Regional culture projects are close to our heart
FUCHS PETROLUB SE sponsors projects promoting cultural diversity, particularly in the Rhein/Neckar metropolitan region. Performances of the Nationaltheater or concerts of the Kurpfälzische Kammerorchester draw positive nation-wide attention.
With a total of € 10,000, FUCHS PETROLUB and Rudolf Fuchs GmbH & Co. KG support the fund raising campaign "Our House" of the Mannheim Capitol Foundation. The aim of the campaign is to acquire the building, where the Capitol is housed and which is currently up for sale, and thus continue the cultural events in the future. "It was important for us to contribute to the preservation of the Capitol as a cultural center," says Manfred Fuchs. Every year more than 130,000 spectators visit the 500 events of the Capitol. Thus the Capitol makes an important contribution to the cultural diversity of Mannheim.
FUCHS PETROLUB SE sponsors special events of the Nationaltheater Mannheim which enjoy large popularity within the Rhine/Neckar metropolitan region and beyond. Currently, the lubrication company is the proud sponsor of the opera “The Gambler”.
