Engagement and responsibility have a high priority in our company philosophy. Ideally, business should be fun for both the customer and the entrepreneur. At the same time, responsibility towards our society and the environment must not be ignored. On the contrary – especially as an entrepreneur, environmentally friendly projects as well as regional and social projects should be supported.
It is much easier to do something good together for our fellow human beings and for the environment. Passion and sponsorships connect and a strong network supports each other. Our company philosophy – doing something for the community – also motivates us to do something that benefits everyone and can make the world a little better. Engagement connects, is fun and increases motivation. For this reason, we have made it our mission to support heartfelt projects.
Tradition, honesty, down-to-earthness and partnership are values we share with the Owls and live by at Schreier Maschinen- und Apparatebau GmbH. As a family-owned company from Friesenheim, regional ties are particularly important to us – which is why we have been a partner of the “Eulen” for years and are proud to be able to support such a committed sports club.
The Ludwigshafen “Eulen” are more than just a handball club from Ludwigshafen; with their multifaceted commitment, both on a social and sporting level, they support responsible projects such as youth development or cancer aid, with a lot of heart and soul. As entrepreneurs, we see it as our responsibility to support this association as a partner so that it can exist in the long term and thus continue to offer society a meeting place for exchange, passion and commitment. The closeness of the entire Eulen team is also unparalleled – the warmth and openness creates “handball you can touch”.
On October 1, 2017, Schreier Maschinen- und Apparatebau GmbH joined the network “Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs”. As a member of the network, we support women and men in poor countries to build up an economic existence by their own efforts. This is the key to overcoming their poverty and creating a better future for themselves, their families and people around them.
One-third of all people worldwide live in poverty. Oxfam, one of the most influential international development organizations, finds practical, innovative ways to change this: working with local partner organizations and the people on the ground, who often lack just a little start-up help to improve their lives.
The Oxfam partnership is a heartfelt project because entrepreneurship has the power to overcome poverty in a sustainable way. With their own small business, people can lift themselves out of poverty and live a life of independence and dignity. With the money they earn, they can feed their families, send their children to school, pay for medicine and medical care. They can reinvest surpluses in their businesses and create new jobs to give even more people the chance of a better future. We support all this as a member of “Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs” to make our contribution to a fairer and better world.

We introduce: our animal godchild – A donkey!
Not only humans, but also animals need supporters to lead a healthy and happy existence. In the last 2 years the “Wildpark Rheingönheim” had to stay closed for many months because of the pandemic. The income from visitors was missing, but the needs of the animals remained. What could be more natural than to take over a sponsorship for a resident of the animal park and thereby ensure its food supply?
It was not by chance that a donkey was chosen. We find many characteristics of this odd-toed ungulate in ourselves and these shape our contacts in business and private life.
The following characteristics are briefly described, for example, by the “Welttierschutzgesellschaft e.V.” (World Animal Protection Society): The donkey is a loyal partner with great nobility and special loyalty. Furthermore, he is fearless and loves social gatherings. He is clever and the apparent hesitation is a weighing of the situation – fits!
We support the Elias Hospice in Ludwigshafen because this facility can be the most important station in the last stage of life for people with serious, incurable illnesses – palliative care. According to the motto “Caring for all senses”, the hospice offers space for the last journey, with the aim of the greatest possible quality of life, dignity and participation for the patients.
The outpatient and inpatient care provided by qualified paliative staff, whose profession is at the same time a vocation, tailors its services to the needs of the patient and his or her relatives, and improves the quality of life of the patients to be accompanied through professional and individual support.
Heinrich Pesch Haus
Our tree godchild – a thick and plump sweet cherry
As early as November 2020, a meadow orchard was planted in the grounds of the Heinrich Pesch House, which not only blossomed beautifully in 2021, but also bore its first fruit. All of them are historic fruit varieties that have almost been forgotten. A large number of shrubs and roses were also planted, and a wildflower meadow was sown. So that the animal inhabitants don’t just have to watch, the whole thing has also been equipped with a large insect hotel and some nesting boxes. A wonderful idea, which we have supported very gladly, initiated by the association of the friends and sponsors. The meadow orchard is freely accessible and all planted trees and shrubs are displayed on a large information board. A visit is worthwhile!
