Social commitment: On site and around the world

As a large employer, it is important to us to take responsibility in sports, culture and social matters. At our main location in Münster and worldwide.

In addition to our commitment to our planet in terms of sustainability, we also assume social responsibility. Children and young people are particularly important to us, so that as many young people as possible have the same opportunities for a fulfilling life. That is why we support numerous social projects worldwide.

We provide technical and financial support to schools and universities located near our 23 locations. A wide range of internships is also intended to give pupils and students an insight into the professional opportunities at Hengst. As a manufacturing company, we primarily focus on girls and young women, who are unfortunately still underrepresented in the so-called STEM professions. Our goal is a balanced relationship and the same starting conditions for everyone.

It is also important to us that we give something back to society locally. In the vicinity of our branches, we support clubs and events in top and popular sports as a sponsor. Because we are convinced that sport has a direct influence on health and well-being. We also support cultural and charitable institutions and associations.

With the promotion to Germany's second-tier Pro A, Hengst and the Uni Baskets from Münster (formerly WWU Baskets) have extended their partnership until 2025. The free tickets to the home games are very popular among the workforce.
Hengst supports the Münster Marathon as a sponsor. In addition, many employees run the full distance or in relays. The short run as part of the marathon has been called Hengst-Filtration-28 since its introduction in 2022.
Hengst is a sponsor of the Sparda Münster City Triathlon and also provides some starters from its own staff every year.
Since 2019, Hengst has been the jersey and perimeter sponsor of the WWU Baskets from Münster.

A special place with us: The association Herzenswünsche e.V.

At the heart of our charitable commitment is the nationwide association Herzenswünsche e.V. The association has set itself the task of fulfilling the heart's desires of seriously ill children and young people in Germany. It is intended to give them strength for recovery and to distract them from everyday hospital life. Whether it's a trip, meeting your favorite star or an adventurous experience, the Herzensfreunde association does everything it can to make this dream come true for children and young people.

The Herzenswünsche e.V. association was founded by Wera Röttgering, daughter of the company founder Walter Hengst. With a total of 70 voluntary and full-time helpers, the association now fulfills at least one heart's desire every day.
