We support local social and cultural initiatives

At Tembo we believe it is important to improve the social environment of our employees and their families. That is why we support local social and cultural events and initiatives.

RNT supports home for disabled children

RNT Machinery supports the home for disabled children Ángeles de Conani. Not only the company itself, but also its employees voluntarily donate money. The employees at RNT Machinery also organize parties at the home to entertain the children. The children are abandoned children with for instance mental problems, HIV and physical disabilities. The company has been supporting this home since 2017.

International Composers Competition

ITM Poland is patron of the International Composers Competition, which is held annually in Radom, Poland. The Arboretum contest aims to bring together contemporary music and the audiences of regular Philharmonic concerts. Managing director Leszek Sikora of ITM Poland: “We take great pleasure in sponsoring consecutive editions of the Arboretum. We are convinced that innovative entrepreneurship and such events as the Arboretum will ensure that Radom will be recognized as the city of inspiration."

Running for MS Research

The tremendous efforts of our worldwide personnel in 2018 helped to raise money for research into Multiple Scleroses (MS). 70 of our colleagues participated in the Zwolse Halve Marathon, others sponsored and collected money. the Tembo board doubled the amount of money raised. We were proudly able to hand over a cheque for 30 thousand euros to Dutch skaters and Olympic medal winners Ronald and Michel Mulder. In 2019 employees will participate and raise money for a cause again.
