Global responsibility - local focus
Helping people in difficult living conditions has always been a central concern for the family-owned company Brose. We deliberately focus our social commitment on the areas surrounding our locations. This allows us to provide our support where we have an insight into individual needs and challenges due to our immediate proximity.
Sustainable support for immigrants in Coburg
Brose has been sponsoring the City of Coburg's coordination office for people with an immigrant background since 2016. It makes it easier for immigrants to get started in Germany and helps them gain a foothold in everyday life. In 2019 alone, the counseling center provided comprehensive support to more than 60 asylum seekers and around 700 other migrants.
More than a home for Mexico's children
In 2012, the home "Alegría de los Niños" was founded near our Mexican location El Marqués. Here, the children receive psychological care and basic schooling at the same time. Brose has supported the initiative from the very beginning. In addition to regular financial support, our plant organizes a Christmas party every year at which Brose employees visit the orphanage and present the children with gifts.
School education in Curitiba
Since 2005, our Brazilian site in Curitiba has been supporting the Cyro Pelizzari social and educational center as a partner of the local government of Sao José dos Pinhais. The project provides education and training for hundreds of children and young people from socially disadvantaged families every year. Brose helps financially, but also donates books, organizes visits to theaters and museums and hosts an annual Christmas party.
A better and more inclusive society
The "Inclusion Factory" project, which is unique in China, is a workshop for people with mental or physical disabilities and is supported by around 80 cooperation partners from Europe, including Brose since 2018. With the help of special devices and machines, the "Talents with Disabilities" can produce competitive products and thus pursue regular employment in the workshop. The goal: the diverse and meaningful employment of people with disabilities in order to integrate them as full and respected members of Chinese society.
