Waldmann supports the Schwenninger Wild Wings as official Platinum Sponsor
The Schwenningen Ice Hockey Club and Waldmann have a long-standing relationship. Supporting the regional club has always been a matter close to the Waldmann family's heart. Christoph Waldmann, our fourth-generation Managing Director, also grew up with the Wild Wings - he continues the close connection and passion for ice hockey.
Even when the Schwenningen Wild Wings were still in the top league, Waldmann was one of the supporters. His passion for the sport was kindled by Liselotte Waldmann, the grandmother of our current Managing Director. She passed on her passion for sport to her family - right through to the youngest generation. Because her great-grandchildren are already enthusiastic when it's time to say: Let's go, Swabians, let's go!
