Humanitarian Prize for MAN
MAN embraces diversity: this year, the Humanitarian Prize awarded by the Lebenshilfe Nürnberger Land foundation went to MAN Truck & Bus AG’s engine plant in Nuremberg. The site has been working with Lebenshilfe in Nuremberg for around 20 years, demonstrating its commitment to social issues in the city.
The charity’s prize is awarded every five years to individuals or organizations rendering outstanding services to people and support in their lives. Dr. Ulrich Dilling, Head of the Nuremberg plant, accepted the prize and emphasized just how important it is to MAN Truck & Bus: “Lebenshilfe supplies rocker arms for engines with a standard of quality that many other suppliers should take as an example. The dedication to fellow human beings and the high level of professionalism as a supplier work well together at Lebenshilfe Nürnberger Land.” The supplier relationship between the disabled workshop and major commercial vehicle manufacturer MAN has become normality. He went on to say: “We will maintain the relationship and hope that the partnership will continue for a long time.”
This commitment to society is also rooted at other MAN Truck & Bus sites. Colleagues in Steyr and Salzgitter also cooperate with the Lebenshilfe foundation. More than 20 intellectually disabled people work side by side with MAN Truck & Bus employees in prepackaging at the Steyr site, for example.
