As a company with a long tradition, horizont is aware of its social responsibility and is involved in many social projects in the region and beyond. Here you can find some of our most interesting projects of the past years.
The flood disaster in July 2021 destroyed a lot of livelihoods and cost the lives of animals and people. horizont, in cooperation with the company Elektro Saure, launched an appeal for donations for animal husbandry products and was able to receive many donations. In addition to the donations received, horizont also donated a van full of electric fencing products. The donations were handed over to the feed aid NRW Rheinland-Pfalz and thus could benefit the people and animals in need.
Also our trainees are regularly involved in charity work and support various organisations on a voluntary basis. This year, four of our trainees were at the Edersee Wildlife Park and spent a day there helping to feed the animals, build new enclosures and clean up from previous woodwork.
To stop the pandemic and protect our employees and fellow human beings, we held a vaccination campaign in June and July 2021. Anyone who wanted to could get a free vaccination from our company doctor. The campaign was a complete success and we hope to have made a decisive contribution to fighting the pandemic.
Circus Gebrüder Barelli were struck hard by the pandemic and the resulting lockdowns. They were unable to generate any income for several months. horizont therefore supported them with an in-kind donation of new animal husbandry products so that the circus family's 40+ large animals can be cared for.
For several years horizont has supported the organisation LOGOS Global Vision e.V. from Korbach and diligently packs parcels in November for needy children in Romania. The children often have never received a gift for Christmas, so horizont wants to help and put a little smile on their faces. The packages are brought to Romania by LOGOS before Christmas together with other aid supplies and distributed to the children by volunteers. The campaign takes place every year in November and participation is open to everyone.
We are always particularly pleased when we can support schools in the area with donations. The students of the MPS Sachsenhausen will work with horizont soldering stations in the future. horizont has donated several soldering irons to the school and can thus support their work.
