The Group understands the critical role that environmental, ethical, legal and social dimensions play in its long term sustainability.

Each operating unit manages its own relationship with the community within which it is located.


In keeping with the decentralised nature of the Tyman Group, each operating unit participated in several local initiatives and charitable causes either associated with the unit or to which an employee has a personal connection.

AmesburyTruth is actively involved in local and national charitable initiatives through monetary donations as well as providing hours of community service. Big Brothers & Big Sisters, Make A Wish, United Way and Junior Achievement are all national programmes with which the Company has partnered financially and through volunteer hours.  Several of the sites support employee fundraising campaigns with United Way which helps raises additional funds outside of the Company.

AmesburyTruth participates financially and with physical involvement at the local Chambers of Commerce in Cannon Falls, Owatonna, Sioux Falls and Statesville.  During the holiday season and winter months, AmesburyTruth runs collection campaigns at the sites collecting winter wear, clothing and supplies for the needy.  Many employees are active with the local school districts and support sport teams.  Each site has a WAVE Committee (Wellness, Activity, Volunteerism, Events) which plans, co-ordinates and interacts with the community on programmes and opportunities.

Reflecting the international nature of this Division, the community activities in which each unit is involved ranges from hosting Macmillan coffee mornings, participation in the Muddy Race for breast cancer, and sponsorship of the local Budrio theatre.

As part of the 2017 Group Management Conference held in Budrio, funds were raised for a local charity. The nominated charity was in support of the first Wheelchair Tennis Tournament at the Budrio Tennis Club.  The SchlegelGiesse contribution was aimed at the removal of architectural barriers in the club, to help people of all abilities participate in this sport. With matching contributions from Tyman plc, the charitable giving raised €5,200.
