TGW Sponsors Linz Relay Marathon

TGW, the specialist for intralogistics solutions from Wels, supports the Linz Donau Marathon on 15 April 2018 as sponsor of the relay competition. At the TGW Relay Marathon, a group of four runners share the total distance of 42.195 kilometres. The emphasis is not only on accepting the sporting challenge, but mainly on achieving a common goal as a team.


In 2018, the Linz Donau Marathon already takes place for the 17th time and it is a hotspot for running enthusiasts from all over Austria. The event represents joy of movement, a sporting challenge and of course, it is a lot of fun. "TGW is a performance-oriented company in which teamwork plays a major role. The relay marathon shows this cooperation and this is why we are supporting this event as a sponsor", says CEO Harald Schröpf.

Exercise and common activities have a high priority for the intralogistics solutions specialist from Wels and they are actively promoted. Amongst other things, employees can train at the in-house gym or improve their running performance with Günther Weidlinger. Not only does this have a positive impact on individual well-being, but it also puts the focus on common successes and team Building.



New headquarters: Exercise is of particular importance

In mid-2018, TGW will open its new headquarters – called "TGW Evolution Park" – in Marchtrenk. Movement also played a major role for the design of the modern headquarters for 500 employees. "Amongst other things, there will be sports fields and a gym for employees", confirms Harald Schröpf. "Moreover, you can train coordination, balance and concentration with various pieces of sports equipment at the motor skills park." During a break or after an exhausting meeting, you can clear your head, refocus and relax there. At the same time, you can train really hard and meet your edge. The innovative concept was created in cooperation with a sports scientist.

Sponsoring the marathon shows how important teamwork and performance-oriented cooperation are at TGW. "We are looking forward to a great running event with many participants – and of course numerous motivated teams at the TGW Relay Marathon. There are also some groups within our company who will run together", confirms Harald Schröpf.
