Targeted promotion of education in the region – Sandler company endows professorship

On September 24, 2020, the new textile research center was inaugurated at the Hof University of Applied Sciences, Münchberg campus. To support the in-depth textile-specific education in the new facility, Sandler AG donated a professorship with a total value of 600,000 euros.

Committed entrepreneur and supporter of the region

For many years, Dr. Christian Heinrich Sandler, together with other entrepreneurs and associations, has been
significantly committed to the establishment of a textile research center at the Münchberg site

At the end of 2016, the state government approved the establishment of the institute, laying the foundation for the expansion of textile-specific training, which is essential for Sandler AG and other companies in the region

The close cooperation with universities and research centers is very important for us – therefore we have been cultivating these partnerships for a long time. We are glad to be able to continue supporting textile-specific education in the region.”

Dr. Christian Heinrich Sandler

For Dr. Christian Heinrich Sandler, it was both a concern and a task to further promote this field of teaching, and so Sandler AG decided to provide 600,000 euros for an endowed chair. The company is thus making a further contribution to the educational infrastructure for the Hochfranken region.

Prof. Dr. Koukal fills chair

The new chair has already been occupied since 2019: Prof. Dr. Claus-Ekkehard Koukal has a teaching assignment
at the Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften (University of Applied Sciences) in the subject of innovative textiles for the areas of nonwovens production, spinning, weaving preparation and textile warp. Before joining the university, Professor Koukal worked in the textile industry and in research and development. He continues to be active in consulting and research in addition to his teaching duties.

The research project “EFRE: The Future – Textile Industry 4.0”, which focuses on the transfer of know-how from research to small and medium-sized enterprises, or the project “Traveltex”, which deals with the development of functional knitted fabrics for travel clothing, are just two examples.
