Corporate Social Responsibility has always been an important concern at NEUMAN & ESSER. Its primary focus is charitable and educative projects within the local surroundings. With it, NEA wishes to arouse young people’s enthusiasm for technology, for example via cooperation with schools or targeted fostering of girls and boys in Übach-Palenberg, Germany.
NEA takes on apprentices far beyond its own requirements at all its German locations, also in economically underdeveloped regions. Here, not only the classical vocations can be chosen by the more than 90 young people. Together with the European University of Applied Sciences in Brühl, the University of Applied Sciences in Aachen and the University Zittau/Görlitz, NEA also offers dual training programs.

His grandson Klaus Peters joined the Supervisory Board in 2002. Just as his daughter Stefanie now, Klaus Peters expended efforts for the regional economy within the Chamber of Industry and Commerce, IHK Aachen. Alexander Peters is involved in the Board of the Association of German Machinery and Equipment Constructors. He has already supported the interests of the sector as the Chairman of the Association since 2011.
On the occasion of the company’s 175th anniversary, the Peters Family decided to found their own foundation in 2005: the NEUMAN & ESSER Peters Family Foundation. It promotes science and research, cultural and culture and historic preservation as well as local heritage, in particular in the industrial region of Aachen. The NEUMAN & ESSER Foundation supports the maintenance and preservation of structural and technical facilities, awards scientific grants as well as contributions to museums and public collections.
