Working together to grow

For our employees

We want to offer a working environment that goes beyond legal regulations and promotes employee motivation and potential. Remuneration commensurate with tasks and performance, flexible working time models and flexitime arrangements for a better work-life balance as well as various social benefits play an important role in this. We also strive for a culture of cooperation and tolerance that promotes fulfilment and satisfaction within the company.

Charitable commitment

The company's charitable commitment to society is an important concern for management and staff. The focus is on supporting the Wilfried and Martha Ensinger Foundation, which promotes social, scientific and cultural projects. However, the company also directly supports associations and initiatives in the communities surrounding the plants as well as the voluntary work of employees. In 2022, Ensinger was recognised by the Baden-Wuerttemberg Ministry of the Interior as a volunteer-friendly employer in civil protection.  



In all its facets enriches our collaboration, the personal development of our employees and strengthens performance. Whether gender, age, origin, professional development or personality – our collaboration is characterised by respect, honesty, openness and trusting cooperation. Short decision-making channels and flat hierarchies make it possible to take responsibility and show initiative.  

Equal opportunities

Giving all employees fair opportunities is an important concern for us. Flexible working time arrangements and the option of mobile working help to reconcile professional tasks with other roles and commitments in the private sphere wherever possible. We promote advancement within the company and access to management positions and want to enable women in particular to be more strongly represented at all levels and positions.

Employee development

We offer an environment that takes individual needs into account and promotes personal development. We agree goals and offer support in annual development meetings. A comprehensive range of training courses and development programs for managers create the necessary conditions for this. And even when difficulties and crises arise, mentors and assistance programs provide support in the search for solutions. 


Health in the workplace is first and foremost based on safety. Our comprehensive protection concept effectively counters hazards in the workplace. Specialists work with employees to analyse potential hazards, develop protection concepts and ensure that standards and requirements are met. Shift models are geared towards occupational health requirements. Company doctors provide medical care for the workforce, offer immunisations and provide information on various health issues. 


The Wilfried and Martha Ensinger Foundation

The Wilfried and Martha Ensinger Foundation plans and organises the main charitable projects for the company and the owner family. Its activities focus on social projects in Africa (Nigeria), Eastern Europe (Ukraine) and India. In addition, scientific work in plastics technology at German-speaking universities and cultural projects in southern Germany are supported. The foundation works closely with local co-operation partners on social projects. The projects are supported over many years in order to achieve lasting improvements. 

Social projects in India are an important focus of the foundation's commitment. For further information, please visit our foundation page.
