tradition of their father and company founder. "Our father founded the company over 40 years ago. We grew up supporting other people and doing something for society," says Nina Tegel. The siblings are therefore dedicating the award to their father Walter F. Tegel, who passed away in June 2023.
The company's employees are enthusiastic about the diverse support for voluntary work. Jürgen Bader, design engineer and member of the volunteer fire brigade, is delighted with the support and reports that Managing Director Marc Tegel has already driven him to a firefighting operation himself. Benjamin Binder, a machining technician at TEGEL-TECHNIK and volunteer at the German Red Cross, is also impressed by the management's commitment: "What really impresses me about the management is that they take the time to really reach out to the organisations."
For the future, the management plans to continue its commitment to clubs and voluntary activities, thereby contributing to safety and cultural diversity in Giengen.
