STULZ USA Launches Custom-Built Replica of Historic Ship
STULZ USA is committed to being a socially responsible company and is proud to support a children's charity, SHIP: Student Homelessness Initiative Partnership, near our U.S. headquarters in Frederick, Maryland. In support of SHIP, a creative team of employees built a boat to raise money for them this winter.
The project started from a sketch that Mr. Joerg Desler, President of STULZ USA, provided to the Engineering team, which they turned into a detailed design. Our manufacturing team turned that design into reality with a small crew of skilled craftsmen, who shaped the pieces of aluminum, structural steel, and copper into a beautiful replica of a 19th-century sailing ship, the "Rickmer Rickmers". The Rickmer Rickmers is a famous tourist attraction and art museum, moored in the harbor near our company's headquarters in Hamburg, Germany. The STULZ USA team name our boat the "Rickmer Rickmers Too".
The Rickmer Rickmers Too is one of ten boats that were launched on Carroll Creek for the "Sailing Through the Winter Solstice" charity event in downtown Frederick, Maryland. All the boats will sail through the winter solstice into early February 2019. Each participating company has chosen a local charity to sponsor and will be raising money for the selected charity throughout the winter.
If you're in the area this winter, be sure to visit our Rickmer Rickmers Too.
Each vote cast costs $1 and the proceeds go to our charity.
