DAILY BREAD FOR CHILDREN - An initiative of KiFaz and Waldmann
the Black Forest-Baar district, the home of Waldmann, there are more
than 2,400 children living in poverty. We
would like to change this situation. Together with the Children and
Family Center (KiFaz) in Villingen-Schwenningen, Waldmann initiated the
campaign “Daily Bread for Children” on February 22nd, 2008. Wherever we
are active, we want to make sure that children receive a warm lunch.
With this commitment
we strive to create a continuous partnership that will bring a new,
bright light into the hearts of disadvantaged children.
We invite you to help, too.

Glare-free lighting for visually handicapped children
Good lighting is very important for visually handicapped people. For this reason it is only natural for us – as a leading manufacturer of lighting concepts – to make sure that the smallest members of society are also provided with optimal lighting. Especially for homework, but also during playful activities, it is important for them to be able to use their reduced vision in the best possible way. That’s why a complete lighting system was donated to the foundation St. Franziskus Heiligenbronn for the facilities of the new day group "Benjamin" at the Eyesight Promotion Center.
Training and continued education have a high priority in our organization
Motivated employees who identify themselves with the goals of their company are productive people. Thanks to the great in-house production depth at Waldmann, many different occupations requiring training and qualification can be offered. Many of the best employees started their career at Waldmann from the very beginning and learned their profession from scratch. They are deeply rooted with the company and, due to its flat hierarchical structure, feel like entrepreneurs themselves. It’s exactly this mutual trust upon which Waldmann’s success is based – the human factor.
Clear commitment to the location Villingen-Schwenningen
"Made in Germany" – these three words stand for commitment, reliability and engineering genius in the whole world. Waldmann grew up in this environment and has established itself internationally as a technology leader. This commitment to its roots, the location Germany and particularly Villingen-Schwenningen, is an essential part of the company’s identity. Because this is where quality is intensively “lived”.
EDUCATION & SCIENCE:
Promoting young talent is guaranteeing the future
Our future lies in hands of our young people. For this reason Waldmann maintains active relations with schools and universities in the region. For example, in course of their cooperative activities pupils can learn about the excellent job opportunities technical occupations have to offer.
For those who have already made a decision to follow a certain profession, Waldmann stands ready as an experienced and competent partner in education.
Children get enthused about technical things
Childrens’ thirst for knowledge is enormous. That’s why more and more kindergartens and day-care centers provide children an opportunity to explore technical and scientific topics at their own level. Waldmann supports to awaken interest in these subjects and regularly carries out exciting experiments with the little researchers on the topic of light. That's the way how children get inspiring anwers to their innumerable questions.
Waldmann supports students at the State University for Music in Trossingen
In the south of Baden-Wurttemberg, Waldmann’s home territory, the State University for Music in Trossingen is engaged in a far-reaching cultural mission. Here, too, Waldmann is active as a member of the sponsoring association of the university.
Cultural offerings in the region
As a company deeply rooted in the region, Waldmann regularly supports local cultural events that add to and enrich the existing spectrum of recreational activities for the people living in the region of Schwarzwald-Baar.
Waldmann supports the Schwenninger Wild Wings as official main sponsor
Waldmann is also quite a sports fan, actively supporting local clubs and their talented young players. Thanks to this support, optimal conditions were established during the last decade that now allow SERC to offer its up-and-coming players the best possible training. The large number of well-trained coaches and games being played in Germany and at internationally recognized youth tournaments resulted in several junior players being appointed to DEB national youth teams and to the premier team as well as repeated victories for the various lower league youth teams.
