Testo marks 60th anniversary with £10,000 charity challenge and company celebrations

Testo is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year.

The motto of the jubilee year is: Testo says thank you. “We can look back on six decades of dynamism and successful pioneering as a high-tech specialist. Numerous employees, customers and business partners contributed to the long-term growth and success of the company. That is why the 2017 anniversary year is under the motto, Testo says thank you,” explains Testo CEO Burkart Knospe.

Daniel Auer, managing director of Testo, also adds his gratitude, “Testo UK would like to add its thanks to all UK customers and distribution partners for their ongoing support and business.”

In celebration, Testo held a Gala Dinner at the Freiburg Exhibition Centre for 1,300 employees, retirees, international guests, as well as VIPs. A fabulous evening was enjoyed by all who attended with guests enjoying a sumptuous meal, followed by live bands and performers.

To mark its 60-year anniversary Testo took on a worldwide charity challenge, with the aim to get fitter as a team and raise money for a great cause.

Testo UK challenged their employees, friends, family, customers and business partners to run, cycle or walk to help achieve our target of 25,000 km and raise money for Treloar School & College for young people with physical disabilities.

Testo are incredibly pleased to announce that thanks to their dedicated team they have completed the challenge and achieved their target. In October, Testo employees, Treloar’s staff and some of the students who will directly see the benefits of this donation joined together in celebration of this great achievement. Auer was delighted to donate a cheque for the fantastic sum of £10,000 to Treloars’ Director of Fundraising, Jon Colville. 

The money that Testo has donated will be used to send Treloar’s Year 9 and 10 school groups on a week-long residential adventure study course called ‘Pushing the Boundaries’. The course is specifically designed for young people with physical disabilities and allows students to experience adventure sports for the very first time, in a safe and supportive environment. 

Everyone involved has thoroughly enjoyed taking part in this challenge, it has allowed them to get fitter as a team and donate some money to this incredible organisation.

“We are incredibly grateful to everyone at Testo for taking part in the challenge who helped to raise a magnificent £10,000 for the disabled students who live and study at Treloar’s. Testo are at the cutting edge of their industry and understood the whole point of the Treloar ‘Pushing the Boundaries’ educational camps and were determined to help us. This money will quite literally help transform lives – Thank you most sincerely,” commented Jon Colville of Treloar’s School & College.
