Siltronic donates EUR 100,000 for victims of the flood disaster in Germany
Germany, Munich, August 13, 2021 – Siltronic AG, one of the leading manufacturers of hyperpure silicon wafers for the semiconductor industry, is donating EUR 100,000 to the victims of the flood disaster in Rhineland-Palatinate. Siltronic has chosen the Ahrweiler district's emergency aid as the recipient of the donation, which provides for unbureaucratic payment to those affected and is independent of the emergency aid provided by the state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
"We are shocked about this disaster and the devastation it has caused. We feel for the people in the flooded areas who have lost their belongings or even relatives and friends. We would like to support the suffering people in the Ahrweiler region with our donation," said Dr. Christoph von Plotho, CEO of Siltronic AG.
