IMA Schelling and JSG Lübbecker Land - strong alliance for young people in the region


The international machine and plant manufacturer IMA Schelling, based in Lübbecke, has always had close ties with the Minden-Lübbecke region. With a new co-operation, the company is strengthening its commitment to the Mühlenkreis and building an important network with young people.

The new cooperation between the IMA Schelling Group and the Lübbecker Land youth football association, consisting of the youth sections of the clubs FC Lübbecke, BSC Blasheim and TuS Gehlenbeck, is multifaceted. It is based on a cooperative partnership with the aim of supporting and developing young people in the region. On the one hand, this relates to the promotion of voluntary positions, but also to social integration in sport. As a major employer in the region, the co-operation also focuses on the targeted transition to work and the creation of career prospects. The intensive collaboration thus creates a network for the more than 250 young people and facilitates the exchange of information about training and career opportunities.

To kick off the cooperation, the coaches of the individual teams were given ZIP jumpers by IMA Schelling. A joint football match with players from the JSG and IMA Schelling employees is planned for the near future. These and other activities are intended to gradually build up and deepen the network.

Lars von der Wellen, Director People & Culture at IMA Schelling, is delighted about the cooperation: "In JSG Lübbecker Land, we have found a strong partner with whom we will focus on sustainable cooperation and pursue the same goals. The focus will be on joint activities and mutual support."

The IMA Schelling Group, with its more than 1,850 employees worldwide, is also involved in many other social issues in the region. The company daycare centre, the promotion of sports clubs and a large number of school partnerships are just some of the measures that the company can demonstrate in the area of social commitment.
