Facilities

Our headquarters is in the technology park directly adjacent to the Bremen Airport, our management board and main administrative management staff work at this location. The electrical engineering department, certification facilities, electronic development department and production for the OEM market are also located here.

The company building, shaped like an aircraft wing, was built in 2005.

Our company success and growth over the past few years has made it necessary to expand. Therefore, in September 2013 AES unveiled a new headquarters building, double in size, to accommodate our growth.

In May 2010, AES acquired Schütt Elektronik GmbH, a company founded in 1995. This new branch of AES is in Hamburg, and specialises in lighting, communication and control systems for business and VIP aircrafts. This division develops unique and creative solutions. It is located in a converted, newly renovated warehouse with original furnishings and large windows, providing a space ideal for inspiring and innovative ideas. Our Hamburg branch focuses on developing versatile, multifunctional electronics, and custom solutions, in addition to maintaining and updating our devices in service. Naturally, our most successful applications are eventually incorporated in our portfolio, as a serial product.

Social Engagement

Our commitments
AES has been involved in a wide variety of charity projects since December 2010. These focus on both regional and international organisations who help people and the environment.
In Bremen, we sponsor the REFUGIO endowment fund and the Wilhelm Kaisen Bürgerhilfe. In terms of international charities, we are a current member of the WWF, actively involved in the PLAN emergency response fund. Additionally, we provide help for two PLAN godchildren Brayan and Mamawa.

A place of refuge
REFUGIO is an association providing help for refugees and victims of atrocities Most of the people who come to REFUGIO Bremen have been persecuted due to their religious, political, ethnical, or sexual affiliation. Often, they arrive with immense emotional strain and distress caused by wartime experiences. In an affiliated centre for psychosocial and therapeutic treatment, REFUGIO helps traumatised people find mental balance and stability, deal with past traumatic experiences and strengthen their own resources in their own native languages. The goal is to help people find their way back to their life now, in a new, foreign society they, call home.

People of Bremen, helping the people of Bremen
The Wilhelm-Kaisen-Bürgerhilfe is an umbrella organisation for many social aid associations in Bremen. These include: the Arbeiterwohlfahrt (the workers’ welfare agency), the German Red Cross, the Caritas (the Catholic welfare agency), the Inner Mission and the Paritätische Wohlfahrtsverband (a joint welfare association).
The Wilhelm-Kaisen-Bürgerhilfe organises help for disadvantage people in the Hanseatic city of Bremen  Single parents and children, the disabled, elderly, and homeless people benefit from sponsored projects. These include meeting centres, neighbourly help, accommodation and care services, debt counselling and other helpful services.
Preserving biological diversity – a living planet for our children and ourselves.
AES is a member of the World-Wide Fund for Nature (WWF). We support wildlife conservation projects with contributions. These projects include developing conservation areas and national parks, the training and funding of workers, as well as, protection projects for endangered species.

Enable emergency aid
The PLAN emergency response fund is responsible for immediate disaster management, medium-term reconstruction plans and long-term projects designed to prepare people in the event of a disaster. The PLAN emergency response fund provides fast, direct response that covers the immediate needs of the people concerned. This includes drinking water, food, medicine, emergency accommodations, building materials, trauma healing, and temporary school instruction. Medium-term actions include home construction, school construction and the rebuilding of infrastructure. The emergency response fund also finances surgeries for seriously ill children.

Our godchild Brayan
Our godchild Brayan lives with his mother, his brother, and grandparents in the southwest part of the Dominican Republic. Brayan is doing well at his basic primary school. His family is Catholic and speaks Spanish.
The Dominican Republic has a tropical climate with two rainy seasons, from April to June and August to October. During the rainy seasons, Brayan’s family obtains water from a privately drilled well in the backyard. During the dry season, they fetch water from the surrounding creeks and rivers. The family also has its own latrine. Garbage collection is irregular, which means that waste is buried in their direct environment or burned. The electrical power supply is also unreliable and functions just a few hours each day. A sparsely equipped health care facility is approx. 30 minutes away, lacking vital medicine, drugs, and equipment.
Extreme poverty causes repeated riots and violent conflicts in the Dominican Republic. This means that children there are exposed to violence on the streets, in school and at home. Many of them are forced into child labour and exposed to prostitution and sexual exploitation, due to highly organised sex tourism. The children suffer from neglect, inferior quality education and insufficient healthcare. By supporting PLAN International Deutschland e.V., we play a role in improving the living conditions for Brayan and his family and friends.

Our godchild Mamawa
Mamawa lives with her mother, a provincial woman, and sister in northern Liberia, close to the border of Guinea and Sierra Leone. She attends primary school, and her favourite subject is sport.
Mamawa belongs to the Muslim minority and speaks English. This area of Liberia has a tropical rainforest climate which transition to a savanna climate and has a rainy season from May to October. Access to sanitary basic services are insufficient. Mamawa’s family has no latrine, but uses the open terrain and obtains water from a publicly drilled well. The closest health care facility is approx. 45 kilometres away.
Liberia is plagued by extreme poverty, children are exposed to child trafficking, child labour and child marriage. People also lack sufficient nourishment and access to clean drinking water. The civil war from 1989 to 2003 destroyed the education system, making access to education practically non-existent in many cases.
Women and girls are severely threatened with female genital mutilation and sexual abuse. PLAN works to educate community members, specifically on these issues. PLAN also helps to organise the education system and attempts to abolish administrative barriers in Liberia. Now, it is impossible for us to send any gifts or even school materials to Mamawa. We play a part in improving living conditions for Mamawa and her family, by supporting PLAN International Deutschland e.V.

Corporate Health Promotion Management

The physical integrity of AES employees is a major concern of ours. Therefore we cooperate with the health insurance “hkk” to perform our corporate health promotion management.

The corporate health promotion management involves presentations of external speakers, anonymous employees’ surveys for demand analysis, planning and execution of healthcare measures as well as the assessment of the results.

We are especially happy that a strong team of 25 motivated colleagues accepted the challenge of this year´s B2Run, the 2004 established nationwide company running event. We are proud to have such an active team and we are already looking forward to next year´s challenges.

With this health promotion we strive to create beneficial work circumstances trying to achieve the following objectives for our employees:

  • A positive health culture
  • Higher job satisfaction
  • Increasing well-being at the workplace
  • Preventive health measures and profound knowledge
  • Helping our employees to help themselves
  • A high attendance at our annual AES healthcare event
