Family Company Messer supports German courses for refugees

November 2015 family company Messer organised its first Christmas market on the Messer-Platz square in Bad Soden. Today, the company donated the proceeds from its sales of mulled wine and waffles, totalling EUR 2,500, to the town of Bad Soden to fund further German courses for refugees. Stefan Messer, owner and CEO of the Messer Group, handed over the cheque to Norbert Altenkamp, Mayor of the town of Bad Soden, Hermann Zengeler, Head of the Citizens’ Service and Culture Department, Carina Ott, Refugee Coordinator.

“Deine Chance”, or “Your Chance”, is a project by the “evangelische Familienbildung Main-Taunus” (Main-Taunus Evangelical Family Education), which organises German courses for refugees and currently offers these in various locations around Bad Soden.

Messer itself employs some 5,400 members of staff in 31 countries, and strives towards successful intercultural cooperation in its day-to-day operations. The company is currently assessing the employment opportunities for refugees in Bad Soden.
