Following the sudden passing of our former chairman, father, brother, uncle and friend Bernd Szczesny more than a year ago, we received an overwhelming amount of condolences. The EWM family said goodbye with wonderful words of appreciation and loyalty.
Instead of flowers and condolence contributions, a donation account was set up at 'VOR-TOUR der Hoffnung e.V.' - the organisation's head, Mr. Jürgen Grünwald, and Mr. Hans-Josef Bracht (former Member of the Rhineland-Palatinate Parliament and Vice-President of the Rhineland-Palatinate Parliament) expressed their gratitude for the generous five-figure sum. The donation had already been transferred last year, but an official handover and thank you from the organisation could only take place now due to the Corona pandemic.
For more than 50 years, Bernd Szczesny helped to build up EWM AG and the EWM Group with great foresight and entrepreneurial courage and, not least, has made them EWM what our EWM family stands for today. The solidarity and a family atmosphere are an important part of EWM AG, which is why the condolence donations at 'VOR-TOUR der Hoffnung' in aid of children suffering from cancer and those in need of help have been made exactly to the right address and will be used in Bernd's spirit.
We would like to thank our employees of the EWM family, our customers and business partners for the extremely generous donations with which we were able to jointly support the 'VOR-TOUR der Hoffnung' organisation in aid of children suffering from cancer and in need of help.
