The spokesperson for the federal government in Hessia, Michael Bußer, has awarded Tantec as the company of the month in July 2015. The company, which specializes in the manufacturing of equipment made from Tantalum, supports among others the youth work of the air-sports clubs in the Main-Kinzig region. State secretary Michael Bußer especially commented on the effort of Georg Raab, the managing director of Tantec GmbH: “With your commitment you are decisively contributing to the support of young people in the region. You give them a chance to develop a passion for the air-sport, to experience community and to undertake responsibility. With your support the clubs are able to enrich the life in the Main-Kinzig region with offers like the summer camp for young aviators, and different festivities like the “Drachenfest” or the “Flugplatzkerb”.”
The 500€ Tantec got as a prizemoney from the award went to the Gelnhäuser Tafel e.V. which collects and distributes food to those in need.
