Kirchberg, 04/04/2024

Aenova presented the Heimstätten Wil Foundation with a cheque for 2,000.00 euros on April 3, 2024. The idea for the donation campaign was born at the Aenova Corporate Sales Meeting, which took place at the Aenova site in Kirchberg (SG), Switzerland, in February. The company already has a long-standing partnership with the Heimstätten Wil foundation.

The Heimstätten Wil Foundation offers living and working spaces for around 400 adults with disabilities. The services are geared towards their individual needs and requirements. External jobs are also offered in cooperation with companies in the primary labor market. Around 160 specialists, apprentices and interns work at the foundation.

The Aenova site in Kirchberg has been working with the Heimstätten Wil foundation since the pandemic. Back then, the pharmaceutical company commissioned the foundation to assemble Christmas hampers for its employees.

Aenova develops, produces and packages soft gelatine capsules in Kirchberg for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry, helping patients all over the world to lead healthier lives. More than two billion capsules leave the factory every year and are sold in over 100 countries worldwide, including Europe, the USA and China.

The site also fills softgel capsules with highly effective active ingredients in extremely low dosages, where the proverbial Swiss precision is required. Around 170 employees contribute to the success of the company in Kirchberg.

"I am very pleased with the decision to donate to an organization in our immediate neighbourhood. We would like to make a contribution to the valuable work of the Heimstätten Wil Foundation," explains Dr. Christian Luftensteiner, Managing Director at the Aenova site in Kirchberg. "Thank you to the Aenova Corporate Sales employees for their generous donation! Every bit of support helps us to get closer to our vision of an inclusive society," says Arlette A. Hippmann, Head of Communications, Heimstätten Wil Foundation.
