The worldwide operating French company ERMEWA GROUP sponsors Ursula SCHREGEL as artist of the year 2018.
ERMEWA GROUP is a global player in asset management specializing in the deployment, design, construction and maintenance of railway wagons and tank containers. ERMEWA GROUP is one of Europe’s leading freight car rental companies and one of the world’s leading providers of tank containers.
The declared goal of the group is to make the transport of goods easy and to invent and develop the mobility of tomorrow. Bringing people closer to one another means for ERMEWA GROUP also to understand art and culture as part of the coexistence within and outside the company, in the context of internal and external communication.
One of the core values of the ERMEWA GROUP is to promote promising young talents. Against this background, the ERMEWA GROUP decided a few years ago to promote and sponsor emerging artists, who presented ERMEWA GROUP as part of its marketing events, in particular at trade fairs and exhibitions.
So in 2016, for example, 10 street art artists in a 24-hour action on the Gare d’Austerlitz (Paris) motor coaches in great works of art and in 2017 designed Munich street artists throughout the transport logistics fair waggons to art objects.
To expand on this approach, the ERMEWA GROUP has decided to select and sponsor an artist every year. As part of her exhibitions in Paris in 2017 and 2018, the French group of companies has become aware of the German artist Ursula SCHREGEL and has therefore decided to support her artistic work this year.
