Achieving more together: Marantec Company Group supports children and their families affected by the 2021 floods

Marienfeld, December 22, 2021 - The year 2021, which is coming to an end, was characterized by many positive encounters, joint projects, and inspiration for us as the Marantec Company Group. We would like to share the joy of a successful 2021 with people who have fallen on hard times through no fault of their own. It was with great sadness that we saw the images that reached us in the summer from the flood regions in Germany. Many people died, many more lost their livelihoods and all their possessions.

Children and young people are particularly hard hit. We therefore want to help them and are supporting the flood disaster relief project of the Herzenssache e.V. association for affected children, young people, and their families with a donation of 10,000 euros. As a group of companies, we would like to make a contribution to opening up new perspectives for these young people. 

Connecting companies and people – in 2021, this mission was once again the focus of many internal and external projects of the Marantec Company Group. Taking the idea of cooperation to medium-sized companies and meeting like-minded people there was one of the most enjoyable experiences that many of our employees had this year. 

We received (and gave) numerous impulses not only with the start of our membership in Maschinenraum, the innovation ecosystem in Berlin. Cooperations beyond our industry and the SME sector have also helped us on our way through the transformation from an industrial to a digital company. 

The Marantec Company Group has also grown internally. We have convinced new talents of our cause and made promising contacts. 

Our CEOs, Kerstin Hochmüller and Andreas Schiemann, have promoted our vision of an open and networked SME in numerous podcasts, articles and with their own contributions, and have initiated new projects.

We have set ourselves a number of goals for 2022 like implementing many of the ideas and concepts we have developed this year in the coming year. In doing so, we want to remain faithful to our mission and take many partners - established and new - with us on our journey into the future. We are looking forward to it.

Everyone we met, worked with, and learned from in 2021 we wish a Merry Christmas and all the best in the New Year. We have again come up with something special for the Christmas season:

She co-founded and served as CEO of kopfstand GbR in 1999, and in the subsequent years, she was responsible for marketing strategy and innovation projects for various well-known companies and start-ups.

During his training as an electrician, he first took on responsibility in his parents‘ company, and then founded his own company in the field of light planning and projections. He expanded his technical skills by acquiring extra-occupational training as a merchant for trade and industry before joining Marantec in 2002 as sales area manager in Hanover. After a brief stint as a sales and marketing manager at Schüco Alu Competence, Schiemann returned to the Marienfeld-based operator manufacturer as a sales manager – first for Marantec, then for the group of companies.

Schiemann’s working style is characterized by his drive to break new ground. With his inspiring manner, he is a strong initiator for the establishment of unconventional network structures and cooperation in German medium-sized businesses.
