Collective strength for the region! The HEINZ-GLAS Group shows matchless commitment in a number of projects, encompassing education, culture and sport.
“Little Eden”, the tropical greenhouse on the Rennsteig, and the European Museum of Flacon Glass that brings life to 5,000 years of the history of glass, a further project is worthy of mention: the introduction of Scottish Highland Cattle. To help preserve traditional grassland in Kleintettau, Scottish Highland Cattle were imported from Scotland in 1980. Since then these shaggy cows have proven a great service to the inhabitants of the region. Today the people of Kleintettau can say with pride: we were the first breeders of this strain of cattle in all Germany. Founding the FOS at Rennsteig, a private technical specialist college in a region lacking in infrastructure, opens up the opportunity for many young people to gain qualified school education right near their homes.
The HEINZ-GLAS Group leverages a long-term outside-the-box approach to decisively mitigate the issue of demographic change, as well as enhancing local appeal and quality of life.
