Donations instead of presents

ZÜRN GmbH & Co. KG has decided once again this year to donate the money to charitable causes instead of giving presents. The following organisations were selected this year:

These are all organizations for a wide variety of purposes. Especially in the current difficult times, which have been shaken not only by various wars but also by an economic crisis, we must stick together and support those who need it most. 💗 🤝

Milestones of our company

For a long time we have wanted to write down our history after more than 50 years of ZÜRN Group. The moving into our new and beautiful headquarters is now exactly one year ago and we have taken this as an opportunity to put up a timeline with our most important milestones in our entrance area.

You can find more about this under „History“.

German Unity Day 2023

On the occasion of this year’s 33rd anniversary of the unification of Germany, we were again invited to the German Embassy in Ljubljana. As the bundeskanzler so beautifully said, “33 years ago today, confidence united our country” and that German unity was our great good fortune. He also speaks of standing together and relying on the fact that Germany is a strong country with a globally competitive economy, a highly developed welfare state and openness to the world. We also strive to continue this with our relationship to Slovenia and our partners there. 🤝🌍

Thank you for the invitation Adrian Pollmann und Natalie Kauther. 💙

Conference of the Slovenian Foundry Society 2023

The ZÜRN Group attended the conference of the Slovenian Foundry Society again this year. We had the honour of meeting the President of the DLS (Slovenian Foundrymen Society) Mirjam Jan-Blazic and to discuss the current challenges and problems in our industry with the managing directors Dirk Howe and Gregor Geier of Siempelkamp Foundry in Krefeld, Germany. We look forward to being part of next year’s event in beautiful Portoroz. 🏭

Donations instead of presents

Especially in these difficult times we would like to help needy and suffering people and we would like to thank the people who are involved in these associations/organisations. THANK YOU!

Happy Easter to you and your Family

Dear business partners and friends of the ZÜRN Group,

We take the upcoming Easter as an opportunity to thank you for your unrestricted trust you have placed in us and for the excellent and successful cooperation during this difficult time.

We are looking forward to many more good conversations and business relations with you and wish you and your loved ones a few relaxing, sunny, and stress-free Easter days.

Enjoy the time with your family and stay healthy and safe!

Also in this year we refrain from giving gifts to our business friends and partners but donate for those who are lonely, desperate and in great need in these so difficult times.

We wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and for 2021 with all of our hearts only the very best, especially health.

Despite the prevailing Corona pandemic, we continue to support the TSV Rain

The TSV Rain, like many other football clubs, is currently in a difficult phase and faces major challenges. Due to the initial restrictions and the distance regulations, the training and the matches could not take place regularly with spectators and loyal fans.
But at last the matches are restarted.
After the interruption of the playing of the teams of the District League and Regional League, both parties agreed after internal discussions on the continuation of the season with so-called “ghost games”, although unfortunately the loyal fans of the TSV Rain have no spectator authorization. Thus, the regular season will be extended and the points of the games will count from September 2019 to June 2021. On the 1st September the exciting matches were finally restarted. Despite the ghost games, we are convinced that the unique fans of the TSV Rain swarm every game and support the whole team “from afar”.

Despite the Corona pandemic, the ZÜRN Group has decided to extend the sponsorship agreement between TSV Rain and Zürn GmbH & Co.KG. Thus, we remain a loyal supporter and companion of the TSV Rain.
We wish TSV Rain continued health, success and only the best and we keep our fingers crossed for successful matches and class maintenance.
