Rothschenk as employer
G&H GmbH Rothschenk was founded in 1996 and to date we have a production and administration site in Aub. Currently we employ about 100 people. Since the beginning, we have attached great importance to being a social and fair employer. The following examples illustrate what we understand by this:
- Company pension and health scheme
- Ergonomics at the working place, health days and an anti-smoke course
- Flexible working models: full and part-time, mobile office, trust-based working hours, etc.
- Working in interdisciplinary teams
- Leasing compact cars and (electronic) bikes, safe driving training
- Free coffee from fair trade, petrol vouchers monthly
- Social events: summer parties, staff outing etc.
Energy and resources efficiency
As part of the EMAS environmental management system, we record our energy and resource consumption as well as emissions. These key figures form the basis for defining measures and targets. A positive effect is the constant questioning and optimization of our production processes.
However, we provide a comprehensive range of multi-way products and -systems and show environmentally friendly alternatives to our custoumers.
An important step is the research and testing of bio-based raw materials for our dunnage pads. Here, we work closely with our suppliers as well as external partners in the field of research and development.
However, did you know that the recyclability of our PP and LDPE dunnage is 100%, unlike kraft paper dunnage? This is because the latter contain plastic inside (inliner, coating), so that a complex separation of the materials is necessary for recycling. But our dunnage can be disposed of in its entirety via the yellow bag and recycled as a raw material for high-quality products.
Society and Social Affairs
Beside a sustainable supply chain management, we advocate for both global and local social justice.
We have been working with Mainfränkische Werkstätten GmbH since 2008. In this way, we promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in the labor market. Because our BIG valves are assembled by the people working there.
Once a year, we also open our doors as part of the "Türöffner-Tag" (door-opening day) of the "Sendung mit der Maus" (show with the mouse) and face the critical questions of our children and grandchildren. We playfully explain the basic principles of load securement and offer a variety of stations on the topics of the environment, sustainability and quality.
We are particularly proud of the social business (B)Energy, which develops mobile biogas technology based on our airbags. We have been supporting the inventor and founder Katrin Pütz since 2011. The innovative system provides people in Africa, Asia and Latin America with access to clean cooking energy and income opportunities. Because with every biogas plant installed and every biogas backpack produced, we make an active contribution to improving living conditions and protecting the climate. You can find more information about (B)energy here.
Sustainability is a global issue. As a medium-sized company, we consider it as a duty for us and our business partners to act ecologically and to motivate others to join us.
On the one hand, we must design processes to obtain optimal performance of energy- and material resources in the production. On the other hand, our end product or the components should be reusable or able to be returned to the resource cycle.
Social and ecological activities are the lived core of our marketing strategy.
As an entrepreneur, I look for possibilities. As a human, I bear responsibility. A sustainable development by humans and nature connects both and reflects my deepest conviction.
Fewer and fewer people are actively engaged in local clubs, though it is important for the social cohesion. As a member of my hometown football club SV Gelchsheim, I am proud that the company I work for supports us financially. This enabled us to promotion junior sport teams.
I am a passionate bike driver. With the high-quality bike, which I can lease from the company on favorable terms, I like to go back to work every morning and do something for myself and the environment.
