As a local, mid-sized family business, we are a global player in the automation industry and also have deep roots in our region. We are grateful for our resources of reliable, hard-working employees and the innovative spirit that they offer us. Through our social engagement in the region, by supporting clubs and associations and aiding local institutions, we want to give something back to society.
Working together with universities
We take our obligation as a training company very seriously and have around eight to ten trainees and six students from cooperative state universities every year. In our view, it's natural to offer them permanent employment after they complete their training. We regularly support universities and educational institutions through sponsorships because we are convinced that vocational training is one of the most important pillars of our society and economy.
WEISS Technology Foundation
Behind our social responsibility, there is also the will to get young people excited about topics such as STEM and digitalization and help prepare them for the future by being a reliable and innovative employer. Young people and the young generation are our future. Their smiles and fascination for technology are priceless. This is why CEO Uwe Weiss established the WEISS Technology Foundation. The executive board of the WEISS Technology Foundation is made up of employees of the WEISS Group and works on a voluntary basis. The foundation board, as the controlling body, consists of renowned figures from the region in the areas of education and local politics and also works on a voluntary basis. Our income consists exclusively of donations. This creates genuine future prospects for young people worldwide, and we want to continue working on this.
