Committed to taking responsible action.
We see social responsibility through the lens of our determination to give children and young people a better future, one that is loving and worth living. Young people are our future. And no one can put a price on their smiles.
Our initiative Wir helfen Kindern e.V. (We help children) was founded by Paul Ege in 1998. Since then, the organisation has supported many projects for disadvantaged children in our region. These projects focus on pediatric cancer, violence against and abuse of children, poverty, education and integration.
Our team is composed of employees from the Alexander Bürkle Group who volunteer their time and effort.We are financed exclusively by donations,which have opened up prospects for a brighter tomorrow for many children – something we will continue devoting our energy to in future.

Created by Paul Ege in 2004 and supported since then by Alexander Bürkle, the Kunstraum is a space right in the middle of the company’s headquarters where everyone with an interest in culture can engage directly with the innovative potential of art.
With three to four exhibits each year featuring international artists, anyone can go and experience how artists are exploring the phenomena of our times – from digitalisation to globalisation.
We firmly believe that this dialogue with art opens up perspectives that in turn lead to unorthodox new approaches. Art means creativity! And creativity is the wellspring of innovation, progress and change.
