Sustainability

RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR ENVIRONMENT

We pay strict attention when designing and making our drives to low power consumption, the sparing use of materials and long service lives. That way we minimise their impact on the environment throughout their entire life cycles.

A reason to develop the highly-efficient small ROSYNC motor in 2008. One single ROSYNC motor prevents up to 150kg of CO2 per year, 200-times its own weight. He won the ‘preis umwelt unternehmen: Nordwest 2009’ .

BEES ON THE ROOF

In September 2018 we set up two bee hives on our factory roof. The 120 000 bees provides the beekeeper of Bremerhaven Andreas Bredehorn.

And we continue a Treusch family tradition. Our grandfather Wilhem Treusch had four beehives in his beekeeping in Überau.

CREATE BIODIVERSITY

To protect and conservate biological diversity we have started to make our company premises animal-friendly and blend in with nature.

The first step was a wild flower meadow behind the building. We will also soon plant four apple trees in it. In the front of the building there are now shrubs like catnip, evening primrose and others that provide food for insects.

Some shrubs, another apple tree and ground cover will be added in the autumn.
