Anton Paar is a high-tech company with a unique company culture and outlook. The Anton Paar 5K WALK/RUN is a charitable event that parallels some of the goals of the charitable Santner Foundation - the owner of Anton Paar. Here's some of what makes us different.
The Santner Foundation
Since the end of 2003, Anton Paar has been owned by the charitable Santner Foundation. Founded the same year, the foundation's mission is to benefit scientific research projects in the field of natural and technical sciences as well as the prevention and treatment of drug and alcohol abuse.
Since the transfer of ownership, profits from Anton Paar operations have been used to help countless people struggling with addiction, and have funded numerous scientific research projects.
Founded in 1922, Anton Paar manufactures and sells laboratory instruments for industry and research.
Anton Paar is a recognized world market leader in the field of density measurement. The company’s portfolio also includes rheometers, laboratory microwaves, refractometers, gas analyzers and much more.
With over 1700 employees worldwide, Anton Paar is committed to providing superior instruments and service to the scientific community worldwide.
Anton Paar In Motion
Anton Paar in Motion is a program to promote the health and well-being of Anton Paar’s employees. Ever since the company’s first days in 1922, when employees met on the soccer field during lunch, with founder Anton Paar in goal, the company has been focused on a healthy work-life balance.
Anton Paar’s 5K WALK/RUN is an extension of this program, aimed at promoting health and wellness in the communities in which we do business while supporting an important cause.
