Social commitment

We take responsibility!

Despite the international orientation of the eastern Westphalian family business, its social commitment in the region, in particular at the company locations in Espelkamp and Lübbecke as well as the Lübbecke district as a whole, has been an integral part of the corporate culture for many years and in addition remains a special concern of the Gauselmann family.

With great personal commitment the entrepreneurial family supports numerous sporting, social, ecological and cultural projects, initiatives and institutions. The general idea behind this is to reinvest a part of the company’s success into society and also to improve the quality of life in this rural region and enhance its attractiveness as a business location.

Paul Gauselmann was awarded the German Federal Cross of Merit in 1993 for the manifold and generous social, cultural and sporting commitment he has demonstrated as well as for his dedicated services to the German gaming machine industry. About a decade later, the eastern Westphalian entrepreneur’s award was upgraded to Cross of Merit, 1st Class of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany. Furthermore, the towns of Lübbecke and Espelkamp thanked the entrepreneur for his exemplary commitment on the occasion of his 70th birthday by each awarding him honorary citizenship.
