- International aid
The SEMIKRON Foundation was set up by shareholders of the SEMIKRON Group and went live on 4 December 2010.
The daughters of long-term SEMIKRON shareholder and CEO Peter Martin, who passed away in 2008, are equal founders of the SEMIKRON Foundation. In establishing the foundation, these women, in their capacity as shareholders in a family-run medium-size industrial enterprise, want to live up to their social responsibility, doing their part for SEMIKRON’s Corporate Social Responsibility at the same time. The charity and social activities of SEMIKRON shareholders, which were financed by the company’s profits for many years, will now be pooled and fostered within the scope of the SEMIKRON Foundation. One of the aims of the foundation is to continue and foster aid projects for children and people in need across the world within the framework of the Mali Martin Care e.V. charity set up by Peter Martin. In the past ten years, Mali Martin Care e.V. has put more then one million euro into aid and support projects for needy children and adolescents across the world, especially in Brazil (Centro Social and Lar do Menor projects). The SEMIKRON Foundation also promotes research projects and innovation in the area of power electronics.
