The local management kept the project a secret until the very end and so the joy of the staff was enormous when the protective vests were unpacked. “Everyone was incredibly surprised and grateful, our workers had very big eyes.“, the acting director at the Kharkiv plant said.
Once again, a big thank you to our colleague Dorothea, who initiated and managed the project. We sincerely hope that our partners and friends in Kharkiv will never really need the protective vests, but if they do, that it can help to prevent the worst from happening.

As a high-tech company, we believe not only in the power of research but also, in particular, in knowledge-based communication and the power of dialogue, which alone must be the basis for peaceful international economic cooperation, and we strongly condemn the use of violence.
