March 2021: Air disinfection with ClAIR

For cleaning our indoor air respectively for air disinfection, we use CLAIR fans for all our plants.

How does CLAIR work? The room air is sucked in with a fan power of 1000 m3/hour and swirled within a flow channel, inside CLAIR. The following UV-C disinfection (360 watts rated power) ensures a neutralization of viruses (also corona viruses), germs and bacteria in the reaction room. The specially developed turbulence technology in the reaction room ensures a long residence time of the air under intensive UV-C irradiation. CLAIR thus enables an almost optimal disinfection of the ambient air.

Through the use of CLAIR, we give our colleagues, as well as all visitors, greater security not to get sick with the Corona virus.

June 2020: Information on the special situation caused by Corona Virus Covid-19

Ladies and gentlemen, dear business partners,

the world is facing an enormous challenge. The global corona pandemic has an impact on each and every one of us, on all areas of our lives - and of course on the global economy and our company. The situation is and remains challenging.

In the last weeks, we have taken rapid and comprehensive measures to ensure the safety of our employees, customers, partners and suppliers. Furthermore, we continue to do everything in our power to avoid possible bottlenecks in the future.

We hope that you and your teams and their families will remain healthy in these challenging times and are confident that we will successfully overcome them together.

April 2020: Press release: Demmel develops and donates face shields to local hospitals.

Demmel AG in Scheidegg develops and donates special face shields to local hospitals in the corona crisis. "The donation is a matter of our social responsibility as a company", explains Thomas Holderried, CEO of Demmel AG.  “In these challenging months, it is important to support each other quickly and unconventionally. It is a need for us to support and contribute our neighborhood with our know-how to protecting and saving lives."

In the current corona crisis, it is also difficult for hospitals to get appropriate protective equipment. The special face shields are a result of the typical Demmel innovation and were developed within a few days. In contrast to pure respiratory masks, this shield consists of a forehead holder and a visor made of transparent polycarbonate, which also protects the eyes but does not restrict the field of vision. Breathing mask and goggles can easily be used under the visor. The visors are easy to clean and can be reused if necessary. So they provide additional protection for clinic staff who work directly on the COVID-19 patient and are therefore faced with a very high pathogen load.

The entire staff of Demmel AG admires and praises the tireless efforts of the nursing staff and doctors: "With our donation we would like to thank all people who are currently performing above average in the treatment and care of Covid-19 patients.
We have great respect for the work that is done here every day for the general public and our region. ”

The Demmel face masks can also be used in almost all other areas of life. Further information and direct ordering options can be found here: -> Demmel Face-Masks

April 2020: Demmel publishes sustainability report.

We are thus reporting in detail on our activities on sustainability topics in accordance with the requirements of the DNK. In the future, we will report regularly on these topics and publish our activities in relation to economic, ecological and social sustainability aspects.

The DNK is a transparency standard for reporting corporate sustainability performance. It can be used internationally and supports the development of a sustainability strategy. In order to meet its requirements, users create a declaration on 20 predefined criteria from the areas of strategy, process management, environment and society, sustainability-related goals, key figures and risks. The DNK is managed by the Council for Sustainable Development (RNE) on behalf of the federal government. It can be used by companies of all sizes and legal forms.

We invested around € 120,000 in this great project.
