Senator acquires production building in Groß-Bieberau

senator® acquires production building in Groß-Bieberau

Senator, one of the leading manufacturers of personalised promotional writing instruments and mugs, based in Groß-Bieberau, Germany, has today taken a further step in the direction of long-term corporate orientation: the largest production building of the group in Groß-Bieberau, Bahnhofstraße 57, has been acquired from the previous landlord, Merz.

Group CEO Daniel Jeschonowski is pleased: "The acquisition of the production and administration building ensures that the investments of the past three years in processes and machines are now based on solid ground. With an area of more than 20,000 m², we can now operate our printing plant, assembly, injection moulding, mug finishing and administration in a future-proof manner moving forward. This also means, for example, that we obtain the entire electrical energy for our company completely ecologically from renewable raw materials – with this we are leading the way in our industry".

In addition to Groß-Bieberau, Senator GmbH maintains subsidiary locations in the Netherlands, France and the UK. A total of 270 employees stand by the company, which was founded in 1920 and supplies promotional dealers products "made in Germany" from a 10,000 European pallet capacity high-bay warehouse, with full customisation options in short lead-times. In December 2018, 100% of the company was taken over by the Group CEO Daniel Jeschonowski and his wife Stefanie, forming again a family business which stands for continuity and reliability.

senator® continues to donate to worthy causes

senator® has always been passionate about giving to worthy causes; whether they be near or far.

Having donated pens to schools in Africa, they recently had the opportunity to help closer to home by donating branded pens to a team from their local Engineering college who were looking for branded merchandise as part of their entry in a national competition to build Formula 1 car prototypes.

 

'One of our F1 in schools teams off to a flying start in obtaining sponsorship and promotional items for their Nation Finals, a huge thank you @SenatorPens for their fabulous work!' Harlow College Engineering Team (Twitter)

 

Further to this, the team at senator® continue to raise money through its own 'tuck shop' - which since its launch over 6 years ago has raised over £8500 for good causes. This year, a cheque for £1500 was donated to local charity Haven House Hospice - which will be used towards expanding services, such as hospice at home service for children with life-limiting conditions.

 

'Only 19% of our running costs are met by the government, which means we have to raise the rest through fundraising initiatives. And so having the backing of businesses is extremely important. We are incredibly grateful to the team at Senator who have supported Haven House since 2015. Their latest donation takes their total raised to over £6,000 in total.  Their support makes a difference to the services we provide and enables us to continue giving vital care to seriously ill children and their families.' Natalie Chevin, Head of Corporate & Major Gifts

Lack of stationery an obstacle for some

Since 2005 African Vision Malawi (known as The Landirani Trust in Malawi) has been helping children and vulnerable people in Malawi, one of the poorest countries in the world.

 The charity currently supports 26 primary schools in Malawi that often have 1000 students, many of these students do not have their own pen and on average 1 pen is used between 10 students.

READ MORE: www.africanvision.org.uk/education

senator® pens responded to this in October supplying underprivileged children with the necessary stationery at Chitsime Primary School, Lilongwe Secondary School and many other students the charity sponsor at Universities.

Nigel Palmer, Chairman at African Vision Malawi said “A pen or pencil is something a lot of people don’t even have to think about, but unfortunately stationery is an obstacle to many students education in Malawi, simply because they can’t afford it.”

Andrew Hill, Managing Director at senator® pens added: “We have been supporting many local charities for over 20 years now, so for our donations to successfully reach an overseas charity has been amazing, especially after receiving some incredible feedback with photos of our pens in action.”
