Press Release: Little AVL Kids Make a Big Difference

On the initiative of the Employee Engagement department and in cooperation with the AVL Crèche and AVL Kindergarten, a joint social project was launched for the first time this year: The motto was: "With and for one another, helping wholeheartedly, what a wonderful world."

With this fundraising activity, AVL shows that it takes social responsibility very seriously, because, as Markus Tomaschitz, Head of Human Resources, puts it, AVL not only takes responsibility for its own employees within the company, "this initiative also supports other people who didn't have such a good time this year." The idea was to show that by painting pictures little girls and boys can achieve very big things. The paintings were presented in an exhibition. A number of suppliers supported the initiative by making a donation to the association "Steirer helfen Steirern:" An amount of almost EUR 6,000 was raised, which will benefit Styrian families in time for Christmas. The Employee Engagement department would once again like to thank the children and the suppliers for their social commitment.

AVL is the world’s largest independent company for the development, simulation and test engineering of drive systems (hybrid, combustion engines, transmissions, electric motors, batteries and software) for passenger vehicles, commercial vehicles and large engines. AVL has more than 8,600 employees all over the world. In 2016, sales revenues reached EUR 1.4 billion.
