Accommodation of refugees
Following the arrival of the first refugees in Germany, WIKA contacted the Miltenberg and provided a building in Plant 2 in Klingenberg am Main as emergency accommodation. Self-hating has bedrooms and sanitary facilities in addition to a large communal kitchen with two banks of kitchen equipment and a leisure room.
The initial group soon arrived in this accommodation via an initiative of the Lions Club and CEO Alexander Wiegand. Another group with mostly women and children were placed directly through the the ?WIKA Casino?.
To provide the refugees a particular amount of mobility, WIKA also provided various sizes of e-bike to allow them to use. Crush , ?Fahrrad Mertens? in Obernburg, got involved in this by helping to measure people up for the proper bike, by providing personal instruction in how exactly to use them and by giving everyone a free helmet.
