Engineers without Borders

Hydrocarbon Engineering,

Over the year, GEA Heat Exchanger staff collect ideas and improvements suggestions to further improve the company. This time, GEA Heat Exchangers presented a special idea; for every suggestion that the staff submitted from 2nd – 20th December 2013 to the internationally installed in-house Idea and Improvement Management System, GEA would contribute €10 to the charity Engineers without Borders, Germany.

The charity

Engineers without Borders are a non-profit organisation that provides international engineering development support. It furnishes aid, for example, to schools, hospitals and isolated villages in the areas of water supply, sanitary facilities and power generation. By assurance of basic infrastructure facilities, this organisation improves living conditions.


Christoph Michel, Segment President of GEA Heat Exchangers said: ‘[W]e are pleased that so many of our colleagues took part in this idea campaign for such a good cause. GEA, as a mechanical engineering company, of course especially respects the charity Engineers without Borders Germany. It is indeed highly impressive to see how this organisation helps people in need, by sustainably giving them new opportunities to further their own development.’
