On June 2 and 3, 2018, we were delighted to take part in the Aviation Fair in Pardubice. The fair, which attracted outstanding pilots and famous aircraft, also featured a firework display, military land vehicles and equipment, and historical re-enactments. In addition, visitors were treated to performances by world aerobatics champions.
As part of our PLANBLUE sustainability concept, we launched the Bike2RONAL campaign last April. Our mission: All employees are called upon to travel to and from work in a way that is as CO2-neutral as possible. This is where we present the results.
The RONAL GROUP lined up on the starting grid once again between May 10-13 with Team Schirmer and Pirelli for the ADAC 24-Hour Race on the world’s longest track at the Nürburgring. Alongside five racing cars equipped with our wheels were some of our colleagues from different locations.
At the end of February, former Formula One driver Alex Zanardi (51) visited our Italian forging company App-Tech. Following a severe accident, he began a successful career in hand cycling and founded his own association to support handicapped children. We talked to this incredible man.
Some of our colleagues are not only working together but have also formed an athletic team: At the beginning of 2017 a formal running group was created in one of our plants in Wałbrzych, Poland. It is called RONAL POLSKA RUN. Find out more about its formation process here.
We receive designs from our clients for the production of our OEM wheels. Yet who designs the aftermarket rims that we sell under the RONAL and SPEEDLINE CORSE brands? One of these people is Alessandro Ghedin, a wheel designer at our Italian subsidiary.
With Bike2RONAL we have set up an environmentally friendly, in-house campaign to try and persuade all employees around the world to travel to and from work without making their carbon footprint any larger. Our colleague René has seized on this campaign to combine work and pleasure.
The RONAL GROUP’s commitment to a sustainable future starts with PLANBLUE. However, good words must be matched by actions. This is why we started the Bike2Ronal campaign in the 2017/2018 financial year.
