July 5, 2011 - PRLog -- Schwabe North America, Inc., parent company of Green Bay-based Enzymatic Therapy®, has made a generous equipment donation to the biology and chemistry labs at UW-Green Bay. The donated items include drying ovens, incubators, a micro-centrifuge, rotary evaporators, a Mel-temp unit and chemistry glassware.

Joe Schoenebeck, a University of Wisconsin-Green Bay laboratory technician, estimates that the used laboratory equipment donated by Schwabe would have cost the university between $15,000 and $20,000 if it had been purchased new.

“The donation was made possible after Dr. Willmar Schwabe Pharmaceuticals of Germany purchased Enzymatic Therapy in Green Bay, and decided to integrate it with Nature’s Way® of Springville, Utah,” said Brandon Podhola, Quality Control Laboratory Manager for Schwabe. “The Springville operations moved to Green Bay, the Green Bay lab was expanded — and a lot of equipment, much of it redundant, was moved.”

When SNA company officials made the decision to donate the extra equipment, UW-Green Bay was a natural fit. “After all, eight UW-Green Bay alumni work in the lab at Schwabe, putting into practice the skills they learned while earning their degrees,” said Podhola.

Schoenebeck expressed his gratitude for the donation, saying, “Schwabe’s gift not only strengthens the academic programs at UWGB; it also helps to prepare our students for life, careers and service to the community.”

In addition to the donation to UWGB, Schwabe North America is an avid sponsor of many local causes, often providing support with product or monetary donations. Employees also volunteer their time with a variety of organizations, and are given the opportunity to donate $5 each month to wear jeans for one week. Each “Jeans Week” raises approximately $400 monthly for a local organization – most recently the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
