The earthquake which struck Japan in March 2011 has been a cause of great concern at Niehoff, a well-known machinery manufacturer located in Schwabach, Germany. The family-owned company has donated 6 million yen (around $75,000) in humanitarian aid for the earthquake victims.

The Niehoff workforce, Senior Management Team and shareholders are committed to actively helping people in Japan by providing financial assistance. The donation was passed on to the Japanese Red Cross in the hope that the aid will improve the situation of at least some of the people affected.

Niehoff has very strong ties with Japan. The company opened a sales office there in 1991 (Nippon Niehoff Co., Ltd), and it has developed a very close relationship with Japanese customers over the years. Niehoffimmediately contacted its staff in Japan as soon as media reports on the catastrophe began coming through. Fortunately, neither the employees over there nor their families were directly affected by the earthquake.

Niehoff which has its headquarters in Schwabach, Germany develops and produces machinery and production systems for cable & wire manufacturers in more than 100 countries. Founded in 1951, the company currently has around 700 employees. Its success in maintaining the ideal balance between tradition and innovation has made Niehoff the world market leader. Holistic product design and performance characteristics, a highly-skilled workforce, a keen sense of responsibility for the environment, a distinct technological edge, proximity to the customer and uncompromising product quality are the reasons why Niehoffhas remained at the leading edge of the industry
