Together for social commitment


Over the past 200 years, Wieland has not only played a leading role in the industry as a pioneer, but has also been aware of its social responsibility from the very beginning. Corporate citizenship is not a passing trend, but a fundamental value that shapes all our activities.

As a corporate citizen, our social commitment covers a wide range of social areas. Supporting local and regional projects and the people who live in the vicinity of our plants and service companies is very important to Wieland. Promoting education, science and health is just as important as supporting social institutions that positively influence the quality of life of these people.

For us, giving back means much more than just making a financial contribution. We encourage our employees to become actively involved in social projects. We also encourage them to contribute their skills and knowledge to community initiatives.

At Wieland, we are well aware of the fact that our success as a leading industrial company and our responsibility to society go hand in hand. Therefore, we think and act responsibly.



Activities in North America

Pedal the cause


Wieland is honored to be a sponsor of the 2023 'Pedal the Cause' two-day ride weekend in Chesterfield, Missouri. The mission of Pedal the Cause is to raise critical funds for cancer research through its annual cycling challenge.

Every single donation - with a special focus on seed projects to advance new ideas - goes directly to support this mission. For a world without cancer.

With eight different bike courses, a kids only challenge, the 'Taste the Cause' food event, live music, fireworks and more, the experience was a great success!

Donations and support for new fire academy


Lewis & Clark Community College is creating a new fire academy in East Alton. The college is partnering with local fire departments and high schools.

The Wieland Fire Department at our East Alton facility is supporting this effort with donated equipment and sharing knowledge.



Activities in Europe

Commitment to health and sport


Our commitment in this area is to promote mental and physical health, as well as exercise and sports. In Illerrieden, a small town near our Vöhringen site in Germany, we support the "Donauhaie" wheelchair rugby team.

We sponsored the team in the reporting year 2022/23. We supplied the team with 40 jerseys in two different designs. The members of the team from the region have been playing the sport for a long time and are now playing in the regional and national leagues. One of our employees is a member of the team, making the project all the more important.

Wieland supports Vöhringen sports club


Sport is teamwork. That also applies to Wieland. That is why we have been supporting the SCV for many decades.

The most recent donation in November 2022 will go to the club's youth department, which has around 1,000 youngsters. The money will be used to purchase a minibus to take the youth teams to their away games. Another planned purchase for the future is the conversion of the lighting system to LED.
