In 2004, Ludwig Szinicz converted his company into a foundation-owned company and combined this action with a clear assignment. "TGW is not a purely economic partnership of convenience. It is a community of shared values that is driven by a purpose and follows the mission of its foundation. This community enables personal and technical growth as well as entrepreneurial success." It was a substantial concern of TGW's co-founder, who died in 2017, to combine economic success and appreciative cooperation – "head and heart", so to speak.
The TGW Future Private Foundation is the owner of TGW. Szinicz bequeathed all shares in TGW to the foundation, thus securing the future of the intralogistics specialist for the long term – fully in line with the slogan "Focusing on people – Learning and Growing". TGW cannot be sold and is a stable financial partner and reliable employer. The majority of profits stay in the company and are reinvested – in our employees and the technologies of tomorrow. In addition, ten percent of profits go to charitable projects.
The combination of business success and appreciative interactions plays a central role at TGW. Our value system is the basis for how we interact with each other and for our continued success in the future. The consistent implementation of our corporate culture and values is a form of securing our future and expressing our exemplary entrepreneurship. It is a powerful guide launching us into a successful future.
According to the philosophy of "Focusing on People – Learning and Growing", twelve values provide the framework for our collaboration and interaction. Consistent application of this values-based corporate culture helps us to ensure the future of TGW in the long term.
As the owner, the TGW Future Private Foundation ensures the long-term continuation and further development of the TGW Logistics Group. Special emphasis is placed here on exemplary corporate social responsibility and promoting the learning and personal growth of our employees.
