Koenig & Bauer signals commitment to an open-minded and tolerant societyFebruary 5, 2020
At the beginning of 2020, the Koenig & Bauer Sheetfed business unit in Radebeul joined a growing number of globally active companies and organisations from the region in the association “Businesses for a Cosmopolitan Saxony”. As a member of this association, the company will be supporting a range of concrete measures aimed at promoting the integration of refugees and migrants in local business and industry.
Already in the past, Koenig & Bauer has placed its weight behind efforts to promote democracy and tolerance and to assist the integration of refugees. In 2015, for example, two young refugees from Pakistan, who had been forced to flee their home country for political and religious reasons, were accepted into vocational training at the company and began an apprenticeship as mechatronics technicians. After passing the final examinations set by the Dresden Chamber of Industry and Commerce last year, they were subsequently offered permanent contracts to work in the press assembly centre.
