As a company and as an employer, LITEF recognises its responsibility to community and to society.


LITEF is a socially committed company. Our social, ecological and economic responsibility is very important to us, and is the foundation of our action. We promote and encourage the health and sports activities of our employees. We operate in accordance with a local environmental concept. We support a wide range of social projects as well as the social commitment of our employees. We show commitment to many local schools and higher education institutions.

As one of the largest air rescue organisations in Europe, the DRF is in operation every day, saving human lives. Safety is Job One and is also assured by LITEF systems. Our products can be found in many aviation applications, for example here on the Airbus H145 helicopter operated by DRF. The DRF depends upon financial support to enable it to keep on expanding the scope of its life-saving work. LITEF contributes to that by giving the DRF financial support, to ensure that the best possible air rescue is still there in future.



We cooperate with the German PRM organisation that trades as Arbeit für Menschen mit Behinderung gGmbH (AfB). The AfB is Germany’s first charitable IT systems business. LITEF donates PCs, monitors and other IT hardware to the AfB. The AfB facilitates workplaces as well as the reincorporation of handicapped people in working life.

SCHÜLER-INGENIEUR­AKADEMIE (SIA) [pupil engineer academy]


Based on the motto Enthusiastic About The Engineering Profession, LITEF involves itself in the Student Engineer Academy, the SIA. This initiative should awaken the interest of senior high school pupils in engineering as an academic discipline and equip them better for it. To accomplish this, LITEF runs a project called Experiment & Statistics - What Role Does Random Chance Play?. This question is pursued using a fictitious example and through practical measurement operations, under the supervision of engineers from our company.



"The Discoverers of Today are the Inventors of Tomorrow" – another reason why LITEF actively supports young people. At the Science Days, our trainees regularly present interesting projects. With our financial support for 'Jugend forscht' [Research by young people] and our active participation, we can assist with vocational guidance. In cooperation with schools, we conduct regular application training sessions. On Girls‘ Day, LITEF enthuses girls for technology.

In cooperation with schools, we conduct regular application training sessions.



LITEF is dynamic and agile. This is also illustrated by about a dozen company sports groups whose many and varied activities receive active support from ourselves. As well as popular sports such as football or tennis, many of our employees keep body and soul together by ice-skating, climbing or playing chess. In addition, LITEF meets the majority of costs for the Koronar sports group that is also open to external participants. Under the guidance of a graduate sports teacher, the group exercises to prevent cardio-vascular disease.
