On January 28, 2022, Brigitte and Matthias Schirmer were awarded the Order of Merit of the State of Brandenburg by Prime Minister Dietmar Woidke. This extraordinarily high award for special achievement recognizes their work and in particular their commitment to sustainability. From the very beginning, it was of particular importance for the Schirmer couple to implement not only economic success, but with equal importance social and ecological aspects in their newly founded company Allresist.
Allresist‘s scientific innovations led to globally recognized products (CSAR 62, Electra 92) which were honoured with the Brandenburg Technology Prize. Numerous trade fairs and congresses in Germany and abroad successfully present their know-how “Made in Brandenburg” worldwide. A broad range of prizes and honours recognized the lived company philosophy, among which the 2012 Ludwig Erhard Prize, a Germany-wide competition, deserves special mention.
Allresist is involved in numerous projects to support society. Already at the beginning of the corona pandemic, the production of disinfectants was basically built from scratch and products were sold to clinics and social institutions at cost price. For many years now, social and humanitarian projects are generously supported with donations.
This social engagement was also emphasized by Prime Minister Woidke in his laudatory speech at the award ceremony. The pictures show the moment of the award ceremony. Allresist is clearly looking ahead – daughter Ulrike Schirmer will continue to run the company as managing director from 2024 onwards. And granddaughter Nora (also visible in the picture) may be the next generation to lead this successful and socially committed company on the way into the future.
