Charitable Engagement

Protecting humans and nature

In the moral sense of “protecting human and nature” UNIFLEX has supported charities for many years, like the following:

Human Rights Watch - is a non-governmental international organization that opposes violations of basic human rights, especialles focussing on social or gender abuse.

Refugees are being supported. UNIFLEX joins the work group Education of refugees in Karben to give with education and qualification the foundation of integration.

As a partner of Biodiversity in Hesse sustainability and protection of the environment are also important subjects for all employees and managers of UNIFLEX.

Education of refugees in Karben

Their smile is this years' Christmas gift we'd like to share with you

Our humble sharing of the hopefully positive and happy beginnings for refugees in Germany.

We thank every customer, supplier and partner for their support in this important matter.

Audomariam, Habtom and Yasin are refugees who sought to escape the prevailing situation and human rights conditions in their different countries.

They fled from East Africa for a possible secure future in Germany, and are relieved and happy to have reached Germany.

For UNIFLEX, it is an obligation and a great concern to offer Audomariam, Habtom and Yasin help and to give them a chance to integrate into our culture.

UNIFLEX started the project "We help" to offer them a professional orientation and qualification as the foundation of their integration.

Support Biodiversity

Conservation of nature is important

Uniflex-Hydraulik GmbH, one of the leading producers of premium hose crimpers in Germany, has long supported responsible interaction with nature.

UNIFLEX takes up a special position in the protection of nature and stands for tradition, long-term maintenance of value and protected nature as no one else in its sector.

In 2015, we invested in our future; in projects that pursue environmental, social and economic goals.

We consequently reduced consumption, and continue to support employees who grow their own food at a company garden. Everyone can benefit from this project, by picking vegetables from the vegetable garden or apples from our newly planted apple trees.

UNIFLEX is proud to support projects that create space for local flora and fauna.
