Althen and sponsorships
We are proud sponsors of various student projects, because we have a passion for (sustainable) technology and innovation. The technical students of today are the innovators of tomorrow. Projects that feature sportsmanship also appeal to us, that's why we sponsor sport teams in addition to the technical sponsor projects.
We are a proud sponsor of:
Fast as a plane, convenient as a train
