TRITON supports RÜTGERS Foundation by donating EUR 250,000

Castrop-Rauxel, 17 December 2012

Triton Beteiligungsberatung GmbH is supporting RÜTGERS Foundation‘s work with a EUR 250,000 donation. The amount will be used to promote school-based natural science and technology projects that deal with renewable energy and the sparing of resources. Triton owned the RÜTGERS Group from 2008 to 2012.

On 17 December 2012, Luc Hendriks handed a EUR 250,000 cheque to the Chairman of the RÜTGERS Foundation’s Administrative Board, Uwe Holland, on behalf of Triton. “The additional funds are extremely helpful for our work,” commented Holland. “These days, many schools deal with energy supply issues and send us very interesting project proposals. Now, even more of these projects can be realised.”

“The RÜTGERS Foundation arouses enthusiasm for natural sciences and technology among adolescents. Our donation is intended as a meaningful contribution towards society and the support of young people,” remarked Luc Hendriks. “We would like to take this occasion to express our gratitude to the management, Advisory Board, labour representatives and the entire staff of the RÜTGERS Group for the very good and successful cooperation in the past years.”
