We attach great importance to a social commitment at our Saarbrücken location. Here we produce and here we live too. Martin Luck Metallgießerei GmbH is involved in various projects and supports various associations and organizations in the local community. Below are examples of some activities we are proud to be associated with.
We proudly support the Wheelchair Basketball Club RSV Lahn-Dill.
RSV Lahn-Dill – “The Most Spectacular Game on Wheels”
Europe’s most successful wheelchair basketball club with a total of 32 national and international titles is located in Wetzlar in central Hesse, around 70 kilometers north of Frankfurt am Main. Europe-wide, up to 4,000 visitors flock to the Bundesliga and European Cup matches of this professional team, which manages to live competitive sports and social responsibility equally. The RSV Lahn-Dill has produced numerous European and world champions as well as Paralympic winners in its history. Paralympic sport made in Germany with an unmistakable independent character, with pure passion and great commitment, also away from the sporty parquet.

We are committed to the Dragon Boat Team »Metal Casting Dragon«.
The World Health Organization WHO defines health very holistically – as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. Sport is one of the most effective health care measures. Sport promotes personality and team spirit education – and not just muscle building – so we support and support the team of the Dragon Boat Team “Metal Casting Dragon”!
“Metallgussdrachen” – a great team that is (almost) unbeatable!
The trainer Andreas “Richie” Reichert has formed a homogeneous, powerful team with his expertise, his infinite patience and serenity from 20 individuals. Through him, through their camaraderie and team spirit, this team has grown into a dedicated unit and is always good for a surprise today.
The team finds its place among the best teams in the Saarland. But the paddlers of the metal casting kites are always ready to accept austerities in their limited leisure time and to torture themselves in training. Before competitions up to 3-4 times a week. The training plan includes endurance training while running, strength training in the gym and of course the water training. In 2015, for example, they were able to achieve great success as the best Saarland team at the Monkey Jumble in Saarbrücken over 11 km, and also drive home the victory at the Indoor Cup in Calypso, Saarbrücken.
For the coming years, they are also firmly in the spotlight of the head of Saarland’s dragonboat sport and want to permanently establish themselves there. The team manages again and again to create common short-, medium- and long-term goals. The metal casting dragons “always set the sails correctly, because they know exactly where the harbour is”. Their common goal creates cohesion and lets them work together instead of working side by side.
That is why the LUCK team continues to support the »Metal Casting Dragons«.
The Dragon Boat Team »Metallgussdrachen« is organized in the canoe club Völklingen e.V. The club page with lots of information about the dragon boats and all other activities can be found at www.kanuclub-voelklingen.de/
We donate for Doctors Without Borders
Excerpt from the letter of thanks. Reprinted with permission from Doctors Without Borders
MSF helps people in need, victims of natural or man-made disasters and armed conflicts, without discrimination and regardless of their ethnic origin, religious or political convictions. As a humanitarian medical organization, MSF is committed to providing high quality and efficient healthcare in countries where adult and child survival is at risk.
Here are a few examples and project examples that underpin the work of the organization: addressing epidemics such as primary care and malaria treatment in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Emergency care for women with life-threatening complications during pregnancy and childbirth such as care for women with complicated pregnancies and births in Haiti. Treating patients with neglected diseases such as the treatment of the tropical disease Kala-Azar. The surgical treatment of injured persons in civil war areas such as surgical aid in the conflict area in South Sudan and surgical treatment of Syrian war wounded in Jordan.
We have set ourselves the task of helping where help is meaningful and sensibly implemented and implemented. Doctors Without Borders is constantly providing help beyond the usual scope by countless volunteers worldwide. That is why we have supported this great organization for years.
The increasing need of many people and the ever-widening gap between rich and poor has made us some time ago to donate the annual number of gifts planned for Doctors Without Borders. We would like to contribute a little bit of help where it is most needed. It makes no sense to us that those who are on the sunny side of this world and sometimes even in abundance, give each other gifts, while others lack the essentials to survive.
