    2014-12-16 |

    Keeping a tradition alive, ebm-papst UK is sponsoring local football teams this year, too. David Jarvis, managing director of the subsidiary in England, says the reason for sponsoring the teams simply is a point of honour.


  • Japan

    Welcome to our energy-saving office

    2014-12-08 |

    The main reason for moving our office was to have more space in order to be prepared for our future growth in team members, and to have a more representative and organized office space, especially when customers are visiting. However, when searching for a new place, we made sure that the building is more “earthquake safe”, due to the frequent quakes here in Japan, last but not least:  that the new building is “greener” than the old one.  more…

    A place to rest

    2014-11-25 |

    A place to sit among young willows right by the side of the water – sounds like an ideal spot to switch off and gaze into space. 50 employees from ebm-papst Landshut accompanied by Leon Green really put their backs into the job. As part of their GreenDay activities they planted 50 young willows right by the side of the Pfettrach river to help stabilise the bank. They used a special machine to drill the holes intended to hold the trees. more…

    Well-deserved lunch break

    2014-10-30 |

    Recently ebm-papst Australia and New Zealand caught up to celebrate a belated GreenDay 2014. Here are some photos that show their activities:

    • Gardening in the front garden to get it ready for spring.
    • Archiving a lot of old documents – both physical and electronic files.
    • Everyone brought a plate with a dish that reflects his or her family’s home country for a shared lunch. It was delicious! 


  • Finland

    Berry hungry

    2014-10-20 |

    Most people would say they love nature. But most people in the western hemisphere spend only a tiny fraction of their leisure time amidst blades of grass, twigs and bushes. This is exactly why the ebm-papst Finland team decided to roam hedges and heather together, trying to spot all the precious little things nature so generously offers. Finland is blessed with an abundance of wild berries: In the bushes and behind boulders, their bright colours give them away – mountain cranberry, sallow thorn, cloudberry and many more. Industriously, the ebm-papst team picked them all, learnt where to find them and what they are called – a botanical crash course! more…

    To mark our GreenDay, the plant and personnel management of our Herbolzheim factory planted two sessile-fruited oaks on the campus of the Emil-Dörle-Verbundschule, a secondary school with both a technical and a non-technical faculty. The sessile-fruited oak is the Tree of the Year 2014 and is also called Nature’s Sanctuary, as it shelters and houses more than 50 different kinds of insects. The two young oaks are a symbol of the educational and learning partnership between the Verbundschule and the ebm-papst plant in Herbolzheim. more…
