Because of his many trips to Asia and his connections there, founder Frits Schrouff has developed a deep personal commitment to the local population. This has resulted in the Frits Schrouff Foundation, a charity which initiates and supports social projects like schools, orphanages, hospitals and disaster relief projects in several Asian countries. At the end of 2009, Frits Schrouff has been knighted in the order of Oranje Nassau (the Dutch Royal family) for his efforts. Heuschen & Schrouff OFT B.V. is a main sponsor of the Frits Schrouff Foundation, and thus directly contributes to the welfare in different Asian countries.
