Wiesbaden and the Rhine-Main area are our home. We benefit from the fact that this region is doing well. That's why we want to give something back and contribute to the strengths of the site. Therefore, Eckelmann supports regional initiatives in the area of sports and for the promotion of young talent.
Corporate responsibility and sponsoring
Young people are our future
As a sustainably oriented company in automation technology, we rely on clever minds. That is why we care so much about young, who take a special interest in science and technology.
We maintain close contacts with the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (ETiT) at the TU Darmstadt. Eckelmann sponsors, for instance, the annual prize for the best bachelor thesis at ETiT. At the big graduation ceremony, a member of our Executive Board will award the Eckelmann AG Prize for the best thesis in the program.
We also sponsor the Wiesbadener Leonardo Award. We are thrilled about the projects of this competition. It is amazing what students in Wiesbaden are accomplishing.

As a technology company, we especially support the subject area M.I.N.T. (Mathematics, computer science, natural sciences, and technology).
Board member Dr. Ing. Marco Münchhof: "We are convinced that this commitment will benefit our region. And we hope to make first contacts with tomorrow's job starters that way. As a company with high value added in the field of engineering, we have a lot to offer to our society."
Sport is important
Sport keeps us physically and mentally fit. In competition and teamplay we learn new things about ourselves and our fellow men. Together we master athletic challenges and are happy about small and big victories. As a company, we want to motivate our employees to take part in sporting initiatives and promote Wiesbaden as an attractive place for physical activity.
Since 2005, the companies of the Eckelmann Group have competed with several other teams in a 25-hour race organized by the society for the promotion of sports in Wiesbaden. This is always a great experience for all colleagues, who sign up as runners, helpers or visitors. Of course, we are also a regular sponsor of this event.
Board member Philipp Eckelmann: "We would like to make our contribution to the promotion of sport in Wiesbaden through the Wiesbadener Sportförderung e.V. This organization supports and accompanies outstanding Wiesbaden athletes. At the same time, their successes give new impulses for development of the many sports clubs in Wiesbaden.”
