Responsibility. Made in Bietigheim-Bissingen.
Dürr Dental aims to be a sustainable company. Thanks to our exemplary company succession, we’ve been honoured with the German Entrepreneur Award (Deutscher Unternehmer Preis). In our opinion, we don’t just have a responsibility towards our customers and ensuring that we achieve a good business result; we also have to answer to the environment and society.
This is how we discharge our responsibility:
- Within the company:
We increasingly rely on geothermics and solar power for our energy needs. Our production facilities and service centre are fitted with a photovoltaics plant. Geothermal energy from a depth of up to one hundred metres provides additional energy for heating and non-potable water.
- In the region, for the region:
We support the non-profit Theo-Lorch-Werkstätten organization for people with disabilities as well as engaging in sports sponsorship ranging from the Bietigheim-Bissingen Steelers national league ice hockey team to the SG BBM Bietigheim handball team and the grass-roots level SV Germania Bietigheim football team. Furthermore, we support the annual Bietigheimer Silvesterlauf and the Steinheim mz triathlon.
- Around the world:
For many years, Dürr Dental has been involved in the “Mercy Ships” charitable organization, which runs the “Africa Mercy” hospital ship in Africa. Many people in Africa have never visited a dentist. Mercy Ships helps the poorest of the poor by providing mobile dentistry clinics.
