In view of the fact that Vossloh had been a decentralized organization until mid-2014 and underwent fundamental restructuring up to the end of 2017, there is currently no Group-wide concept for social aspects. Also, the contributions made to the community by the individual corporate entities at the various sites are not systematically recorded, and it is therefore not currently possible to make statements for the business units or division in this regard.
Individual companies traditionally support civic society at their respective locations in a variety of ways. In Werdohl, for example, Vossloh Fastening Systems worked closely with local schools again in 2017 as part of the “Initiative Technik” (Technology Initiative). Vossloh Rail Services lent its support to a number of aid organizations in Hamburg in 2017. A large number of Vossloh employees also got involved in their local communities in their free time.
Additionally, Vossloh’s research and development departments in particular collaborated with a number of universities and research institutes at varying levels and in various constellations, including in Germany, France, Sweden and the U.S.
