LIQUI MOLY boosts support for emergency services
Friday, June 26, 2020
German oil and additive specialist LIQUI MOLY has once again expanded its support for the emergency services and relief workers across the globe as they continue to fight the Coronavirus pandemic. The company has now increased its product donation to the value of €4 million.
To support rescue services, fire brigades and other first responders, LIQUI MOLY announced at the beginning of April that it would provide them with products worth one million euro. Managing Director Ernst Prost said at the time, “We help with what we do best, oils, additives and other vehicle care products.”
Requests for help poured in from emergency forces not only in Germany, but from all over the world. The demand was so great that the company soon afterwards increased its aid package to €3 million. Ernst adds, "Every day, we still receive numerous requests for free goods for fire engines or ambulances, for emergency vehicles, for mobile care services, meals on wheels, and many more … Should we really stop now?”
Ernst concluded that social responsibility is more important than maximizing profit in the year-end financial statements. He said, “The good cause is worth another million euro to us and we are hereby increasing our 3-million-euro product donation to make it a 4-million-euro product donation. All to help the helpers!”
