Rama Dama in Germering


For several years, the city of Germering has been organizing a so-called “Rama Dama“ event, which could be translated as “we are cleaning up”. Volunteers and local schools participate in this event that aims to free the local greens and forests from waste.

This year, Thermo Fisher Scientific was the first local company ever to join the event. A few employees volunteered to clean up the greens along the Landsberger Strasse close to the site. Thanks to the support of Rüdiger Obst, Kathrin and Marcus Ohlhaut, Christian Hilmer and Christoph Kessler, Susanne Kuchler and mayor Andreas Haas, Germering becomes cleaner and cleaner.

StadtradelnThis year, the Dionex Softron GmbH joined the local competition “Germeringer Stadtradeln” for the first time.

The goal of this competition is to cover as many kilometers as possible by bike instead of using the car, for instance.

Matching Gift Program to Aid European Flood Victims

Following several days of intense and heavy rain, central Europe is experiencing catastrophic floods that have burst dams, forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes, and killed at least one dozen people.

Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic are among the countries struggling the most – with some cities experiencing the worst floods in decades – and emergency workers and volunteers are working to contain the damage and assist in the recovery and cleanup efforts.

To assist with the relief and recovery efforts, Thermo Fisher Scientific has established a matching program for employee contributions to the Red Cross Societies and International Federation of the Red Crescent. The company will match 50 percent of employee donations made to these organizations.

The program has been designed to ensure that your individual donations can be put to work immediately, while the company match will be sent to the Red Cross after the campaign ends.

GirlsDay – Mädchen-Zukunftstag

GirlsDayOn April 25, 2013, the annual Girls’ Day – Mädchen-Zukunftstag took place all over Germany. For us as a participating company, it was an ideal opportunity to offer an insight into our everyday business and to share our enthusiasm about science with the girls.


8 girls in the age of 11-15 joined us for one day visiting different departments at our Germering site. Our HPLC products were introduced to the girls and they learned a lot about the tasks and responsibilities of the Software Engineering and the Technical Writing, the Assembly and Product Management. The participants were informed about the Recruiting Process and the possibilities of apprenticeships at our site.

With our program, we wanted to raise the girls’ interest in technical and science professions – and we are confident we reached that goal J. A big thank you to the girls, we had a lot of fun spending the day with you.

We are very looking forward to the Girls’ Day next year!
