The Schaufler Foundation sponsors talented students
The Schaufler Foundation supports students and invites recipients of the "Deutschlandstipendium" National Scholarship Programme to attend a meet and greet
Senator h. c. Peter Schaufler, CEO of BITZER SE, founded The Schaufler Foundation in 2005. ‘One of the key aims of the Foundation is to promote young people,’ explains Peter Schaufler. ‘That’s why it was immediately clear that we wanted to participate in the "Deutschlandstipendium" National Scholarship Programme, which was launched in 2011.’
Many students benefited from the practical portion of the programme last year: in 2013, The Schaufler Foundation made it possible for ten scholarship recipients to experience production at BITZER first-hand during a visit to the factory in Rottenburg-Ergenzingen. With around 3,200 employees and more than 40 branches, BITZER is the world’s largest independent manufacturer of refrigeration compressors. Just as it did last year, BITZER, the global player and so-called hidden champion, managed to impress the students today.
